New C9 Route

On April 3, 2017, the C9 New Westminster Station/Lougheed Station will now permanently travel through the Fraserview neighbourhood in New Westminster via Cumberland and Richmond streets.

Construction of a new bus-only turning light by the City of New Westminster is complete and, as a result, the C9 will be able to make a fancy left-hand turn onto East Columbia Street.

Travelling to New Westminster or Lougheed Stations?

Make your way to any in-service bus stop on Cumberland Street (bus stop #60079, 60166, or 60167).

Did you know?

Permanent changes to the C9 are being implemented as a result of the 2015 Transit Network Review.

TransLink consulted the public and as a result, we received more than 12,000 completed surveys and hundreds of emails, letters and phone calls.

Thank you to residents and those who participated in the 2015 Transit Network Review.

On Friday we announced the official completion of New Westminster Station upgrades taking the total completed stations from two to three. This was the latest of seven key SkyTrain stations and exchanges across the transit network that TransLink is currently in the process of upgrading.

The completed upgrades at New Westminster Station include:

  • A new elevator and escalators to improve access for customers with disabilities
  • Improved lighting throughout the station
  • Glass panels to replace the mesh screens and improve station visibility from street level
  • Better integration with the surrounding community to make it easier to connect to and from the SkyTrain system
  • New public art that improves the experience of riders

These upgrades mean improved passenger capacity, accessibility, safety and overall customer experience for our customers.
