Fall Service Changes 2018: the first SWATP improvements arrive

Fall Service Changes 2018: the first SWATP improvements arrive

We’ve been working closely with our partners in Richmond, Delta and the Tsawwassen First Nation to ensure we deliver on the changes you asked for.

You asked, we listened! Our Fall Service Changes adds 100 more trips every day and 6,000 more spaces for our customers across Metro Vancouver — made possible through new 10-Year Vision investments.

As part of this, we’re thrilled to be implementing the first improvements from the Southwest Area Transport Plan, which was finalized in July. The plan established a blueprint for the transit and transportation needs in Richmond, South Delta, the Tsawwassen First Nation and important connections to North Delta.

Starting on Sept. 3, we’re splitting the 401 and 410, both into two routes to improve speed and reliability. We’re also extending service to new areas: Port Royal and the Blundell Road Industrial Area!

401 Richmond-Brighouse Station/One Road and 408 Richmond-Brighouse/Ironwood/Riverport

The 401 will now serve the route between Steveston and Richmond–Brighouse Station via One Road, and the new 408 will serve the route between Richmond–Brighouse Station, Ironwood and Riverport.

The 401 and 408 routes starting on Sept. 3, 2018

406 Richmond-Brighouse Station/Steveston and 410 Richmond-Brighouse Station/22nd Street Station

The 410 will now operate between 22nd Street Station and Richmond–Brighouse Station, while the new 406 serves the route between Steveston and Richmond–Brighouse Station.

The 406 and 410 routes starting on Sept. 3, 2018

104 Annacis Island/22nd Street Station

We’re extending the 104 to Port Royal on weekday evenings and weekends to serve the growing residential community.

New 104 route starting on Sept. 3, 2018

418 (formerly C98) Richmond-Brighouse Station/Kingswood

The C98 is now the 418 and will travel all the way to Blundell Road and Zylmans Way to provide service to the Blundell Road industrial area.

The new 418 starting on Sept. 3, 2018

These improvements are just the beginning! The SWATP will help TransLink pinpoint investments over the next decade to make it easier for people and goods to get around these communities, whether you walk, cycle, drive or take transit.
