As part of this, we’re thrilled to be implementing the first improvements from the Southwest Area Transport Plan, which was finalized in July. The plan established a blueprint for the transit and transportation needs in Richmond, South Delta, the Tsawwassen First Nation and important connections to North Delta.
Starting on Sept. 3, we’re splitting the 401 and 410, both into two routes to improve speed and reliability. We’re also extending service to new areas: Port Royal and the Blundell Road Industrial Area! Read more »
We’re back again with Phase 2 of the Southwest Area Transport Plan (SWATP) and we still need your help and want your input!
Take the survey from May 23 until June 19 and have your say, your way on proposed changes for this area.
What exactly IS SWATP?
I’m so glad you asked!
SWATP is a review of this area that will focus on improving transit service and infrastructure while addressing cycling, walking, driving and goods movement.
The planning process looks at customer experience, current and projected land use and development, transportation and ridership data as well as feedback from the public, stakeholders and local governments.
What is the goal of SWATP?
Proposed changes in Phase 2 aim to:
Provide more reliable and convenient bus service.
Provide Frequent Transit Network (FTN) service along key corridors.
Improve bus service for growing communities and large areas of employment, including industrial areas.
Make NightBus more direct for service to Richmond City Centre and YVR Airport.
Identify regionally-significant corridors for cycling investment.
