We continue to salt and sand bus loops and SkyTrain stations, but please use caution in these areas and remember to dress warmly in anticipation of potential delays.

Expect extra crowding on some routes To provide improved traction, many articulated buses have been switched with standard, 40 foot buses. This will mean some modified service, with increased crowding and the possibility of passups in some areas.

HandyDART is currently operating regular service.

Get involved today!

Get involved today!

Starting October 13, 2015 you’re invited to take part in an online survey and provide feedback on more than 85 proposed transit changes across Metro Vancouver. We’re asking for feedback now, so we can consider your input as we plan for the future. The survey is available until November 6, 2015.

The proposed changes aim to:

  • Integrate bus service to better connect customers to the Evergreen Extension
  • Decrease travel time on busy routes
  • Extend service to areas with high commuter demand
  • Take advantage of road and infrastructure changes
  • Make our system more efficient
  • Deliver on our plans

Check out all the details on specific proposals today!

For all our savvy followers who participated in previous consultations you might recognize some of these proposed changes from the Downtown Bus Service Review, Northeast Sector Area Transit Plan, North Shore Area Transit Plan or South of Fraser Area Transit Plan.

    Typo on West End package additional information: should read “If the Robson Square DOES NOT REMAIN open to transit, the 5 would
    travel via Burrard to Pender streets.”.
    Northeast trolley package: text does not mention truncation of No. 4 in downtown Vancouver as indicated in proposed map. Will
    trolley wire be installed along Renfrew north of Hastings for the No. 16?
    If it hasn’t been done so already, recommend Skytrain bus bridge stops along Central Blvd for Metrotown Station, depending on
    construction constraints; during one Skytrain shutdown I recall the bus loop was jammed with passengers waiting for bus bridge.

    Hi Robert – your comments on the 4, 16 and Metrotown are exactly the types of input we are inviting during this consultation. If you haven’t already, take the survey so your feedback is captured.

    The error you noted regarding the 5 has been revised, it now reads: The map above illustrates our recommendation if Robson Square remains open to transit. In this case the 5 would travel via Seymour and Richards streets. If Robson Square is closed to transit, the 5 would travel along Burrard Street.

    What is the planned implementation schedule for the changes?
