Swapping out your sunglasses for a scarf and mittens? TransLink’s transit services are making some changes too!

Beginning December 15, you can expect new travel options, increased trips and service to better match customer demand. Translation…there are 10 NEW stops and improved service on 8 routes this winter!

Service changes can affect many routes, so “know before you go” and use TransLink’s trip planner to check if your route’s changed.

Highlights

  • NEW trips on the 49, 410, 555 and C28 to reduce overcrowding. This is made possible by shifting service hours from routes with low customer demand.
  • Bigger vehicles on the 188 and C98 serve more customers; conventional buses replace community shuttles on these growing routes.
  • 10 NEW stops for the 116 to better serve Burnaby’s growing Big Bend industrial area.
  • The 404 now ends at Riverport Recreation Complex; passengers travelling to or from the Ladner Exchange can access multiple travel options for various destinations.

Buzzer readers, to help thaw the winter chill, we are hosting a contest with three transit prizes (make sure to check out the terms and conditions)! Visit our Facebook page weekday mornings, from December 1 until December 22, every day after 9 am for a clue to where the Snowman icon is hiding on the service changes page. Once you solve the clue, click on the Snowman to enter the contest. Happy Snowman spotting!
