16 29th Avenue Station/Arbutus TransLink Accessible bullet-b.png is a bus route operated by Coast Mountain Bus Company in Metro Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Route Details

This route provides east-west service to connect communities such as Marpole, Kerrisdale, Quilchena, Hastings-Sunrise and Renfrew Heights via Downtown.

The route leaves its western terminus on West 63rd Avenue at Granville taking 63rd Avenue, Adera to 64th Avenue and Angus Drive to access West Boulevard where Angus meets 61st Avenue. It takes West Boulevard/Arbutus Street north to turn onto 12th Avenue eastbound and then Granville Street to access Downtown via Granville Bridge. It exits the bridge routing by Granville northbound followed by Hastings eastbound, then Renfrew southbound, Boyd Diversion, Nootka Street and then 29th Avenue to reach its terminus.

Certain trips begin or end on Earles at Kingsway taking Earles, 29th Avenue to 29th Avenue Station and then the regular route. One of those trips on early weekday mornings short-turn at Hastings & Nanaimo becoming a 7 Nanaimo Station and returns as a 7 To Hastings to become a 16 29th Avenue Station.

Weekend, holiday/days preceding holidays and Friday evening service after 9pm in Downtown routes by Seymour Street northbound and Howe Street southbound when access to Granville Street is restricted to pedestrians only.

On weekdays when school is in session, Burnaby Transit Centre does a trip on the 16 Downtown departing from 63rd Avenue Loop, terminating at W. Hastings Street & Homer Street with no changes in routing.

In late August and early September during The Fair at the Pacific National Exhibition, Vancouver Transit Centre also does trips on the 16 PNE which run from 29th Avenue Station to Coliseum Loop at N. Renfrew Street & Dundas Street by continuing north on Renfrew Street instead of turning west onto Hastings Street. Southbound specials start from the loop and head south on Renfrew Street, left onto E 22nd Avenue, left onto Slocan Street, and again onto 29th Avenue to a bay set aside for the PNE specials.
