History

  • September 2000 - Service introduced as a peak hour service, with most trips running with articulated buses every 15–30 minutes[1]
  • October 2001 - Service frequency adjusted due to funding shortfall[2]
  • September 2002 - Some trips were revised to operate as non-accessible with MCI Classics, accessible trips were operated by New Flyer Industries D60 units
  • September 2003 - All trips revised to run with 40-foot buses, as articulated buses are reassigned to the 44. AM peak hour service increased from every 15 minutes to every 12 minutes
  • February 2003 - Service proposed to be upgraded to a B-Line and extend to BCIT, running during peak hours only with a planned implementation within 3-5 years[3]
  • July 2005 - Service proposed to be upgraded to a B-Line, to be numbered 91 with transit priority measures and improved passenger amenities. The proposal looked into B-Line service on 49th Avenue instead but was shelved due to lack of community destinations. An extension to BCIT and Brentwood was also explored[4]
  • September 2005 - AM peak hour service increased from every 15 minutes to every 12 minutes. Select trips revised to operate with articulated buses. Introduction of additional stops at the following locations to serve UBC Hospital:
    • NB 2100 Block on Wesbrook Mall
    • SB 2200 Block on Wesbrook Mall
  • December 2005 - Articulated bus service replaced with more frequent conventional 40-foot coaches[5] as resources are reallocated to the 98 B-Line, with PM peak hour service increased from every 15 minutes to every 12 minutes. Introduction of additional westbound trips running only when UBC was in session
  • Around 2006–2007 - The non-accessible trips are revised as accessible with the retirement of MCI Classic buses, but these trips were still operated by 40-foot buses
  • December 2008 - First eastbound trip revised to travel full route from UBC instead of starting at 41st & Crown
  • December 2009 - Morning trips at Joyce Station revised to start at Bay 5a, several meters south from Bay 5 where afternoon trips started
  • February 1–March 21, 2010 - Vancouver 2010 Olympic service: Service rerouted near UBC and rerouted off of Wesbrook Mall and 16th Avenue via NW Marine Drive, SW Marine Drive and Wesbrook Mall north of UBC Loop[6]
  • June 2016 - Select stops west of Granville Street removed to improve travel times and for consistency with the 480 service.[7] Stops removed at SW Marine & Wesbrook; 16th & SW Marine, East Mall; Wesbrook & 16th and stops introduced at 41st Avenue & Rupert Street
  • September 2016 - AM and PM trips starting at Joyce Station consolidated into one stop at Bay 5
