  1. I had the same experience. On a sunny day, both the 179 and 182 are overcrowded east of stop 58900 (East Rd @ Sunnyside Rd), and this was 2 years ago...
  2. ... and the September sheet had been extended all the way to Jan 5, 2020. I guess no December sheet this time?
  3. Okay, I lied... Final Final update for June: 101 - Weekday earlier start both directions, westbound service improve to every 20min (from 30min) 5-7am 104 - PM peak service increase to every 15min (from 20min) 2-3pm 123 - Westbound PM peak service increase to every 10min (from 12min) 5-7pm 340 - Sat service increase to every 20min (from 30min) 6-9am, 3-6pm 341 - Weekday southbound service increase to every 20min (from 30min) 5-7am 640 - Sat service increase to every 30min (from 60min) 6-8am, 7-11pm Initial post here
  4. 153 schedule was blanked out in June sheet, but then it revert back to the original schedule. It is currently blanked out in Sept sheet, so maybe the change is just delayed...? And yes, still the same 6-digit code Upon further inspection... the trips are still there. It just moved from being the last trips of the day to become the first trips of the next day. There will be 9 EB trips and 7 WB trips instead of 8 each: EB departures from Downtown: 4:15a, 2:05x, 2:25x, 2:45x, 3:05x, 3:45x EB departures from Lougheed: 4:20a, 5:12a, 2:00x, 2:30x, 3:02x, 3:22x, 3:42x, 4:02x, 4:42x (note: the first trip of the next day will depart before the last trip of previous day) WB departures from Coquitlam Central: 3:02a, 4:05a*, 4:35a*, 12:47x, 1:27x, 1:52x, 2:32x (* to Lougheed only... 3:02am is now the earliest trip system-wide?) So... if your daypass had expired on this bus, it may still work on the next bus
  5. Final update for June: 23, 15, 50 are seasonal changes 319 - Weekday service improve to 6-7min (from 7-8min) 6-8pm northbound, to every 8-9min (from 10min) 8-10pm northbound, to every 10min (from 12min) 10pm-12am both directions, to every 20min (from 30min) 12am to end of service both directions; Sat service improve to every 10min (from 12min) 6-10am, to every 10min (from 12min) 5-8pm; Sun service improve to every 12min (from 15min) 1-5pm, to every 10min (from 15min) 5-8pm 345 - Northbound service improve to every 20min (from 30min) 5-6am, 9-10am Maybe I should just write "improvements throughout the day" for 319... And some preview for Sept changes... full changes will be posted later when schedule is more or less finalized 246/249 split 502/503 service change with improvement for service to Aldergrove More improvements to 301 and 319 Running time changes to 239 (so North Shore B-Line will most likely not happen in Sept)
  6. If they want to start the North Shore B-Line in November, it probably wouldn't be so hard, compared to the Lougheed B-Line? Well, they are still playing with the route numbers with the B-Lines and other new routes and had not commit anything on to September sheet yet. The latest (third? fourth?) set of number they used are 94 for North Shore, 97 for Lougheed, and 245 for Cap U shuttle... not sure if I want to agree on those numbers... The only thing that seems to be somewhat committed for September is the 246 split (into 246 Highland/Vancouver and 249 Lonsdale Quay/Delbrook). But of course, they can still revert it like the 222 a few sheets back, or the 107 a couple years ago... The old method was posted here before, and soon after that TransLink fixed it. The new method is similar but less straightforward. I'm not sure if I want to posts and let them fix it again...
  7. ... and I just waited 45min for the 301 last Sunday... September sheet is now in database, no change made yet. It will run from Sept 2 to Nov 24 this year.
