02.12.2020 :: GVITE Breakfast Meeting - Thursday, March 5, 2020
Presentation:

TransLink x City of Vancouver
RapidBus Launch on 41st Avenue Corridor

About the Presentation:

This presentation will examine how the City of Vancouver and TransLink delivered a new RapidBus route and service along 41st Avenue in Vancouver with significant new transit priority measures. Bus transit ridership on this route is already the second highest in the region, but subject to much delay and unreliability.  The route connects two rapid transit stations, several distinct neighbourhoods and UBC.
 
The presentation will cover the following areas: the partnership between the two organizations to deliver this significant change; building the technical case for transit priority; service planning considerations; a review of the bus priority measures (including over 13km of bus lanes) and how the design process occurred, including assessment of tradeoffs; the engagement strategy with the community, and; initial travel time savings (if available).
