407 Bridgeport/Gilbert is a bus route operated by Coast Mountain Bus Company in Metro Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
This is a north-south route in Richmond connecting Steveston, Richmond Centre, and various industrial areas along Bridgeport Road with South Vancouver across the Knight Street Bridge.
The route begins at Chatham Street at 2nd Avenue northbound, takes Steveston Highway eastbound and then Gilbert Road northbound. It heads east on Gilbert at Westminster Highway then south on Three Road to turn onto Saba Road and Richmond–Brighouse Station. Using Buswell and Cook it travels to Garden City Road northbound, Capstan Way westwards, No. 3 Road northbound, Bridgeport Road to access Great Canadian Way and Bridgeport Station. The route does not terminate at Bridgeport Station. It makes its way back onto Bridgeport eastbound using the on-ramp loop to access Knight Street Bridge and terminate under the opposite end of the bridge at Marine at Knight.
Southbound trips use Garden City, Cook and then No. 3 Road to access Richmond–Brighouse Station and then continue towards Gilbert. Certain morning and afternoon trips exit Knight Street Bridge and use Bridgeport eastbound to take Viking Way, Vulcan Way and then No. 5 Road before returning to Bridgeport Road westbound. Southbound trips terminate at Chatham Street & 3rd Avenue and some trips at 2nd Avenue. Trips that terminate on Chatham & 2nd go south on No. 1 Road at Steveston Highway and west on Chatham, bypassing 4th Avenue.
During peak hours, trips in both directions go via Vulcan Way. Northbound trips turn off Bridgeport Road and onto No. 5 Road northbound, west on Vulcan Way, south on Viking Way, west on Bridgeport Road, and north on Knight Street where it continues the regular routing. Southbound trips exit Knight Street and head east on Bridgeport Road, north on Viking Way, west on Vulcan Way, south on No. 5 Road, and west on Bridgeport Road where it continues its regular routing. Stops on Bridgeport Road between No. 5 Road and Knight Street are omitted.
The last weekend/holiday trips departing from Knight & Marine terminate at Brighouse Station, while select trips (mostly midday trips) departing from Chatham at 2nd Avenue short turn at Brighouse Station.
A School Special trip in the afternoon starts at Cambie Road at Jacombs Road to service HJ Cambie Secondary School. Service is usually provided by a Nova Bus LFS Suburban or Orion V coach and operates as a 407 Brighouse Station and goes west along Cambie, north along No.5 Road, west along Bridgeport, and continues along the regular 407 routing.
