You may have heard, 80 new SkyTrain cars will be available for service in Metro Vancouver by 2020 (28 of which are arriving early!). Now, we’re excited to announce we’re preparing to roll out four new B-Line bus routes by the end of 2019!

As we mentioned yesterday, the Buzzer blog will be featuring the top 10 affected areas for this year’s Winter Service Changes and integration for the Evergreen Extension.
Today, we’re focusing on three routes; one is out, one is new and one has changed.
Let’s delve in!
This brand new B-Line provides a more reliable and direct service with limited stop along Hastings.
Here’s the route:
The new B-Line will stop at: Burrard Station, Granville Street (Waterfront Station), Cambie Street/Abbott Street, Main Street, Commercial Drive, Nanaimo Street, Renfrew Street, Kootenay Loop, Gilmore Avenue, Willingdon Avenue, Hythe Avenue, Holdom Avenue, Kensington Avenue, Duthie Avenue and SFU Transportation Centre.
160 Port Coquitlam Station/Kootenay Loop
The 160 will provide local service in Burnaby and end at Kootenay Loop. This route change was made in order to provide better reliability and overall service.
Riders can continue to take the 160 from the Tri-Cities and transfer to the 95 B-Line along Hastings, beginning at Duthie Ave.
Heading downtown? The Evergreen Extension will now provide a faster and more frequent connected between the Northeast Sector and Downtown.
Starting December 19, the 135 is discontinued.
Stay tuned for the next edition in our bus route where we look at some West End and Downtown routes.
