===November 2019 Strike===
 +
 +
Until November 2019, Coast Mountain Bus Company drivers (Unifor Local 111) and maintenance workers (Unifor Local 2200) had been on the job without a contract. Their previous contract had expired in March 2019. Insufficient break times, unsatisfactory working conditions, and insufficient wages were among the key issues presented by the unions to CMBC. On October 29, 2019, workers issued the 72-hour strike notice<ref>[https://globalnews.ca/video/6095563/transit-workers-issue-72-hour-strike-notice Transit workers issue 72-hour strike notice] globalnews.ca retrieved 12-05-2019</ref>. After talks broke off on the evening of October 31, the first steps of job action were activated. A maintenance overtime ban as well as an operator uniform ban resulted in multiple trip cancellations on Seabus and on the CMBC bus network <ref>[https://vancouversun.com/news/local-news/vancouvers-transit-strike-will-begin-with-uniform-and-overtime-ban-union Transit strike hitting SeaBus again this weekend] vancouversun.com retrieved 12-05-2019</ref>. Job action escalated on November 15th with a driver overtime ban on select days, which caused an increase in cancelled bus trips <ref>[https://vancouversun.com/news/local-news/metro-vancouver-bus-service-hit-by-driver-overtime-ban Metro Vancouver bus service hit by driver overtime ban] vancouversun.com retrieved 12-05-2019</ref>.
 +
 +
On the week of November 24th, the unions announced to further escalate job action by implementing a full cancellation of bus service between Wednesday, November 27th and Friday, November 29th. This prompted several institutions to implement and plan alternative methods to commuting during the full shutdown. However, on Tuesday November 26th, a last-minute deal was reached between CMBC and the two unions, thus averting the three-day strike<ref>[https://globalnews.ca/news/6221690/last-minute-transit-deal-metro-vancouver/ Last-minute deal averts Metro Vancouver transit system shutdown] globalnews.ca/ retrieved 12-05-2019</ref>. The deal, which addresses the key issues presented during the strike, was ratified on December 5, 2019<ref>[https://globalnews.ca/news/6261756/transit-strike-deal-vote/ Metro Vancouver transit workers approve new contract deal, officially ending job dispute] globalnews.ca/ retrieved 12-05-2019</ref>.

The B-Line service is a system of express bus routes using low-floor articulated buses. B-Line routes have bus rapid transit elements and run frequent service for most of the day, seven days a week. All B-Line routes as of January 1, 2018 feature all-door boarding at all stops.
+
RapidBus is a network of frequent bus routes with limited stops and transit priority and the route numbers are R-prefixed. The articulated buses are painted in a special green livery with RapidBus branding and stops are also identifiable by their green RapidBus branding, which also includes additional bus stop features such as next bus information, available both visually and audibly. Buses are also distinguishable by  the second destination sign next to the rearmost passenger door and seats with extra padding. All RapidBus routes have all-door boarding at all stops.
  
The first route, the [[Coast Mountain Bus Company route 99 'Commercial - Broadway Station / UBC (B-Line)'|99]], was introduced in September 1996 and went from the [[Translink UBC Exchange|University of British Columbia]] to [[TransLink SkyTrain Lougheed Town Centre Station|Lougheed Mall]] in Burnaby via [[TransLink Skytrain Commercial – Broadway Station|Broadway Station]] and [[TransLink SkyTrain Brentwood Town Centre Station|Brentwood Mall]] along Broadway and Lougheed Highway. B-Line routes were later introduced along other major corridors in the new millennium with the [[Coast Mountain Bus Company route 98 'Burrard Stn / Richmond Ctr (B-line)'|98 B-Line]] in September 2000 and the [[Coast Mountain Bus Company route 97 'Coquitlam Stn / Lougheed Stn (B-line)'|97 B-Line]] in September 2002.

+
The program was formally announced on July 23, 2019, as an improved B-Line service with limited stops, high frequency service aimed at replacing most of the existing B-Line service. The service launched on January 6, 2020 with four routes, two of them existing B-Line routes with upgrades. After RapidBus was launched, the 99 became the last B-Line route.
  
