Spring Service Changes are blooming around the region

The 19 Stanley Park bus arriving at Stanley Park

It’s that special time of the year! The days are getting longer, and the flower buds are slowly emerging from the soil. To help you make the most out of spring, TransLink is implementing our Spring Service Changes, which take effect on April 17,

This round of changes features seasonal increased service on 12 routes to popular outdoor destinations around the region as well as increases to 34 other bus routes to better serve our customers.

One neighbourhood seeing increased service is the vibrant and scenic River District where we’re launching a new, peak-only express bus to and from Marine Drive Station. The new 80 River District / Marine Drive Station route is expected to serve 400 to 500 customers each weekday. It complements existing routes 100 22nd St Station / Marpole Loop and 31 Metrotown Station / River District, which are also seeing increased service.
