Transit Service Changes

TransLink makes bus service changes every April, June, September, and December to reflect seasonal changes in demand and deliver more permanent service where customers need it most.

For the first time ever, increases across bus, SeaBus, and SkyTrain are happening in a single service change.

 

The following service changes start on Sept. 3, 2019.

 

 

SeaBus

A third SeaBus will be put into service to provide 10-minute sailings during peak periods.

  • Weekdays
    • 7 a.m. to 9:30 a.m.
    • 3 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

SeaBus Schedule

 

SkyTrain

New SkyTrain cars will be added to increase capacity during peak periods:

  • 5% on Expo Line
  • 9% on Millennium Line

 

Bus

As part of Phase One of the 10-Year Vision, we're able to extend transit service hours and provide more frequent service. Our 2018 Transit Service Performance Review provided data on which bus routes are most in need of additional service.
