The Northeast Sector Area Transit Plan identifies a long-term vision for service and infrastructure priorities for the municipalities of Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, Port Moody, Anmore, and Belcarra. The Plan will guide further investments and ensure coordination between transit and land use in the area.
The Maple Ridge–Pitt Meadows sub-region is addressed in its own Area Transport Plan.Read the Area Transit Plan
The Northeast Sector Area Transit Plan was developed through a three-phase planning process that occurred between 2013 and 2015.
By 2045, residents regard transit in the Northeast Sector as convenient, comfortable, and easy to use. As a result, transit in the Northeast Sector is well-used, helping to promote healthy people and communities, a healthy economy, and a healthy environment.
These are needed over the next 10 years to help achieve this vision:
More direct connections to destinations
Changes to the C40, 151, 152, 153, and 159 bus routes
More frequent bus service between key destinations
New all-day frequent service (Frequent Transit Network or FTN) between Port Coquitlam Centre and the SkyTrain at Coquitlam Central
New bus services to serve developing areas
New services in Burke Mountain, Dominion Triangle, Freemont Village, and connections to Surrey
Better integration of transit, walking and cycling
Improving access to local SkyTrain stations
The map on page 7 of the Phase 3 Summary Report shows the 19 recommended near-term priorities.
The Northeast Sector Area Transit Plan is a living document. Proposed priorities and transit service levels are regularly reviewed to ensure transportation planning continues to be coordinated with land use and growing transit demand.
We'll continue to provide more information on how we're progressing to meet the goals, objectives, and recommendations of the plan as we move forward.
