Phase 2 of the Downtown Bus Service Review begins April 2

 

Downtown Bus Servivce Review

Join us at one of four open houses or complete the online questionnaire.

 

Since our last Buzzer post on the Review,  TransLink and City staff have worked together to develop and evaluate dozens of route alternatives that respond to the themes identified in Phase 1 and take into account the road closures being considered by the City of Vancouver that could affect which streets are available for transit use. Now we want to share the most promising design concepts and get your feedback!

To refresh your memory, our goal is to establish a shared vision for the future of the downtown local bus network. We asked for your input and heard a lot about how getting around downtown by bus could be improved. Service frequency, consistent and reliable routes, access to rapid-transit, and connections between downtown neighbourhoods were identified as four of the top ten themes.

Have your say and get involved!

Attend an open house or fill out the online questionnaire by April 21, 2014. Open Houses are taking place on:

  • Saturday, April 5 – 11 am to 2 pm – West End Community Centre
  • Wednesday, April 9 – 3 pm to 6 pm – Woodward’s Atrium
  • Thursday, April 10 – 3 pm to 6 pm – Roundhouse Community Centre – Great Hall
  • Saturday, April 12 – 11 am to 2 pm – Vancouver Public Library Central Branch – Atrium

All materials presented at the open houses are available on the TransLink website.

Do you take this bus? Then you should take our survey!

Do you travel regularly in Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, Port Moody, Anmore or Belcarra? Is so, we want to hear from you!

Be Part of the Plan!

We’ve started updating the Northeast Sector Area Transit Plan. The plan will identify a 30-year transit vision and transit priorities for the next 1-10 years for the area and is an opportunity for you to have your say on the future of transit in the Northeast Sector.

We’re in Phase 1 of the plan, trying to find out what the key issues and opportunities are for transit in the area. What do you think?

Take the survey

Tell us your thoughts by answering our online survey by 4 p.m. on Friday, June 14, 2013. Your input, along with financial and technical information, will help TransLink develop the plan, expected to be completed by fall 2014.

More to come

Stay tuned! There will be more opportunities for you to give your input on the future of transit in the Northeast Sector coming up in future phases.
