VANCOUVER (NEWS1130) – If you’re planning to leave the car at home and transit to work this week, make sure to check TransLink’s new schedule before you head out.
TransLink’s budget hasn’t changed, so it’s having to shuffle things around explains spokesperson Drew Snider.
“[We're] boosting service in key parts for south of the Fraser [River] and also some service going up to Simon Fraser University,” notes Snider. “Because we’re not able to expand our services, we’ve had to make the most of what we’ve got.”
He says it’s all about making the system more efficient, adding routes with low ridership won’t run as often, but the ones which are in demand, you’ll see more frequently, especially during rush hour.
“Routes in Surrey, such as the 345 which goes from White Rock Centre to King George, or some of the routes that go out to Langley along the Fraser Highway, those get service boosted along the rush hours.”
Snider says it’s because areas like Surrey and Langley have seen a lot of growth in the last few years.