The 99 is a major arterial route connecting the [[Translink UBC Exchange|University of British Columbia]] and [[TransLink Skytrain Commercial – Broadway Station|Commercial–Broadway Station]] in Vancouver and is the busiest route in the system. There are plans to replace a portion of the route with SkyTrain service by extending the [[SkyTrain Millennium Line|Millennium Line]] to Arbutus Street. The 99 is the only B-Line route that will not be upgraded to RapidBus in 2020.
+
The features proposed included:
 
+

===[[File:TransLink B-Line bullet-a.png|20px|link=]] 99 B-Line===
 +
The [[Coast Mountain Bus Company route 99 'Commercial - Broadway Station / UBC (B-Line)'|99 B-Line]] is a frequent bus service with limited stops and major arterial route that travels along Broadway and 10th Avenue in Vancouver, connecting the [[Translink UBC Exchange|University of British Columbia]] and [[TransLink Skytrain Commercial – Broadway Station|Commercial–Broadway Station]]. It is the busiest route in the system and there are plans to replace a portion of the route with SkyTrain service by extending the [[SkyTrain Millennium Line|Millennium Line]] to Arbutus Street. The route was introduced in September 1996 and went to [[TransLink SkyTrain Lougheed Town Centre Station|Lougheed Mall]] in Burnaby via [[TransLink Skytrain Commercial – Broadway Station|Broadway Station]] and [[TransLink SkyTrain Brentwood Town Centre Station|Brentwood Mall]] along Broadway and Lougheed Highway.
 +
 +
The B-Line service expanded to other major corridors across the region, with the introduction of the [[Coast Mountain Bus Company route 98 'Burrard Stn / Richmond Ctr (B-line)'|98 B-Line]] in September 2000 and the [[Coast Mountain Bus Company route 97 'Coquitlam Stn / Lougheed Stn (B-line)'|97 B-Line]] in September 2002. Two more routes were added in the 2010s with the [[Coast Mountain Bus Company route 95 'SFU / Burrard Station (B-Line)'|95 B-Line]] and [[Coast Mountain Bus Company route 96 'Guildford / Newton Exchange (B-line)'|96 B-Line]]. The  routes had bus rapid transit elements and ran frequent service for most of the day, seven days a week. All B-Line routes as of January 1, 2018 featured all-door boarding at all stops. The expanded B-Line network was dissolved by early 2020 after routes were replaced with SkyTrain and RapidBus services, leaving the 99 as the sole surviving B-Line route.

===Community Shuttle===
 
===Community Shuttle===
[[File:Coast Mountain Bus Company Community Shuttle logo-a.png|170px|left|link=]] Community Shuttle is a minibus service offered by TransLink and operated by Coast Mountain Bus Company, with a select number of routes operated by a private contractor. Introduced in September 2000, the Community Shuttle was a cost-effective solution to providing bus service on routes that had low ridership and were expensive to operate. The Community Shuttle service maintains transit coverage while operating a smaller vehicle with lowered costs and serves as a method of traffic calming in quiet, residential areas. Initially introduced in the Burnaby Heights area, the Community Shuttle service has expanded to operate in every city in Metro Vancouver, both as a replacement for low performing routes and as new service in communities that lacked transit service.

Starting in 2019, the shuttles transitioned to their own cash fare system, with traditional paper transfers and manual fareboxes manufactured by TAG in lieu of the legacy Cubic dispensing fareboxes. Because of financial constraints and the discontinuation of the particular Cubic model used by TransLink, the fareboxes removed from shuttles are to be installed on incoming conventional buses.

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.

Vancouver Trolley Crisis

Shortly after the delivery of the New Flyer E40LFRs, the company experienced a major shortage after a power steering malfunction affected several of the new units. As a result, 65 units 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 from Central Fraser Valley Transit System, and 2 Orion Is from Chilliwack Transit System were also brought over.

September 2009 Service Changes

With the introduction of the Canada Line, most 400-series express routes were discontinued. This, in turn, allowed TransLink to reallocate various resources (units, service hours) to other routes, such as increasing frequency on routes like 351, 601, 401, and 410.

