Coast Mountain Bus Company, an operating subsidiary of TransLink, provides bus and SeaBus service in the Metro Vancouver area. The company commenced service on April 1, 1999 when the Vancouver Regional Transit System was split from BC Transit, thus creating CMBC.

Overview and History

The Coast Mountain Bus Company was formed on April 1, 1999 when the Greater Vancouver division of BC Transit was split from the rest of the BC Transit network. Before its current name, it was called "BusLink" for 9 months during transition into TransLink.

Coast Mountain Bus Company provides service in all 21 municipalities that make up Metro Vancouver (the former Greater Vancouver area). These are: Anmore, Belcarra, Bowen Island, Burnaby, Coquitlam, Delta, City of Langley, Township of Langley, Lions Bay, Maple Ridge, New Westminster, City of North Vancouver, District of North Vancouver, Pitt Meadows, Port Coquitlam, Port Moody, Richmond, Surrey, Vancouver, West Vancouver, and White Rock.

The company also operates the SeaBus, three passenger ferries that move passengers from Waterfront Station, across the Burrard Inlet, to Lonsdale Quay in North Vancouver.

Service is provided using a large fleet of conventional diesel, trolley, and community buses, as well as three passenger ferries that move passengers from Waterfront Station, across the Burrard Inlet, to Lonsdale Quay in North Vancouver.

Vancouver Trolley Crisis

Shortly after the delivery of the New Flyer E40LFRs, the company experienced a major bus shortage after a power steering malfunction affected several of the new units. As a result, 65 of the new trolleybuses were pulled out of service and several units from other garages were transferred to Vancouver Transit Centre. In addition, a handful that had been retired were sent to the garages that had donated units. 2 Orion Vs (606 & 608) from Central Fraser Valley Transit System, and 2 Orion Is (6715 & 6784) from Chilliwack Transit System were also brought over.

September 2009 Service Changes

In September 2009, with the introduction of the Canada Line in Richmond and Vancouver all peak-hour, express routes ("400-series") were canceled. This, in turn, allowed TransLink to reallocate these buses to other routes, increasing frequency on routes such as the 351 Crescent Beach and South Delta routes.

Fares

Coast Mountain Bus Company, as well as other TransLink operating subsidiaries operate under a fare-zone structure. With the exception of daily, monthly, or annual passes, fares are valid for any direction of travel up to 90 minutes, including connections. All fares must be valid while on a TransLink vehicle - those without a proper fare are subject to a $173 infraction.

Age categories for fares:

Category Eligibility
Adult
  • 14-64 years of age
Concession
  • Children 5-13 years of age
  • Youth 14-18 years of age with valid photo identification proving age
  • HandyCard holders
  • Seniors 65 years of age and older

Children under 5 years of age ride free when accompanied by an adult (maximum 4 children per adult). Different fares apply for West Coast Express.

Compass Card variants in orange (Concession) and light blue (adult)

Compass Card

Compass is the smart card system used on all TransLink services.

The Compass Card is a stored value smart card used for payment of public transport fares in the Greater Vancouver Regional District. Testing began in 2012 and starting summer 2015, university students enrolled in the U-Pass BC program, members of the Canadian National Institute of the Blind, West Coast Express riders and those on welfare programs have successfully transitioned into the Compass Card.

August 6, 2015 Announcement

On August 6, 2015, TransLink decided to start distributing Compass Cards to the general public. They also announced the temporary elimination the current zone fare structure. As of October 5, both adult and concession categories have been paying a single zone 90-minute fare for strictly bus service. [1] However, one can transfer from SkyTrain to bus using the same paper ticket, as long as the trip originated on SkyTrain. It was also announced that passengers will not need to tap out of the system when exiting a bus, except on the SeaBus, West Coast Express and SkyTrain.

Overview

Like all other tap-and-pay systems around the world, one must pay a deposit when obtaining their card.

Compass Card
with Deposit
Price
Adult and
Concession
$6.00

One can obtain a Compass Card through one of these methods.

