Bus Route Buzz – Spring Service Changes

Bus Route Buzz

In December, we introduced Bus Route Buzz to the blog; your one-stop-shop for bus service changes.

Service Changes are here again, just like clockwork, and so is Bus Route Buzz! In this series, we will continue to provide an in-depth look at maps, schedules and route changes as well as explainer videos with our in-house planning expert, #DenisThePlanner.

We have so many exciting changes this spring to increase frequency and efficiency across our bus network, particularly in Surrey, Langley, Richmond and the Tri-Cities.

These changes, additional service and added transit areas is have been made thanks to the funding secured for the 10-Year Vision.

You may have already had heard the news, but in case you missed it, the provincial government recently announced that they are matching the federal government’s $2.2 billion transit funding commitment dollar for dollar! This funding will improve and expand transit in Metro Vancouver. You can view the press release about the announcement here.

In the coming weeks, stay tuned to Bus Route Buzz right here on the Buzzer blog for a closer look at some of the changes coming to buses starting April 24.

Have specific route questions? Tweet us or call 604.953.3333.
