Splash into summer Service Changes!

summer_2016_buzzer_640x340

Four times a year (spring, summer, fall and winter), we adjust transit service across the region to make our network more efficient and provide service where it is needed most.

And where do riders need extra service during these sunny, summery months?

TO THE BEACH, of course! (Along with lots of other places too). Take a look!

Service Change highlights

  • More service to popular summertime destinations like Stanley Park, Lynn Canyon Park, Buntzen Lake and White Rock Beach.
  • Improve service reliability, decrease overcrowding and improve direct connections to key destinations with modifications to the 26, 41, 43, 49, 242, and 480 routes.
  • Provide better NightBus connections and increase safety for passengers: N8, N20 and N22.
  • Accommodate the City of Vancouver’s Burrard Corridor Project with temporary service adjustments to the 2 and 22.
  • Implement recommendations as a result of the 2015 Transit Network Review: 26, 41, 43, 49, 49, 480, N6, N8, N16, N20 and N22.

Summer Service Changes begin to take effect on June 27, 2016.

    I thought that Translink was getting rid of the N16… how does that “provide better NightBus connections and increase safety for passengers”?

    Yeah sure, cut 49 access to Champlain Heights, but no service increase to the 26? How is 30 minute service at best on the weekend any sort of replacement?

    I’ve got lots of things on my mind.

    The route to UBC. I’d like it if bus #43 would be an all day route instead of it’s peak routing. Also on weekends there’s no express along the route. It sucks to take a #41 where if the bus has to pick up and drop off passengers every single stop along the way.

    What do you do when the nightbuses stop running after 2:30 am? For some buses like #N8, N15, N17, N20, N22, N24 & N35 don’t run after that. What about nightbuses in West Vancouver, Pitt Meadows, Maple Ridge, Langley (N555-Carvolth Exchange/Vancouver Nightbus), Delta, Ladner, Tsawwassen, South Surrey/White Rock? What about those people have to transfer to BC Transit to Abbotsford and Chilliwack?

    Translink needs a system that would run 24/7/365. If SkyTrain closes for the night because of maintenance, try using SkyTrain operating every 30 minutes and have one of the section closed for the night to operate on a one way track for repairs.

    Translink needs to have a solution for transit. Even though there’s the possibility of low riderships, that doesn’t mean that you need to take a taxi to go to the destination where there are no transit service. You need to have a plan where people don’t want to take a taxi anymore. It’s too expensive. Uber and other devices are in the making and they’re trying into the customer’s frustration on what we need to get over there. I’m hoping that Translink maybe a thing of the pass and maybe hoping to have a system that would take us anywhere by transit around the world.
