Final wave of bus route cancellations in effect for Wednesday

Nov 27 2019, 8:04 am

TransLink has announced what looks to be the final wave of bus cancellations for November’s transit strike.

On Wednesday, just after midnight, Unifor, the union representing bus and SeaBus employees, and Translink subsidiary Coast Mountain Bus Company (CMBC) reached a tentative deal.

The agreement was made just before 12:30 am and avoids a shutdown that would have crippled much of Metro Vancouver.

While there is no shutdown, TransLink says that service disruptions could take place in the morning, as it will likely take some time to ramp up CMBC’s operations and staffing levels back to normal after such short notice.

As of Wednesday morning, TransLink’s website reports that there are 131 trips that have been cancelled along 58 routes.
