Transit Service Changes

Four times a year (spring, summer, fall, and winter), TransLink updates its bus service schedules to reflect seasonal changes in customer demand and to optimize service. The following service changes come into effect on June 25, 2018 (unless indicated otherwise).

 

Permanent SkyTrain Changes

Starting June 25, Millennium Line trains will use different platforms at Lougheed Town Centre Station.

  • To board a Millennium Line train heading towards VCC-Clark Station, your train will stop at platform 3, which is on the north side of the station and closest to the mall.
  • To board a Millennium Line train heading towards Lafarge Lake-Douglas Station, your train will stop at platform 1, which is on the south side of the station and furthest from the mall.
  • Expo Line platforms will not change.

Customers should follow the station signage to ensure they are standing on the correct platform to catch a Millennium Line train once the change takes effect.

We're adding extra trips on the 15 route to get you to Queen Elizabeth Park during the summer season.

Congestion in Downtown Vancouver affects reliability on the 20 Victoria/Downtown. We're piloting a Downtown Layover Project to address this. A layover on Richards St at W Georgia St provides buses on the 20 route with buffer time to get back on schedule.

Customers should experience more predictable and consistent service as a result of the pilot. They may notice small changes to their schedule times, but service levels will remain the same.
