No bus service for event at Bell Performing Arts Centre?

    I was shocked to find out that the last bus for service 364 at Bell Performing Arts Centre (64 Ave & 144 St, Surrey) is at 9:10pm. The same goes for service 341.

    Bus 364
    Stop 61177 - EB 64 AV AT 142 ST - 9:10pm

    So after 9:30pm for an event at Bell Performing Arts Centre, how am I suppose to go home?

    Why is there no transit for the at Bell Performing Arts Centre after 9:30pm?

    Should have listened to Mufasa...


    On a more serious note, the 321 will take you to Surrey Central Station and from there you can take the Skytrain. Where is home for you?

    321 don't go to 64 Ave & 144 St, Surrey. 364 does and 364 service ends at 9:30pm.

    Me in Coquitlam.

    Translink is mean to people who live in Surrey, after 9:30pm certain parts of Surrey is inaccessible.

    The 321 has a stop on 60th Ave and King George Blvd. It's 1.7km away (15-25 minute walk) so it's not ideal, but it will get you home and it is somewhat walking distance.

    I agree though, Translink sucks if you're outside Vancouver. I think you should contact Translink and provide some feedback. They might consider extending service or adding a community shuttle on that route, particularly if there is something going on at that venue.

    Some one need to petition Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts to negotiate better service for transit from Translink

    Might be sooner than you think! From the February 2012 Translink Buzzer:

    An additional 40,000 service hours will be added in April, and by year’s end, 180,000 new service hours will be in place.

    More than half of these new hours will be allocated in the South of Fraser Area, including a new local service, the #531, connecting South Surrey/White Rock and Langley via 24th Avenue.

    Later in the year, a new B-Line service will be introduced on King George Boulevard/104th Avenue connecting Guildford, Surrey Central, Newton and White Rock Centre.

    The Frequent Transit Network made up of routes where transit runs at least every 15 minutes fromearly morning until mid-evening, seven days a week– will expand. New additions include the #19 Stanley Park/Metrotown, Lonsdale Avenue in North Vancouver, the 97 B-Line and the #145 SFU/Production Station.

    The 99 B-Line will see a significant increase in service during off-peak periods and on weekends. Two of the more heavily-used NightBus routes–the N19 Surrey Central and N24 Upper Lonsdale–will be expanded. Planning is underway for additional service to address overcrowding.

    SeaBus is also due to expand its services, and details on that expansion will be announced in the coming months.

    Upgrades to Main Street-Science World Station include a new elevator (on the east side), a detailed design consultation and construction will start. Planning and design is underway for upgrades at other stations across the network.

    Cyclists will see initiatives to make bicycling a more attractive form of transportation with the restoration of $6 million-a-year funding. Among the planned projects are upgrades to the BC Parkway, which follows the route of the Expo Line.

    In addition to projects under the Moving Forward plan, TransLink is also proceeding with many other initiatives.

    The preparatory work for the installation of faregates is nearing completion at some stations. As 2012 progresses, the gates themselves, with readers to enable the Compass card, will appear across the SkyTrain system. Preliminary testing of the card is expected to begin in late fall.

    In addition to providing a convenient means for customers to pre-pay their transit fares, Compass cards–which activate the faregates and card readers–will provide firm data to plan for greater efficiency in the transit system. The cards will also provide necessary information for a fare review.

    The OnTrack program, a program to upgrade the original Expo Line and its stations, will continue.

    Work on Scott Road Station, including the long-awaitedwest-side elevator, will be completed.

    That is great news. Keep them coming, Translink.
