All doors are better than one! All-door boarding comes to the 95 & 96 B-Lines

Calling all 95 B-Line SFU/Burrard Station and 96 B-Line Guildford/Newton Exchange users… this one’s for you!

Beginning January 1, 2018, when boarding the 95 B-Line or 96 B-Line you’ll be able to pick a door, any door when boarding the bus! That’s right, we’re piloting all-door boarding on two additional routes in the New Year.

We expect all-door boarding will not only make your trip faster, but help improve reliability and increase overall comfort by allowing passengers to enter the bus through any door. As this is a pilot program, we’re eager for you to try it out and let us know how it’s going! Stay tuned to the Buzzer blog in January for details on how you can share your all-door experience with us.

Remember, the bus is a fare-paid zone. Passengers paying with cash should line up for the front doors.

Got your Compass card topped up and ready to go? Get in line for the front, middle or back doors – just remember to tap in on the Compass readers at the door while boarding and then move to the back of the bus to ensure the maximum amount of space is left for everyone trying to board.

Still need some help? Watch DerrickThePlanner and DanielleThePlanner share all-door boarding in 4 simple steps!

Did you ride the 95 or 96 B-Line during the all-door boarding pilot? Let us know about your experience at!

    Will there be some sort of pavement markings at B-Line stops so people will know where to line up for the middle and rear doors?

    I’m wondering why is this a pilot when it is already done on the 99 B-line – surely you’ve learned from that what works?

    I was in San Francisco and they have all door boarding on all of their bus, trolley bus, street car, LRV and Cable Car routes.

    Well since POP (Proof Of Payment) is enforced across the transit network and all-door boarding is nothing new since the 99 B Line already use it at all stops, I think implementing it wouldn’t be much of a problem.

    All door boarding on ALL buses, please. This would help a lot on all routes. Especially when buses are full, all door boarding would help load the back of the bus to full capacity.
