In this post we’re exploring more of Coquitlam with routes in the southwest area of the city getting more service.
Down to business!
143 Burquitlam Station/SFU
This route connects SFU and Burquitlam Station with a high-capacity all-day service to SFU with articulated, 60′ buses.
This route will no longer serve Como Lake Avenue.
Why shorten the 143? Well, there is vastly different ridership demand on the two segments of the 143.
The section between Burquitlam Station and SFU has higher demand than the section along Como Lake to Coquitlam.
By separating this route, we can adjust service to demand much more easily!
151 Coquitlam Central Station/Burquitlam Station
This route will run seven days a week between Coquitlam Central Station and Burquitlam Station along Como Lake Avenue, picking up the local area removed from the 143 route.
153 Braid Station/Coquitlam Central Station
The 153 extends from Poirier Community Centre to Coquitlam Central Station via Mariner Way.
157 Lougheed Station/Burquitlam Station.
The 157 extends from Poirier Community Centre to Burquitlam Station via Foster Avenue and Cottonwood Avenue.
Stay tuned for the next Bus Route Buzz installment where we’ll examine some route name changes and brand new bus routes in Northeast Coquitlam and Port Coquitlam.
