With September comes the start of the school year and a ramp-up for many businesses—so starting Monday, September 6, we’re making our quarterly bus service adjustments to reflect these changed travel patterns.
While I’ve already mentioned the trolley bus service returning to Granville Mall on September 7 , there are also a number of other service changes which we’ve just posted on our website. So make sure to check out the full list of transit service changes to see if your route is affected!
Here are the major highlights:
- The Capilano University Exchange on Monashee Drive is closed for construction. There will be temporary changes to bus pick-up and drop-off locations — check out this map.
- We’ve reorganized the bus bays at New Westminster Station bus loop — here’s a map of the changes.
- The C21 peak hour extension to Burrard Station is being discontinued, with service now terminating at Davie and Pacific. Customers travelling to or from Burrard Station should use the Canada Line or Burrard Street buses. Here’s a map of the changes! Edit: Btw, I’m told that resources saved from the discontinuation of the C21 peak extension to Burrard Station will be re-invested to help reduce peak period crowding on the Davie Street portion of the C23 Main Street Stn/Davie Community Shuttle. In case you were wondering!
- And as I’ve mentioned, trolley buses are back on Granville Street starting September 7. Probably the biggest and most important change to know about!
We adjust bus service like this four times a year, reflecting major passenger ebbs and flows in April, June, September, and December. Look out for the next set of changes in December! And please pass this along to anyone who might find this useful!
