BC Transit has extended the Fraser Valley Express bus route (66 FVX) into Burnaby. The 66 FVX will now travel to Lougheed Town Centre Station and bus exchange.

This changes provides a more direct connection between Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley.

Previously terminating at Carvolth Exchange in Langley; the Fraser Valley Express service now runs direct into Burnaby offering much more accessibility for TransLink users.

Lougheed Town Centre Station has access to the Millennium and Expo SkyTrain lines, as well as a major bus exchange.

Nearby pedestrian and cycling routes easily integrate public transit with other forms of active transportation.

Service has been adjusted to better serve customers. Two extra weekday and two additional Saturday trips are now on the 66 FVX schedule.

Connecting communities

From Lougheed Station, the extension now provides Fraser Valley-bound riders a seamless journey to the Abbotsford Centre arena and the University of the Fraser Valley’s Abbotsford Campus. Both destinations are a short walking distance from bus stops along the route.

Customers can venture further out to Chilliwack’s Cottonwood Centre mall or visit the city’s historic downtown area.

Also available along the route are summer seasonal bus transfers to popular Cultus Lake and year-round connections to Harrison Lake.

TransLink worked closely with BC Transit on the FVX extension to provide better connection for riders across the region.

“Better linking Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley through transit was prioritized in our Transport 2050 Strategy. This route now better connects our communities and makes transit a more attractive option for commuters traveling in this corridor. The Fraser Valley Express is a major step forward for transit users,” explains TransLink CEO, Kevin Quinn.
