Here's a map I've been working on!
It's focused on my hometown of Tsawwassen and the surrounding Delta area, mostly changes and improvements I would like to see in the next 5-10 years. Some of the changes have been proposed in the SWATP, some are based on feedback I have seen around here on the forums, and some others are just things that I think would help improve the transit around here. Feedback is welcome, I'm not exactly a professional here so I'm sure there'll be criticism . I'm hoping to try make maps for Richmond and eventually other areas in the lower mainland (including my own opinions on the future of our rapid transit), but I'm pretty busy these days and those lines are a pain to draw...
One of the big things I'm taking into account is the upcoming development of the Tsawwassen First Nation. Obviously it's still a ways out and I can't exactly follow non-existent roads on the map, but you can see an approximation of the proposed plan here.
A brief overview (there's also descriptions on each line in the map):
601 Bridgeport Station / South Delta: Increase to FTN, with a mix of conventional and double decker buses. Remove trips to Stevetson Highway, Ladner Exchange and Boundary Bay (see below), but keep some trips to South Delta Exchange to interline with 603 and 604.
602 Bridgeport Station / Tsawwassen Heights: Add hourly trips off-peak. Renumber 601 Steveston Highway trips to 602 (as most drivers already tend to display anyways).
603 Bridgeport Station / South Delta Exchange / Beach Grove: Reroute with service in both directions through Beach Grove, and interline with 604 at 1st Avenue and English Bluff. Also replaces the C84 by running all day; off-peak trips run by community shuttles and do not go to Bridgeport Station. I'm not convinced whether or not this is a good idea, but personally I think it makes more sense to only need to know one route number that goes through a specific area rather than knowing the different peak/off-peak ones. Just my two cents, if anyone else wants to argue differently that's cool.
604 Bridgeport Station / South Delta Exchange / English Bluff: Reroute with service in both directions along 56th Street and 1st Avenue, and interline with 603 at 1st Avenue and English Bluff. Just like the 603, operates with shuttles to/from South Delta Exchange during off-peak hours.
605 Bridgeport Station / Boundary Bay: New peak-hour route that replaces 601 Boundary Bay trips. Goes into/out of Tsawwassen via 52nd Street instead of 56th Street, providing better service to people living in Imperial Village and Tsawwassen Springs.
606 Bridgeport Station / Ladner Exchange / South Ladner: Extend to Bridgeport Station, reroute with service in both directions along 44th and 45th Avenues, and interline with 608 at 47a Avenue and Delta Street. Replaces the C86 by running with shuttles to/from Ladner Exchange during off-peak hours.
608 Bridgeport Station / Ladner Exchange / North Ladner: Extend to Bridgeport Station, reroute with service in both directions through northern Ladner (too lazy to write out all the streets lol), and interline with 606 at 47a Avenue and Delta Street. Same as the 603/4/6 and replaces the C88 by running with shuttles.
610 Scottsdale Exchange / Ladner Village: Replacment for C76/310 - even though the latter is a fine new number, I think that since the majority of the route is in Delta or along the Delta/Surrey border it should be numbered in the 600s. Also extend from Ladner Exchange to Ladner Village, replacing service lost by removing the C86 and C88. Technically also a replacement for the C87, although it doesn't follow that routing - could probably have some morning/afternoon conventional school specials interlined with the 606 because of the high demand (I rode the morning conventional C87 once, it was surprisingly full... of highschoolers! My nightmare!).
611 Bridgeport Station / Scottsdale Exchange: Renumbered 311 to match the renumbered C76/310/610 (not exactly a high priority, so I'm fine if this never happens). Also add hourly trips off-peak.
620 Bridgeport Station / Tsawwassen Ferries: Increases in service as necessary to match ferry demand.
624 Scott Road Station / Tsawwassen Ferries: New route between Scott Road and the Tsawwassen ferry terminal via Highway 17a, Ladner Exchange, Highway 99 and Highway 17 (as opposed to staying on River Road between Ladner and Tilbury, as proposed in the SWATP). Initially run with conventional buses and lower frequency than the 620, but could be improved if needed.
630 Bridgeport Station / Tsawwassen First Nation: New peak-hour route connecting the new TFN development with Bridgeport. My original plan was to go via Highway 17/17a and access the new town centre from the south, but based on the plans I think it makes more sense to come in from north of the town centre, which is why I chose to send the route via Deltaport Way instead. Could maybe be extended further south eventually.
631 Ladner Exchange / Tsawwassen First Nation: New shuttle route connecting the new TFN development with Ladner. Provides all-day service to the northern part of the TFN area and new service in western Ladner, along with replacing service along Ladner Trunk lost by removing the C86 and C88.
632 Tsawwassen First Nation / Boundary Bay: A mix of the 609 and C89 as proposed in the SWATP, numbered to match the other TFN routes. Provides all-day service to the southern part of the TFN area along with the Tsawwassen Mills mall (as the 609 currently does).
640 Scott Road Station / Ladner Exchange: Route all trips via Tilbury.
Discontinued routes: 311, 609, C76/310, C84, C86, C87, C88, C89
