With schools heading back for the fall semester sooner rather than later, our Fall Service Changes will reflect this annual ridership change.

Beginning September 5, there will be increased frequency to routes travelling to post-secondary institutions, new service on 208th Street in Langley, a new connection to the Tsawwassen Mills mall and more!

Take a look at just a few of the highlights:

  • Return of service to post-secondary institutions including BCIT, SFU, UBC and Capilano University, with increased capacity on the 49 to improve service to UBC on weekends.
  • Introducing new service to 208th Street in Langley and Highway 10 in Surrey, providing users with direct access to transit.
  • Another brand new service  will begin for passengers connecting to the new Tsawwassen malls on the 601 and faster, more direct service to the Tsawwassen Ferry Terminal on the 620.
  • Implement several recommendations as a result of the 2015 Transit Network Review to the 320, 341, 394, 501, 502, 531, 590, 595, and C63.

609 update: The 609  route adjustment to Tsawwassen Mills outlet mall will not take effect on September 5, 2016. Tsawwassen First Nation has confirmed that roadways will not be open. We will adjust routing to the mall when road and bus stop construction is complete.

Full Service Changes can be found online at translink.ca/servicechanges.

These changes are a part of our regular, seasonal service changes that occur four times each year in April, June, September and December to bring more service to more people with the resources available.

    Disappointing on the Night buses. The only night bus that runs overnight is N10 both directions and N19 to Surrey. I work from UBC Friday night/Saturday morning. The last N17 bus leaves after 2:30 am. We should have all the night buses run after midnight until 5:00 am on Weekdays and 6:00 am on weekends. Public transit needs to run 24/7/365.

    There are a number of changes to routes in and through Langley, but nothing about rerouting the 509 to go over the Port Mann along with the 555. I think that was recommended after the transit review last year – is there a plan for when that will be implemented?

    Kelly – I totally agree with you. Transit agencies always cite the cost of providing service overnight as an argument against doing it, yet it is the one segment that is totally abandoned in the provision of transit service. Lots of cities have extensive night buses. Vancouver is pretty decent (the only 24 hour services in Canada are Montreal and Toronto). Edmonton also runs some routes until 3:30am – same as Vancouver. But in my mind a city the size of Vancouver can support 24 hour services on key routes.

    Anyone know if buses like 188, etc will be increased in frequency once the Evergreen extension is live? AFAIK, most buses that go through PoCo are at most every half an hour. Would be nice to have more frequent service :)

    a fellow passenger on the C23 told me the 6 will continue down Davie to Yaletown Canadaline in the New Year . Is this true ?
