The September Buzzer is now out!

The September 2009 Buzzer is now on all buses, SeaBus, SkyTrain, and West Coast Express!

In this issue, we’ve got all the details of the September 7 bus service changes, which feature some major route adjustments owing to service integration with the Canada Line.

We’ve also put in all the details of the Commercial-Broadway Station renaming.

The list of changes are so big we didn’t really have room for any other info! The “Back Issues” history item will return next month when things aren’t so busy.

We are again proud to have a cover from a Canadian illustrator, Jane Koo. Yes, the cover says “Michael Gilbert” on it, but that’s a mistake: it’s JANE KOO! (Michael is next month’s illustrator!)

Jane’s illustration is wonderful and I will be doing a little interview with her soon, both to highlight her work and to make sure everybody knows she did the cover :)

As always, if you can’t get the Buzzer on the system, you can always read it in PDF form on our website. Visit our Buzzer PDF archives, which stretch back to the heady days of June 2006. (Here’s the direct link to the September issue PDF.)

Remember to enter the FareCard contest too! Win a free FareCard in every issue of the Buzzer: read the issue, then email in your info and the answer to the trivia question by Monday, September 28 at 9 a.m. to win!

Enjoy the latest Buzzer as always! Comments are welcome below.

    Re: the C89, Note just the “seasonal” EXTENTION to Centennial Beach is ending, NOT the entire route as it reads now…

    Yes that’s right: thanks for the clarification!

    PS: I passed your suggestions re: the 19 and 89 over to my colleague in charge of those revisions, and they have been noted!

    For all those people wanting SEMI Express SERVICE along Granville St. in Vancouver up to 41st Ave in order to get downtown; my advice is to use #480.

    Frequency is greatly improved and using that bus will get you all the way down to 41st.

    Private school students can transfer to a #10 local to King Ed for the schools there or commuters heading downtown can catch #43 over to Oakridge for C-Line.
