Points of Interest

History

  • April 2002 - Service introduced running every 20–30 minutes. Together with the 488, the two routes provided alternative service between Richmond and Downtown Vancouver and addressed complaints regarding the discontinuation of a one-seat-ride from parts of Richmond that had local routes extend to Vancouver prior to the introduction of the 98 B-Line.[1] Introduction of the service also resulted in the discontinuation of the peak-hour shuttle service running between Sexsmith Park & Ride and the Capstan Way 98 B-Line station
  • September 2006 - PM starting point revised from Nelson Street & Beatty Street to Beatty & Robson
  • December 2006 - Routing in both directions revised to use Granville Street Bridge instead of Cambie Street Bridge due to Canada Line construction. Trips used Broadway between Granville and Oak Street instead of between Cambie and Oak[2]
  • September 2009 - Service discontinued following the completion of the Canada Line[3]
