The sun is shining and summer service changes are in the air!

Are you ready for the summer? TransLink’s transit services are changing to get more people to more places during these beautiful summer months!

Beginning June 22, you can expect increased trips heading out to Seaside and Buntzen Lake and fewer trips to post-secondary schools. There are also NEW trips during peak hours on some popular routes!

Services changes can be found on our website.

Even if you don’t see your route listed, service changes can affect many routes, so use TransLink’s trip planner to double check if your route has changed.

Take a look at some of the highlights of these service changes:

  • Increased connections for customers travelling between Carvolth Exchange in Langley and Lougheed Town Centre Station. The 555 will now end at Lougheed Station and directly link customers to a regional city centre with connections to key destinations. Late evening service is also being added on this route.
  • Extended route on the 395, which provides customers with more travel options between King George Station and Langley Centre.
  • More frequent trips to Stanley Park, Lynn Canyon Park, Buntzen Lake and White Rock Beach.
  • Late-night service increases between downtown Vancouver and SFU.
  • NEW trips on the 100 and 335 to reduce overcrowding just before/after peak periods. These are made possible by shifting resources from routes that currently have low customer demand.

Learn about all the travel choices in your community by visiting TransLink’s TravelSmart program for information, resources and tips.

    I’m happy that the 555 now goes to lougheed. It’ll save much time as braid is always congested.

    I really don’t see the point of the 129 continuing to Metrotown and would rather it was permanently changed to end at Patterson Station.

    I’ve wondered, when these seasonal changes are announced, which “routes that currently have low customer demand” are being affected. Surely customers should also be informed that route X has its frequency decreased from 15 to 30 minutes, for example.
