Whoo…whoo is heading back to their regular school or work schedule in September? TransLink’s transit services are adjusting with you!
Beginning September 1, you can expect new services and increased trips, services that better matches customer demand during non-peak periods and the return of frequency to routes travelling to post-secondary institutions.
- To reduce overcrowding on the 135, 143, 319 and C92, NEW trips will be introduced to the schedule – this is made possible through the shifting of service hours from routes with low customer demand.
- Services with low customer demand in non-peak periods will also be adjusted to better reflect ridership. Routes include, but are not limited to: 209, 214, 236, C9, C43, C44, C50, C51, C52, C70 and C93. The service hours in the balance make adding NEW trips on overcrowded routes possible.
- Service on the 4 and 7 trolley bus routes returns to Powell Street.
- Buses to post-secondary schools and summer-only services return to regular routes.
