We continue to salt and sand bus loops and SkyTrain stations, but please use caution in these areas and remember to dress warmly in anticipation of potential delays.

Expect extra crowding on some routes To provide improved traction, many articulated buses have been switched with standard, 40 foot buses. This will mean some modified service, with increased crowding and the possibility of passups in some areas.

HandyDART is currently operating regular service.

Bus Projects

There are a number of infrastructure and fleet projects underway to improve the quality and frequency of our bus service.

Many of these projects aim to support the transit expansion requirements described in TransLink's 2040 Plan, 10-Year Plan and Area Transit Plans.


Bus projects include:

  • Exchange upgrades to improve safety and comfort, and to prepare for service expansions.
  • Fleet improvements and expansion, which includes replacing 600 aging buses and adding over 300 new buses.
  • Other infrastructure improvements, such as trolley wire and pole replacement.

These are examples of the investments we are making to keep the network in a state of good repair and improve the customer experience. Some of these projects are highlighted below.
