78 bus trips along 34 routes cancelled on Tuesday due to transit strike

Nov 19 2019, 9:47 am

As of Tuesday morning, 78 bus trips along 34 different routes were cancelled due to the ongoing transit strike.

The cancellations also come after an announcement made by Unifor last Friday, which declared that an overtime ban for bus operators would come into effect. The union that represents nearly 5,000 Coast Mountain Bus Company (CMBC) employees said that service would be reduced by up to 10%.

TransLink warned customers that the job action would be difficult to predict and that a number of routes would have gaps in service and possible overcrowding.