  8. June Service Change Trying to avoid including any seasonal/school changes here... 6 - Weekday, Sat, Sun service improve to every 10min (from 12/15min) 8-10pm; to every 12min (from 15min) 10-11pm 15 - TBD 25 - Sat service improve to every 10min (from 12min) 4-6pm 33 - Sat service improve to every 20min (from 30min) 8-10am 41 - Sat, Sun service improve to every 7-8/10min (from 12min) 5-7pm 43 - Weekday westbound service improve to every 15min (from 30min) 8-10pm, extend service hour to 10:30pm, additional morning westbound trips 50 - TBD 84 - Weekday, Sat eastbound service improve to every 20min (from 30min) 6-8pm 95 - Sun service improve to every 12min (from 15min) 3-8pm 99 - Weekday eastbound 9 trips added throughout the day 100 - Sat service improve to every 12min (from 15min) 7am-7pm 144 - Sat service improve to every 20min (from 30min) 3-8pm 153 - TBD 210 - Sat southbound service improve to every 20min (from 30min) 5-7pm 240 - Weekday service improve to every 20min (from 30min) 9-11pm 301 - Sun service improve to every 30min (from 60min) throughout the day; earlier start by 30min 319 - TBD 323 - Weekday service improve to every 15min (from 20-30min) 7-9pm; to every 20min (from 30min) 9-10pm; to every 30min (from 60min) 10-11pm; Sat service improve to every 15min (from 20min) 3-6pm; Sun service improve to every 15min (from 20min) 4-7pm; to every 20min (from 30min) 7-8pm 324 - Weekday northbound service improve to every 20min (from 30min) 6-7am; southbound service improve to every 15min (from 20min) 6-7pm 335 - Weekday eastbound service improve to 20min (from 30min) 7-8pm; Sat service improve to 20min (from 30min) 6-8pm 345 - TBD 745 - Removal of 2 weekday trips 746 - Removal of 2 weekday trips N19 - Sat eastbound service improve to every 15min (from 30min) 1-2am; Sun eastbound service every 30min starting 12:30am (from 1:30am start) N9 - Weekday, Sat, Sun all westbound short-turn to Lougheed cancelled; last downtown round-trip cancelled From the Maple Ridge/Pitt Meadows ATP and looking at the service change, I wonder if the 745/746 are getting conventional buses during peak hours. But then the 6:17/:19/:21 and 7:19/:20/:21 trips are still there....
  9. According to wiki, they were all retired
  10. Reading the actual council agenda, it does seems like the allocation is from the expansion hours of the 231 to the new express bus. It said nothing about the existing 231 service, so I guess the existing route will stay in place, and it just postpone the service expansion to phase 3?
  11. I guess the loss is at 3pm only. You see the overall loss of 1 trip here
  12. Mission council meeting last year or the year before. There was a plan to add more service (from saving of converting TrainBus to regular bus route), but seems like it's being put in the back burner now as it no longer in the agenda during the past 6-9 months at least. The main issue is the council wondered why they're paying the full cost to TransLink whereas they could only pay half of the cost if it was run by BC Transit and the province will subsidize the rest... but BCT's priority is to add more service to FVX and not interested in running Mission-Maple Ridge Link for now. There was no response when TransLink asked for additional weekday/weekend service or additional stop, until the cost is settled I guess...
  13. But no one is going to Braid... You'll need to have at least 1 transfer anyways. In fact, if your destination is anywhere along Millennium Line or Downtown, it will be actually faster taking the B-Line even for the one extra transfer. Let's face it, once the B-Line is implemented, both the B-Line and 701 is going to be pretty empty outside of peak hours (and I've been taking the 701 for at least 10 years). It would cost TransLink $0 by putting more people on those routes, rather than spending $$ to adding even more service that may not be faster.
  14. I think TransLink may want to get rid of the 791... probably just leave it there and let it die slowly. Between the new B-Line, FTN 701 service, and the shiny new Evergreen extension, why would they want people to take the 791 when there are already a huge excess of capacity in other routes? As for the 749 to Mission... I don't think that will happen since Mission is paying for the service. Unless... they don't want to pay for it anymore (which they discussed about letting BC Transit or a private charter taking over because they figured $130/hr is too expensive).
