Bus Route Buzz – Winter Service Changes 2017/18: Burnaby & New Westminster

Bus Route Buzz

Bus Route Buzz [1]
Bus Route Buzz is our series each service change that takes a deep dive into what’s coming to your area. In this edition, we take a look at improvements in Burnaby and New Westminster. 

TransLink makes bus service changes every quarter (spring, summer, fall and winter), to reflect seasonal changes in demand and bring more service to where customers need it most. This winter, we’re improving bus service to reduce overcrowding and wait times, expand service hours, and increase reliability.

More than 29,000 annual service hours of bus service are being added as part of Winter Service Changes [2] that began on December 18, 2017 and January 1, 2018.
