Transit Service Changes

Starting June 24, 2024

We implement service changes every January, April, June, and September to ensure service is provided where it’s needed most based on seasonal patterns and recent trends.

On this page


    Starting June 24, 2024, TransLink is offering seasonal summer services on 11 routes to improve access and convenience to popular seasonal destinations.

    TransLink is bringing back the 900 Bike Bus for summer 2024 to better connect cyclists with ferry sailings to Swartz Bay, Duke Point, and the Southern Gulf Islands.

    • This year, we’ve added another interior rack on each Bike Bus, increasing the capacity for bikes on each bus from nine to 10.

    • The Bike Bus will run on Fridays, weekends, and holidays from June 28 to September 2 (Labour Day), 2024 from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m.

    We will continue monitoring ridership levels across the region to ensure service is provided where it is needed most as more and more people choose transit.
