Translink Buzzer Blog

The West Coast Express website is moving to TransLink.ca!

The old homepage for WestCoastExpress.com!

In our efforts to better serve our customers and make transit a one-stop shop on the web, we’re integrating the information found at westcoastexpress.com into translink.ca. The URL for West Coast Express will still exist, but will redirect to the TransLink website starting today.

This process has been in the works for a little while. Information found on our the WCE website will be found on our website, with a dedicated WCE page within TransLink’s website.

And there’s also a plan to expand the content related to these two services on our website. Having WCE content managed by one team helps us update all of our information faster and more consistently.

Our website is constantly evolving and growing with new content. We hope you like the added info!

    And I envision CMBC and BCRTC to follow suit. Also, WVMT should increase it’s information accessibility by working with tranlink.ca. http://westvancouver.ca/Level3.aspx?id=2152 Examples are the “specials to PNE from W. Van”. (few people know about them). Also, there are special west van buses after games at BC place.

    Ah, and how good of the developers to redirect to the new West Coast Express subsection of TransLink’s site.

    I imagine West Vancouver likes their autonomy in operating their transit service. I don’t think they’ll be as willing to hop aboard such a plan. Still, maybe a page showing surrounding systems that could be created with links to their websites could be created. I envision links to West Vancouver Blue Bus, BC Transit (Victoria, Fraser Valley, Squamish, and Whistler), BC Ferries, Whatcom County Transit, VIA Rail, Amtrak, and Greyhound on these pages along with a small blurb about how they are relevant to the region.

    Sorry, I used the wrong phrase: “Work with translink.ca” means combine the west van city website with translink.ca rather than actually become one system.
