The transit authority asks that young children be accompanied by an adult or responsible older child, and those in costume carry flashlights or incorporate LED lights or reflective strips into their costumes.

BC Transit recommends eye make up over masks, which can sometimes make it difficult for a child to see where they’re going.

“Remind all superheroes and villains to stop at the curb, look both ways and listen for oncoming traffic,” a BC Transit release says. “Remind the younger goblins and ghouls to never go into a stranger’s house or vehicle [and] only visit homes that want to participate in the Halloween fun – look for jack-o-lanterns and other decorations before you ring a doorbell.”
