TransLink has announced that there will temporary changes to the SeaBus schedule starting next week.

Starting on Monday, February 3, 2020, peak sailings will take place every 15 minutes, as opposed to 10 minutes. During this time, crews will be completing maintenance and repairs on one of TransLink’s SeaBus vessels, the Burrard Otter II. 

Peak times include sailings between 7 to 10 am and 3 to 7 pm.
