9 Boundary/Alma TransLink Accessible bullet-b.png is a bus route operated by Coast Mountain Bus Company in Metro Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Route Details

This is a west-east route in Vancouver proving local service on Broadway connecting East Vancouver, Mount Pleasant, Fairview, Kitsilano, and West Point Grey, with limited service to the University of British Columbia. It is a Frequent Transit Network (FTN) route with service 15 minutes or better for 15 hours or more, seven days a week.

The route leaves its western terminus on W. Broadway & Alma Street and heads east along Broadway, becoming Lougheed Highway to access Boundary Loop where the route terminates. Westbound trips depart Boundary Loop heading west on Lougheed Highway becoming Broadway, south on Alma Street, west on W. 10th Avenue, north on Highbury Street, east on W. Broadway to its terminus.

A short-turn service runs between Granville Street and Commercial–Broadway Station. These trips end at Granville & Broadway by going via Fir Street and W. 10th Avenue to the western short-turn terminus. Eastbound short-turn trips go via Commercial Drive and N. Grandview Highway to the eastern short-turn terminus.

From September to May when UBC is in session, select peak hour trips are extended to UBC by continuing on W. 10th Avenue, becoming University Boulevard to arrive at UBC. Most UBC trips run the full route length to Boundary Loop.

Limited westbound trips terminate at Oak Street and Broadway and limited eastbound trips start from Oak Street and W. 10th Avenue and terminate at Commercial–Broadway Station or continue to Boundary Loop, with limited Sunday trips terminating at Broadway and Main instead of continuing to Boundary Loop.
