What is the plan for the Northeast Sector?

What is the plan for the Northeast Sector?

NES ATP

After three phases of planning work and public consultation, we have a plan, a guide if you will, for investment in transit services and infrastructure in the Northeast sector, including Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, Port Moody, Anmore and Belcarra. Thank you to everyone who got engaged in the process, both online and in-person!

The Vision:

By 2045, residents regard transit in the Northeast Sector as convenient, comfortable, and easy to use. As a result, transit in the Northeast Sector is well-used, helping to promote healthy people and communities, a healthy economy and a healthy environment.

The Northeast Sector Area Transit Plan outlines a long-term vision for transit in that part of Metro Vancouver, along with recommended investments and service changes needed over the next 10 years to help begin achieving the vision. These include:

  • More direct and simple routes and schedules
  • New service to growing areas that currently have limited or no transit service
  • More frequent bus service during busy times between key destinations, like SkyTrain stations and local centres

We’ll work to implement the recommended changes as resources become available. Some recommended changes may be implemented by reallocating existing buses and resources, while others may require new funding.

The public can expect more opportunities for consultation before all recommended changes are finalized and implemented.

For all the details on how we got here and the specific recommendations in the Northeast Sector Area Transit Plan, see our website.