Declassification of the "C" route numbering system

The re-numbering of Community Shuttle "C-Style" route numbering began subtly in 2011 with route 337 being re-numbered from its old route number, the C74. Between 2011 and 2016, new Community Shuttle routes were implemented without the use of the C-numbering system, such as the 227 in 2013 and the short-lived 178 in the same month. A bulk of re-numberings took place during the December 2016 Service Changes [1] as a result of the Evergreen Extension bus integrations and the 2016 Transit Network Review for Downtown Vancouver - West End. All remaining C-numbered routes were renumbered during the September 2018 Service Changes, ending the use of the C-numbering system.[2]

Use of Renewable Natural Gas

On April 24, 2019, TransLink announced its entry into a partnership with FortisBC that will source Renewable Natural Gas to fuel CMBC's fleet of CNG-powered buses. This partnership made TransLink the first public transportation authority in Canada to use RNG. FortisBC will provide up to 500,000 gigajoules (GJs) of RNG to CMBC annually within five years on contract.[3]

November 2019 Strike

Until November 2019, Coast Mountain Bus Company drivers (Unifor Local 111) and maintenance workers (Unifor Local 2200) had been on the job without a contract. Their previous contract had expired in March 2019. Insufficient break times, unsatisfactory working conditions, and insufficient wages were among the key issues presented by the unions to CMBC. On October 29, 2019, workers issued the 72-hour strike notice[4]. After talks broke off on the evening of October 31, the first steps of job action were activated. A maintenance overtime ban as well as an operator uniform ban resulted in multiple trip cancellations on Seabus and on the CMBC bus network [5]. Job action escalated on November 15th with a driver overtime ban on select days, which caused an increase in cancelled bus trips [6].

On the week of November 24th, the unions announced to further escalate job action by implementing a full cancellation of bus service between Wednesday, November 27th and Friday, November 29th. This prompted several institutions to implement and plan alternative methods to commuting during the full shutdown. However, on Tuesday November 26th, a last-minute deal was reached between CMBC and the two unions, thus averting the three-day strike[7]. The deal, which addresses the key issues presented during the strike, was ratified on December 5, 2019[8].

Services

Coast Mountain Bus Company operates most bus routes across Metro Vancouver. West Vancouver operates its own municipal transit service and a select number of Community Shuttle routes are contracted out to First Transit.

Service is provided using a large fleet of conventional compressed natural gas, diesel, electric and hybrid buses, electric trolleybuses, and gasoline minibuses, in addition to a small fleet of passenger ferries.

Coast Mountain Bus Company's services are:

  • Regular transit service
  • Trolleybus service in the City of Vancouver (with one route extending to Burnaby)
  • Community Shuttle, a minibus service that connects areas that have a lower demand for buses
  • ExpressBus, a suburban express transit service
  • NightBus, a late-night bus service that runs after midnight up until early morning
  • RapidBus, a network of frequent bus lines with limited stops and stop amenities such as real-time information
  • SeaBus, a passenger ferry service
  • 99 B-Line, a limited-stop frequent bus service

TransLink RapidBus bullet-a.png RapidBus

RapidBus is a network of frequent bus routes with limited stops and transit priority and the route numbers are R-prefixed. The articulated buses are painted in a special green livery with RapidBus branding and stops are also identifiable by their green RapidBus branding, which also includes additional bus stop features such as next bus information, available both visually and audibly. Buses are also distinguishable by the second destination sign next to the rearmost passenger door and seats with extra padding. All RapidBus routes have all-door boarding at all stops.

There are four RapidBus routes in the system, with a fifth one, R2 Marine Dr, to be introduced in Spring 2020.

R1 King George Blvd

R3 Lougheed Hwy

R4 41st Ave

R5 Hastings St

The program was formally announced on July 23, 2019, as an improved B-Line service with limited stops, high frequency service aimed at replacing most of the existing B-Line service. The service launched on January 6, 2020 with four routes, two of them existing B-Line routes with upgrades. After RapidBus was launched, the 99 became the last B-Line route.

The features proposed included:

  • Shelters and benches at stops and tactile pads (where applicable)
  • Real-time information
  • Information panels at stops[10]
  • On-board line diagrams
  • Transit priority measures on streets
  • Custom exterior bus livery[11]
  • Updated seating

Long term vision for branding and features include:

  • Wifi
  • Custom shelters and stations
  • Dynamic on-board wayfinding

Proposed Future RapidBus Routes

Route numbers have yet to be determined for all proposed future RapidBus routes.

