Yes! The Commercial-Broadway 99 bus stop goes back to normal, Wed Dec 15, 2010

Riders wait for the 99 at Commercial-Broadway Station.

Update, Dec 14, 2010: I’ve just got word that construction has been extended a few days! So the 99 stop will now return to normal on Friday December 17, 2010. Sorry for the inconvenience!

Just in time for Christmas! I’ve just got word that starting Wednesday, December 15, 2010 Friday, December 17, 2010, the 99 B-Line stop at Commercial-Broadway Station will return to its original location (stop #52094) as construction in that portion is complete.

However, the 9 Alma and N9 Downtown will continue to stop at their temporary location until further notice. Here’s the original blog post with the map of the temporary stops.

Spread the word to those who will find this useful :) And thank you to everyone for your patience during this period, and to all our staff at Coast Mountain Bus Company for their assistance during this situation!

    This is great news! I look forward to the announcement on transit priority measures (included in just about every policy document produced by TransLink and the City of Vancouver) to make the B-Line run more efficiently. I believe that priority measures such as reserved lanes, signal priority, and bus-stop bulges were part of the package meant to compensate for the introduction of stops at Fraser and Arbutus, but I haven’t seen the signal priority yet. Perhaps some of the $185 million on the United Boulevard overpass could be directed there?

    Hey! I just found out the #2242 trolleybus which has previously been loaned from Edmonton, is now in the streets of Seattle! One of the Youtube videos even shows the bus being able to us most of it’s battery power, something it couldn’t do in Vancouver. Who knows where this bus will travel next! :D

    That’s really sad the 9 isn’t going back yet. I hate having to run from the 99 bus stop to the 9 bus stop across a street because it comes first. It just makes sense that they stop close together.

    zack: Yes! I have a new post up with a couple of photos. http://buzzer.translink.ca/index.php/2010/12/a-translink-trolley-visits-seattle/

    Tessa: Definitely. Hopefully the construction will be done shortly and 9 and the 99 will be together again soon!
