Bus Route Buzz: 135 SFU/Burrard Station/160 Port Coquitlam Station/Kootenay Loop

Bus Route Buzz
95 B line 160 map

As we mentioned yesterday, the Buzzer blog will be featuring the top 10 affected areas for this year’s Winter Service Changes and integration for the Evergreen Extension.

Today, we’re focusing on three routes; one is out, one is new and one has changed.

Let’s delve in!

95 B-Line

This brand new B-Line provides a more reliable and direct service with limited stop along Hastings.

Here’s the route:

The new B-Line will stop at: Burrard Station, Granville Street (Waterfront Station), Cambie Street/Abbott Street, Main Street, Commercial Drive, Nanaimo Street, Renfrew Street, Kootenay Loop, Gilmore Avenue, Willingdon Avenue, Hythe Avenue, Holdom Avenue, Kensington Avenue, Duthie Avenue and SFU Transportation Centre.

160 Port Coquitlam Station/Kootenay Loop

The 160 will provide local service in Burnaby and end at Kootenay Loop. This route change was made in order to provide better reliability and overall service.

Riders can continue to take the 160 from the Tri-Cities and transfer to the 95 B-Line along Hastings, beginning at Duthie Ave.

Heading downtown? The Evergreen Extension will now provide a faster and more frequent connected between the Northeast Sector and Downtown.

135 SFU

Starting December 19, the 135 is discontinued.

Stay tuned for the next edition in our bus route where we look at some West End and Downtown routes.

    One problem with the new service pattern: during the evenings, after Hastings (#14) service ends, there will be no local service between the B-Line stops at Renfrew and Kootenay. That’s a long way to walk, and will especially impact Playland visitors during the summer.

    Please considering adding a stop at Windermere (Playland) for the #95, as it has no other services besides #14 which does not run at the evenings.

    N9 seems to have some shortfalls. There’s no way back to Coquitlam between 12 and 2 in the early morning most nights. Neither is there a way to depart from either Downtown or Coquitlam at 4am. Not too sure about this claim of “24 hour service” on the Millennium Line if there are hour long gaps like this.

    Also heard rumours of the N9 not being articulated anymore.

    Is this new B-Line going to be all door boarding? If so, are they going to have extra Transit Security focusing on fare enforcement?

    Regarding the previous comments on the 95 and Windermere street though, the other way it could work is extend the 14 to Kootenay full time (increase connectivity to the 160).

    Hi there!
    The new 95 B-Line will not have All-Door Boarding (except at SFU where it happens now). However, because this is a new route, we will be closely monitoring the stops and ridership stats along the route to see if All-Door Boarding is needed at other or all stops. Thanks!

    Thanks for your comments, everyone. If you do have concerns about stops, routes, etc., I really encourage you to contact Customer Relations. This feedback will help shape changes in the future. You can do that online here: http://feedback.translink.ca/ or by calling 604.953.3333. Thanks!

    Please add the awindemere stop back (or at least have the 14 run after 7pm). Because of the changemail, I have to walk a really long way to get home after dark.