  • Compass Vending Machines (Adult cards only)
  • 18 London Drugs locations [2]
  • Compass Customer Service Centre (Stadium-Chinatown Station, open 7:30am-5:00pm weekdays)
  • West Coast Express offices (Waterfront Station, open 6:45am-6:00pm weekdays)
  • Customer Service phone line
  • Compass website[3]
  • Traditional FareDealers (Initial deposit or cards preloaded with $10)

Upon purchasing the card, users will need to register their card at the website for the following benefits:

  • AutoLoad (for monthly pass users or Stored Value to top up when balance reaches below $5)
  • Balance protection & history for tax benefits

Stored Value

Metro Vancouver is divided into three zones.

Trips paid for using stored value have the same value as the current FareSavers. One can purchase the following using stored value.

  • DayPasses
  • Compass paper tickets (Useful when travelling with others who do not have the Compass Card)
  • Exit Tickets (If said user loses their ticket or has stayed on the SkyTrain network longer than 120 minutes)
  • AddFares

Regular Fares

Adult Concession
1 Zone $2.20 $1.80
2 Zone $3.25 $2.80
3 Zone $4.30 $3.80

Discount Fares

Adult Concession
1/2/3 Zones $2.20 $1.80

Regular Fares are in effect Monday to Friday until 6:30pm and Discount Fares are in effect Monday to Friday after 6:30pm and all day Saturday and Sunday/Holidays.

Monthly Passes

Despite the change to the fare structure on October 5, the value of all Monthly passes have not changed. However, one can still load these such products onto his or her card.

An update released on November 18, 2015 mentioned that the last month for people to buy a paper monthly pass is December. All monthly products transitioned to Compass Products as of January 2016.

Peak hours are normal weekdays from the start of service until 6:30pm.

Zones Adult Concession
1 $93.00 $53.00
2 $126.00 $53.00
3 $172.00 $53.00

DayPass

DayPasses are valid from the start of the service day to the end of the service day. Therefore, any transfer from a NightBus to a normal route on the following service day is not valid. Along with the paper FareSavers, the paper version of these such tickets have stopped selling at the end of January 2016. One can still load these products onto his or her Compass Card.

Zones Adult Concession
All $10.00 $7.75

University Pass

All students at participating institutions buy into the U-Pass BC program. The U-Pass fee is paid along with the student's tuition for a 4 month semester of $35 (previously $30) each month. As of September 2015, students can load their Compass Cards through the Compass Card Website [4]. All students must carry their student ID for the case of fare inspections. As of August 2013, the U-Pass program has successfully transitioned into the Compass Card.

Traditional Fare System

As of February 2016, vendors have stopped selling traditional products in favour of the Compass Card. Riders who wish to turn paper products into Compass products may do so at the offices at Stadium-Chinatown Station on weekdays from 7am-5pm.

Cash Fares

Peak hours are normal weekdays from the start of service until 6:30pm. All Compass fare gates are now closed, and any transfer from bus to SkyTrain or SeaBus is invalid. However, any transfer from SkyTrain or SeaBus to Bus will be valid. Thus, one is now unable to purchase a multi-zone ticket from a bus.

Passengers are encouraged to learn how to use the Compass Card instead in order to benefit from savings. Passengers are also warned not to use cash fares purchased from a bus as all gates are now closed [5]. As mentioned above, tickets purchased from a bus are not transferable to the SkyTrain (which defeats the purpose of multi-zone cash fares on buses).

Current fleet summary

As of 1996, all conventional buses (except trolleys) are numbered in the "permanent" numbering system, with the first letter in the fleet number denoting its garage. The first 2 numbers for buses built in 2012 or later denote the year the bus' batch was ordered. Though some inconsistencies arise once a bus is transferred, the prefix is usually fixed weeks after the bus is transferred (though this is not the case should the transfer be a temporary loan, for example the buses moved around during the C40LFR crisis of Winter 2016)

As of 2008, all units are equipped with a voice announcement system to aid those visually impaired and who are unfamiliar with the region. This also allows operators to drive without having to make announcements. GPS technology is used to detect a unit's location in relation to its next stop.
