Downtown bus routes start getting back on track next week

Downtown bus routes start getting back on track next week

With the Games over this Sunday, many downtown buses will go back to their regular routes (or as close as they can get) as road closures are lifted.

However, just so you know, if the road closure schedule is revised, this may affect our bus reroutes — I will keep you updated if there’s any changes.

Please have a look at the info below so you know if your bus route is affected!

Monday, March 1

The #5 Robson/Downtown and N6 Downtown will return to their initial detour route from just before the Games, NOT their regular route. (That’s scheduled to happen on Thu Mar 4.)

That means the #5 will resume service in both directions using Denman, Robson, Burrard and Pender, and since the Robson Square zip line will be open till March 21, the #5 will stay on this route until March 1–3 March 21.

The N6 Downtown will use the same detour routing as the #5 Downtown.

#6 Davie/Downtown will return to its regular route using Davie and either Seymour northbound or Richards southbound.

C21 and C23 Community Shuttles will resume service between Yaletown-Roundhouse Station and Main Street – Science World Station, but via a temporary alternate route. (Regular routing between those stations is scheduled to resume March 14.)

Note: North Shore routes #240, #241, #242, #246 and #247 will continue to use a temporary downtown terminus on Georgia through March 21. (They were originally scheduled to revert to regular terminus on March 1.)

Tuesday, March 2

The #17 Oak/UBC/Downtown is now back to its regular route.

Wednesday, March 3

#50 False Creek South/Waterfront Station is scheduled to return to regular routing along the south part of Granville Mall.

Thursday, March 4

#15 Cambie/Downtown and NightBus services N6 Downtown, N8 Fraser and N15 Cambie/Downtown are scheduled to return to their regular routes.
