Hamilton Transit Centre opens in Richmond!

I Love Transit 2016

Today is an exciting day for TransLink, Coast Mountain Bus Company and transit users across the region!

The brand new Hamilton Transit Centre (HTC) is open and will start operations on September 5, 2016.

Transit centres are the hubs of transit systems. They keep buses on the roads to get passengers where they need to go.

Hamilton Transit Centre has capacity for 300 forty-foot buses, including up to 80 community shuttle buses and 150 Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) fuelled buses.

HTC will perform three functions: dispatch, fuel and wash service as well as maintenance for buses servicing the Richmond, New Westminster, Burnaby and Vancouver areas.

Watch the video above where Joe Peschisolido, Member of Parliament for StevestonRichmond East, the Hon. Peter Fassbender, Minister of Community, Sport and Cultural Development and Minister Responsible for TransLink, Al Richmond, UBCM president, TransLink CEO Kevin Desmond, and Councillor Harold Steves, Acting Mayor of Richmond celebrated the opening in Richmond today.

    Great for the community, my question is when is the bus service in the #1 Road corridor going to improve? It really doesn’t meet the needs of commuters, especially those that live between Francis and Westminster Highway!

    What routes will be serviced out of this garage? I assume this is why a ton of vehicles have been moved around lately

    Hi Raymond, buses are swept on a daily basis, mopped, windows cleaned to name a few on an as needed basis. All buses are scheduled to get a very detailed interior clean from top to bottom on the inside, every 3 months. Thanks!
