Transit Service Changes


TransLink makes bus service changes every spring, summer, fall, and winter to reflect seasonal changes in demand and deliver permanent service improvements where customers need it most.

This year’s Spring Service Changes are introducing the new R2 RapidBus route along Marine Drive, delivering more frequent and reliable bus service to North Shore residents. We adjusted existing routes on the North Shore, so it can best integrate with the new RapidBus service.
