TransLink's Fall bus service changes begin today

Dec 19 2017, 11:54 am

TransLink’s fall transit service changes begin on today, and riders can expect new services or increased trips, service that better matches demand and the return of service to routes travelling to post-secondary institutions.

Seasonal service changes occur four times each year in April, June, September and December to bring more service to more people with the resources available. For all the details, visit


  • To reduce overcrowding on the 135, 143, 319 and C92, new trips will be introduced to the schedule – this made possible through the shifting of service hours from routes with low customer demand.
  • Service with low customer demand in non-peak periods will also be adjusted to better reflect riders. Routes include: 209, 214, 236, C9, C43, C44, C50, C51, C52, C70 and C93. The service hours in the balance make adding new trips on overcrowded routes possible.
  • Service on the 4 and 7 trolley bus routes returns to Powell Street.
  • Buses to post-secondary schools and summer-only services return to regular routes.
