That’s right, on September 7th bus service changes across the region will come into affect!
Service changes happen four times a year, every April, June, September, Christmas-New Year, and January, to accommodate seasonal shifts in ridership and improve service for more people.
This service change is a bit different. As service changes are set to roll out on the Labour Day Holiday, it means the schedule on September 7th will reflect holiday service schedule and may not show altered bus trips. So, you may not see a change in your route until Tuesday, September 8th.
To get ready for the changes, check Trip Planner before you travel on these dates as many routes across the system have been adjusted.
To get you in the service change spirit, here’s a few highlights:
- Weekday trips on routes serving post-secondary institutions are back in service after the summer break, with more frequent peak hour service to UBC, SFU, BCIT and Capilano University.
- Increased NightBus service on routes leaving downtown Vancouver, which provides customers better late night service after SkyTrain ends for nightly maintenance.
- Late-night service increases between downtown Vancouver and UBC.
- Capilano Road shuttle service will provide service on either side of road closures during regional water main construction. Regular routes are detoured away from Capilano Road.
