Transit Service Changes

Starting September 6, 2021

We make service changes every January, April, June, and September to reflect both seasonal changes in demand and to deliver more service to help customers get around the region. As residents of Metro Vancouver start reconnecting in new and familiar ways, we’re supporting B.C.’s restart plan with our Fall Service Changes.

Starting September 6, 2021, we’ll be putting more service where it’s needed most to reconnect our customers to the region.

We’re boosting service on bus, SeaBus, and West Coast Express.

  • Bringing back 10-minute SeaBus service during rush hours, and 15-minute service in the early morning

  • Adding back Train 4 to the West Coast Express

  • Adding service to 7 routes, including to 6 university routes

  • Bringing back service on 2 university routes

  • Reducing service on 5 routes

We’ll also be monitoring and adjusting service levels as needed to best serve our customers.