TransLink B-Line bullet-a.png 99 B-Line

The 99 B-Line is a frequent bus service with limited stops and major arterial route that travels along Broadway and 10th Avenue in Vancouver, connecting the University of British Columbia and Commercial–Broadway Station. It is the busiest route in the system and there are plans to replace a portion of the route with SkyTrain service by extending the Millennium Line to Arbutus Street. The route was introduced in September 1996 and went to Lougheed Mall in Burnaby via Broadway Station and Brentwood Mall along Broadway and Lougheed Highway.

The B-Line service expanded to other major corridors across the region, with the introduction of the 98 B-Line in September 2000 and the 97 B-Line in September 2002. Two more routes were added in the 2010s with the 95 B-Line and 96 B-Line. The routes had bus rapid transit elements and ran frequent service for most of the day, seven days a week. All B-Line routes as of January 1, 2018 featured all-door boarding at all stops. The expanded B-Line network was dissolved by early 2020 after routes were replaced with SkyTrain and RapidBus services, leaving the 99 as the sole surviving B-Line route.

The following is a list of former B-Line routes:

Community Shuttle

Coast Mountain Bus Company Community Shuttle logo-a.png

Community Shuttle is a minibus service offered by TransLink and operated by Coast Mountain Bus Company, with a select number of routes operated by a private contractor. Introduced in September 2000, the Community Shuttle was a cost-effective solution to providing bus service on routes that had low ridership and were expensive to operate. The Community Shuttle service maintains transit coverage while operating a smaller vehicle with lowered costs and serves as a method of traffic calming in quiet, residential areas. Initially introduced in the Burnaby Heights area, the Community Shuttle service has expanded to operate in every city in Metro Vancouver, both as a replacement for low performing routes and as new service in communities that lacked transit service. A select number of routes operate interchangeably with Community Shuttle minibuses and conventional buses depending on rider demand.

NightBus

Covering more ground than three SkyTrain lines, the NightBus service provides overnight coverage for all three SkyTrain lines and major corridors. NightBus routes meet in downtown Vancouver and operate about every 30 minutes or better, seven days a week.

NightBus routes are identifiable with the letter N in front of the route number. On maps and signage, they are marked with a dark shade of blue.

During the BC Transit era, the NightBus service was referred to as "Owl" routes, with route numbers and names remaining the same. The Owl term was used up until 2001, when Owl routes were cut due to a funding shortfall. In 2004, the Owl service resumed and was branded as NightBus.

In total, there are ten NightBus routes:

SeaBus

Main article: SeaBus

Introduced in 1977, the SeaBus is a passenger ferry service that connects Waterfront Station in Vancouver and Lonsdale Quay in North Vancouver across the Burrard Inlet with a crossing time of about 10 to 12 minutes. Service operates seven days a week and every 15 minutes for most of the day and every 30 in the early morning and late evening.

Current fleet summary

As of 1996, all conventional units (except trolleys and demonstration units) are numbered in the "permanent" numbering system, with the first letter in the fleet number denoting its garage. Though some inconsistencies arise during a transfer, the prefix is usually fixed within weeks after. However, the "T" prefix is not used to identify the garage it runs out of; it is instead used to identify vehicles that are used specifically for training purposes or, before 2014, HandyDART vehicles. Similarly, the "S" prefix was formerly used in conjunction with a three- or four-digit fleet number to identify Community Shuttle vehicles, regardless of garage.

Prior to 2012, the conventional numbering scheme was a continuation of the Vancouver Regional Transit System's. In 2012, the scheme was changed: the first two digits in a five-digit fleet number denote the order year and may not reflect the model year or actual manufacture year. For example, unit 12020 was manufactured in 2013 but is part of a 2012 order, while 18001 is a 2019 model ordered and manufactured in 2018. The 2012 numbering scheme was later applied to HandyDARTs and Community Shuttles in 2014 and 2016, respectively.

Demonstration units used in transit service are numbered in the "1000 series" starting from 1001.

*The S prefix was also used on pre-2016 Community Shuttle vehicles to denote "shuttle."

**The T prefix was also used on pre-2014 HandyDART vehicles.

As of 2008, all units are equipped with a voice announcement system to aid those visually impaired and 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.
