    Just so I understand this correctly, the 5 will be running on Robson west of Burrard, even though Robson will be a pedestrian corridor west to Bute?

    I’m getting someone to confirm this for you!

    OK, here’s the answer.

    The best way to describe it is a with a map: http://www.translink.ca/~/media/Route_Files/61/routemap/r005.ashx

    I hope that clears it up!

    I’m sure the 405 and C94 don’t service the Pacific Coliseum site. Removing those routes should make it less confusing for event-goers.

    the post says almost all of them will be restored in march, so which ones won’t be?

    rjones: I guess I worded that wrong–I’ll give it an edit to make it more clear. What I meant was that some routes will be go back to their regular service and stops in February, not March, like the N24 and the North Vancouver routes. All routes will return to their regular service!

    thanks for clearing that up
    even though the temporary route change made my commute more convenient XP
    oh well, it’ll be fun while it lasts

    Well, glad it’s working for you at the moment :)
