Open houses for the new Golden Ears Bridge bus route

Open houses for the new Golden Ears Bridge bus route

When the Golden Ears Bridge opens in 2009, we’re going to use the new connection to offer a brand new bus route between Langley Centre and Haney Place. That bus is the #595 Langley Centre (not the #555 as listed in the Buzzer) and we want customer input on it!

So, we’re inviting the residents of Maple Ridge, Pitt Meadows, North Surrey and Langley to attend our two #595 open houses next week. The listings are the same as in the November Buzzer:

  • Tuesday Nov. 18, 3-8pm: Langley Public Library, 20399 Douglas Crescent, Langley
  • Thursday Nov. 20, 3-8pm: Haney Place Mall, 11900 Haney Place, Maple Ridge

It’s currently anticipated that the route will operate every 30 minutes from 5 a.m. to 9 p.m., between Langley Centre, Walnut Grove, Maple Meadows Station (West Coast Express) and Haney Place, using conventional 40-foot buses. It will be a limited stop service, providing a fast connection to significantly shorten existing trips. We’re looking to start service in September 2009!
