10-Year Vision Spotlight

This post is part of our 10-Year Vision Spotlight series, breaking down the nitty gritty of what’s planned in Phase Two of the Mayors’ Council’s 10-Year Vision! 

Phase Two of the Mayors’ Council 10-Year Vision continues to bring more transit and transportation improvements to our region. It will not only improve mobility for residents, but also make progress towards the broader social, economic, and environmental goals of our region’s long-term strategies.

In this post, we’re breaking down all of the improvements coming to the Northeast Sector, Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows as part of Phase Two of the 10-Year Vision which we’re seeking public input on until May 11!

In March, we announced how we’re preparing to roll out four new B-Line bus routes by the end of 2019! This is great news for the Northeast Sector as the proposed Lougheed Highway B-Line will run from Coquitlam Central Station to Haney Place. Extended hours of service and reduced wait times are also to come with Phase Two of the Mayors’ Council 10-Year Vision.

On the rail side, you may have heard, 80 new SkyTrain cars will be available for service in Metro Vancouver by 2020 (28 of which are arriving early!).

In addition to the new B-Line and other bus service expansions and improvements, we’re also making changes to West Coast Express. Phase One of the Mayors’ Council 10-Year Vision funded the purchase of two new locomotives and refurbishment of 6 locomotives
for the West Coast Express. Phase Two plans for expanded capacity in Phase Three of the vision.

10-Year Vision Spotlight

As part of Phase 2 of the 10-Year Vision, potential upgrades, such as transit priority and enhanced passenger amenities, are planned for the 95 B-Line.

We’ve got a lot going on at TransLink these days. Already underway, Phase One of the 10-Year Vision is bringing a 10 per cent increase in bus service across the region and more!

Among the funded and implemented improvements in the Vancouver, UBC and University Endowment Lands communities are new B-Line routes on Hastings Street and 41st Avenue, increased service on SeaBus and 17 different bus routes, SkyTrain fleet expansion, as well as upgrades to SkyTrain stations, cycling, road and pedestrian infrastructure.

Phase Two, building on the first phase’s momentum, is set bring even more improvements to these communities and the rest of the region!

As part of Phase Two, we’re planning potential upgrades, such as transit priority and enhanced passenger amenities, for the 95 B-Line on Hastings Street and the new 41st Avenue B-Line.

We’re introducing service to the growing East Fraser Lands (River District) community and more NightBus service is coming with extended hours of service. We’re reducing wait times on the 26, 27, 44 and 100 as well reducing overcrowding on the 2, 4, 14, 25, 44, 49 and 84.

These are only the bus improvements! We are also introducing SkyTrain improvements, planning for rapid transit to UBC’s Point Grey campus, and building and operating an extension of the Millennium Line along Broadway to Arbutus Street.
