Bus Route Buzz is our series that takes a deep dive into quarterly service changes. This edition takes a look at improvements South of the Fraser.
Quarterly bus service changes take place each spring, summer, fall and winter, to reflect seasonal changes in demand and to bring more service to the areas customers need it most. This winter, bus service is improving to reduce overcrowding and wait times, expand service hours, and increase reliability.
