Spring has sprung and that means service changes are coming on April 18.

This year, TransLink is reintroducing or adding service to ten routes that reach popular outdoor destinations, including some of our beautiful beaches, around the region. Changes on seven routes take effect in April, with three more seasonal routes receiving service increases in May.

As we ride into spring and get set for summer, here are some updates that will help make the great outdoors more accessible in a sustainable way — aboard transit!

Millennium Line Service Span Changes

Millennium Line Spring Service Changes

Millennium Line hours of operation in Burnaby are changing slightly with the opening of a new Operations and Maintenance Centre.

This means the repositioning trips at the start and end of each service day to and from Production Way–University Station will no longer be required. NightBus service on the N9 route has been increased along this corridor to supplement the small group of customers who have been travelling on these repositioning trips, ensuring riders have adequate late night and early morning travel options.

Transit is a green, cost-effective way to access the natural beauty Metro Vancouver has to offer. Parking can also be hard to find near many of these destinations. We’re pleased to provide sustainable travel options for our customers throughout the entire year.
