Morgan Freeman’s soothing voice can now be heard on SkyTrains and buses all over Metro Vancouver.
The Oscar-winning actor gives advice and dolls out interesting facts about our fine city.. but let’s face it, with his smooth voice he could be telling us almost anything about the city and we’d probably be happy to hear it!
Apparently it’s all part of a marketing campaign from Visa which is running for a limited time. So enjoy Morgan’s voice while you can.. listen below!
