Attention New Westers! …. New Westminsterians? Sappers?
Well, let’s just say if you live, work or take transit in and around New Westminster, this Bus Route Buzz is for you!
As a reminder, many of our Spring Service Changes bus improvements are made possible by the 10-Year Vision and part of a three-year roll out of bus expansion to reduce crowding, improve service frequency and capacity issues as well as expanding routes into underserviced areas. You can view upcoming changes to the bus network as a part of this plan here.
For seasonal Service Changes that happen four times a year, click here.
We heard you!

C9 New Westminster Station/Lougheed Station
Effective April 3, 2017
The C9 New Westminster Station/Lougheed Station now permanently travels through the Fraserview neighbourhood via Cumberland and Richmond streets.
This round of Bus Route Buzz is dedicated to the Central Tri-Cities including the 97 B-Line.
Wave goodbye to the 97 B-Line and hello to Evergreen!
The B-line will be discontinued as of December 19 and riders will now have a rapid transit option with SkyTrain on the Evergreen Extension.
This is much like what happened in Vancouver with the introduction of the Canada Line.
Travelling to school at Port Moody Secondary? The school will continue to be serviced by the 180 (formerly C24) and the 160 route.
We are also increasing the capacity of these routes during peak periods to help accommodate student demand. This means frequency will increase to 15 minutes and the route will now have full size conventional buses.
This route is getting a new name!
The C24 will now be the 180 Moody Centre Station/Lougheed Station and operate with a larger 40-foot conventional bus plus receive 15 minute frequency during peak periods.
The 180 will provide local service on North Road and St. John’s Street, via the College Park neighbourhood as the 160 continues to provide service on St. John’s Road, Ioco Road and Newport Village.
For local bus stops not serve by SkyTrain, take the 160 or 180.
Extended late night service on the N9 between Lougheed and Coquitlam Central Stations creates 24-hou service along the Millennium Line corridor.
Stay tuned for the next edition in our bus route where we look at some routes in Southwest Coquitlam.
Plan ahead! Visit Trip Planner to map your route – use December 19 or later as your travel date.
