Transit Network Review proposes new service areas and more!

Public engagement for the 2019 Transit Network Review is open from April 2 to 18.

We’re inviting customers and neighbours across the region to have their say on potential transportation changes as part of our 2019 Transit Network Review!

It’s all part of our efforts to deliver a better transit system so it serves more people, supports areas of high ridership, provides transit options in growing areas, and delivers a basic level of transit access across Metro Vancouver.

Among the proposals in this review:

  • Provide new service to three neighbourhoods: River District in Vancouver, East Fraser Heights, and 68th Ave Crosstown in Surrey
  • Increase service along Fraser Highway before the proposed rapid transit project is approved and implemented
  • Changes to the transit network to make certain routes more efficient and reliable, and provide better connections
  • Redesign NightBus routes to Richmond and YVR, and provide transit service to YVR at all times

It’s important you take part.

The 2017 Transit Network Review informed the new bus routes in the Silver Valley, Clayton Heights, and Morgan Creek communities that launched in September 2017, and the decision to extend the 159 to Coquitlam Central Station.

No final decisions have been made. We’re considering these changes and asking for feedback now, so we can implement changes as part of our quarterly transit service changes that happen every spring, summer, fall, and winter.

Have your say in the Transit Network Review and help shape transit in your community. Taking the survey from April 2–18 at translink.ca/networkreview.

Transit Network Review – Thank you for participating!

Open House in Port Coquitlam

More than 1,600 people responded to our latest survey regarding Transit Network Review!

ICYMI: From February 14 to March 6, we asked the public to tell us what they think about proposed new bus routes and changes to the transit network in the Silver Valley, Clayton Heights and Morgan Creek communities as well as Port Coquitlam–South Coquitlam.

Over the next few months, we’ll go through all of the online surveys and feedback and share in detail what we heard.

Stay tuned for the Transit Network Review Report in summer 2017!

Next steps

We’ll use the feedback we received to make recommendations on adjustments and implementation of the three new service areas and re-alignment of the 159/169 routes.

Depending on what we hear from the public, we expect that implementation of the proposed changes to the 159/169 would occur in summer 2017 and the new service areas in fall 2017.

The Transit Network Review is back and we want to hear from you!

Transit Network Review

The Transit Network Review is part of an ongoing process where TransLink takes a look at the transit network to identify service changes that will better meet the needs of customers and increase ridership.

With the 10-Year Vision in full swing, providing service improvements across the network in the coming months and years, we have an opportunity to deliver on more and better services for our riders, across Metro Vancouver.

The last review was in 2015 where we went out to the public for extensive consultation resulting in 12,000 completed surveys leading to 85 service changes.

The majority of these changes were implemented when the Evergreen Extension opened in December 2016.

Now, we’re back again looking at different service areas – Silver Valley, Clayton Heights, Morgan Creek communities, as well as Port Coquitlam-South Coquitlam.

Focus for the 2017 Review:

  • Delivering Service in new areas
    • Proposed transit network changes that will provide new service to areas that do not currently have service, or have limited service, including:
      • Proposed new 733 Bryant/Haney Place/Pt Haney Station
      • Proposed new 741 Anderson Creek/Haney Place/Pt Haney Station
      • Proposed new 372 Clayton Heights/Langley Centre
      • C53 Cranley/White Rock Centre
      • 354 White Rock South/ White Rock Centre/Bridgeport Station
  • Improving existing routes to better connect to key destinations
    • Develop options to improve the 159 and 169 routes.

Get involved!

You can get involved two ways: complete the online survey or attend one of our open houses.

The survey will run from February 14, 2017 until March 6, 2017.
