The Transit Network Review is back and we want to hear from you!

Transit Network Review

The Transit Network Review is part of an ongoing process where TransLink takes a look at the transit network to identify service changes that will better meet the needs of customers and increase ridership.

With the 10-Year Vision in full swing, providing service improvements across the network in the coming months and years, we have an opportunity to deliver on more and better services for our riders, across Metro Vancouver.

The last review was in 2015 where we went out to the public for extensive consultation resulting in 12,000 completed surveys leading to 85 service changes.

The majority of these changes were implemented when the Evergreen Extension opened in December 2016.

Now, we’re back again looking at different service areas – Silver Valley, Clayton Heights, Morgan Creek communities, as well as Port Coquitlam-South Coquitlam.

Focus for the 2017 Review:

  • Delivering Service in new areas
    • Proposed transit network changes that will provide new service to areas that do not currently have service, or have limited service, including:
      • Proposed new 733 Bryant/Haney Place/Pt Haney Station
      • Proposed new 741 Anderson Creek/Haney Place/Pt Haney Station
      • Proposed new 372 Clayton Heights/Langley Centre
      • C53 Cranley/White Rock Centre
      • 354 White Rock South/ White Rock Centre/Bridgeport Station
  • Improving existing routes to better connect to key destinations
    • Develop options to improve the 159 and 169 routes.

Get involved!

You can get involved two ways: complete the online survey or attend one of our open houses.

The survey will run from February 14, 2017 until March 6, 2017.

    It’s great to see some actual expansion in the bus-service coverage area again. I’ve been getting sick and tired – as has everyone at TransLink, I’m sure! – of seeing coverage areas decreasing under “service optimization” to address crowding in the core. I won’t really comment further on the specific route changes that are proposed, simply because I don’t live in any of the affected areas and thus can’t do so intelligently.

    Question, though: is there any sort of an actual plan at this point for the roll-out of increased service on existing routes? Or is it going to be something that CMBC figures out sheet-by-sheet, based on how many extra drivers they can manage to hire/train and how many old D40LFs/D60LFs they can keep running past their retirement dates?

    Hey there, I’m checking in on specifics for the added service and affected routes. As soon as I get the info, I’ll pass it your way :) Thanks!

    Update! Yes, there’s a plan that’s in the works and once finalized and approved, we will be sharing to the public and of course, right here on the Buzzer blog. I’ll keep everyone updated as I learn more. Thanks!

    I’ve been waiting for many years for increases to service in maple ridge. Especially east towards 280th or even 287th. 2 hour service frequency is not acceptable. Personally if it was possible I would work with central Fraser valley transit (BC Transit) to connect the service and get proper bus service through Silverdale, Ruskin and Whonnock. Connect those areas to mission and maple ridge. Those areas are growing and people are forced to drive

    Is there anything planned for people who live around the Cottonwood area?

    I just took transit after several years and was completely opt-out by the new system of fairs where bus and strain are separate!!!!!!!!!
    This is very discouraging in terms of getting people to use transit more instead of personal vehicles. Next time, I will take my car for sure.
    Whoever thought of this ridiculous money grab is not for-the-people nor are they for-the-environment.
