The City of Vancouver has decided to close Robson Street west of Thurlow, affecting our bus service on the 5, 6, and N6 routes. These routes will now be rerouted for the Games period.
(This means there’s no service at all on Robson. The only eastbound service on Davie is the C21/C23 Community Shuttles, and they’re quite full. Please try to walk across the street and get the #5/#6 on their new routes, which are now running considerably more often than they usually do.)
Here are the maps of the reroutes plus the descriptions posted on our Alerts page.
Reroutes for the 5 and 6
From Hastings/Richards/Davie/Denman/Georgia/Pender/Homer/Hastings/Richards/Davie in a continuous loop. No service on Robson. No downtown service on Davie. Effective Feb 16 at 11:40am and for the balance of Olympic period.
Edit: As of Wednesday February 17, we’ve now added an eastbound service on Davie for the Games period only. The details:
A special bus service is being introduce effective immediately for the duration of the games. An eastbound “Special” will depart from the corner of Denman and Davie to carry passengers to Pacific Blvd. The service will run from 6 a.m. to 12 midnight each day. Service should be every eight to 10 minutes. Please note this is an eastbound service on Davie only. Customers are encouraged to use the regular westbound service for returning trips.
