New bus loop opens at Richmond–Brighouse Station

New bus loop opens at Richmond–Brighouse Station

A new bus loop is now open at Richmond–Brighouse Station to ease traffic on Number 3 Road, provide customers more space, and allow for future bus service expansion in Richmond. The new loop serves five bus routes in addition to the N10 NightBus.

The new loop includes:

  • Spacious waiting areas with large bus shelters to improve comfort
  • Enhanced lighting to improve safety
  • New crosswalks for ease of access between the new loop and Richmond Centre
  • A sheltered HandyDART pick-up location
  • New bike lockers to make cycling to and from transit an easier choice
  • An acoustic wall to mitigate bus-related light and noise impacts for adjacent residences
  • Enhanced pedestrian connections

The on-street bus exchange served nearly 12,000 customers on an average weekday last year and is an important transfer point for bus customers connecting with Canada Line. The new bus loop will move the loading areas for five routes and the N10 NightBus off Number 3 Road, which will improve traffic flow and provide a more spacious and convenient transfer point for customers.

The routes moving into the loop include:

  • Route 402 (Brighouse Station / Two Road)
  • Route 404 (Brighouse Station / Four Road)
  • Route 406 (Brighouse Station / Steveston)
  • Route 408 (Brighouse Station / Ironwood / Riverport)
  • Route 414 (Brighouse Station / Richmond Oval)
  • The N10 NightBus (Richmond / Downtown)

The $8.5 million investment for the project was paid for through the Public Transit Infrastructure Fund (PTIF), with an additional $2 million contribution by the City of Richmond for the loop’s design. PTIF is funded by the Government of Canada, the Government of British Columbia (33 per cent), and TransLink (17 per cent).
