Holiday Service for Labour Day: September 2, 2013

IMG_9796

The new #96 B-Line route will use King George Boulevard to link Guildford and Newton Exchange!

 

Tomorrow is Labour Day (September 2nd, 2013)! Most of our services will be running on a Sunday schedule, including buses, Seabus, and SkyTrain Expo, Millennium and Canada Lines. The West Coast Express and TrainBus will not be in operation.

Also, September 2nd also marks the first day of September Service Changes, including the new 96 B-Line in Surrey! Check out Transit Alerts on the TransLink website for full details.

Remember, on Sundays and holidays, you can pay a single-zone fare to travel in all zones all day! As well, those with an adult FareCard, West Coast Express 28-Day Pass, or Annual Employer Transit Pass can take five children, or one adult and four children, on transit with them for free. (The offer doesn’t apply to concession passes.)

For transit service info, feel free to reach out to our call centre on Twitter (@TransLink) or at 604-953-3333!

 

UPDATE: September 3rd, 2013

Did you have a chance to see or take a ride on the new 96 B-Line yet? If you haven’t, not to worry – today is only its second day of service. Fellow transit rider Eric Webster took this great picture of the new express bus. Check out his Flickr photostream here for more pictures!

    That photo is the skytrain with caption of b-line. Will you have a photo of the actual B-Line tomorrow?

    Maybe they can also update the bus loop maps – Guildford shows the 96 but the Surrey Central and Newton Exchange maps don’t. The Frequent Transit Network map also still shows the 96 as a future route.

    How about update the signage to add the line

    “VIA SURREY CENTRAL” so people wont ask the same question

    Kelly: We’ve updated it with a lovely shot from Eric Webster!

    Sheba: We have made updated “Buses from Here” and “Walking from Here” maps at those facilities to reflect the new B-Line. The maintenance employees may be delayed with posting them. I’m told they will be up very soon. Thanks for the comment.

    Juan: Thanks for this. I’ll forward it to our service planning department.

    Juan: Are speaking about bus poles or the signs on the front of buses?
