We continue to salt and sand bus loops and SkyTrain stations, but please use caution in these areas and remember to dress warmly in anticipation of potential delays.

Expect extra crowding on some routes To provide improved traction, many articulated buses may be switched with standard, 40 foot buses. This will mean some modified service, with increased crowding and the possibility of passups in some areas.

HandyDART is currently operating regular service, but is experiencing delays in the Tri-City and Vancouver areas.

Expo and Millennium Lines are running consistently, but with reduced frequency due to the need to have staff on each train to watch for weather-related problems on the tracks. Please be prepared to wait longer on the platform between trains.

Regional Cycling Strategy

TransLink's long-term transportation strategy, Transport 2040, sets goals for the kind of transportation future we want - a system that's safe, fosters economic growth and lowers GHG emissions. Within the next 30 years, one of the goals is that most trips in Metro Vancouver will be made by transit, walking and cycling.

Cycling for Everyone - A Regional Cycling Strategy for Metro Vancouver provides guidance on how cycling can contribute to realizing the goals of Transport 2040. The Strategy is intended to provide a common framework for action by TransLink, municipalities and other partners.

Prior to releasing the Strategy, TransLink completed a number of background studies and held a series of workshops with over 100 stakeholders. The input received formed the basis for the development of the Strategy.

As a region, we have made great improvements to the bicycle-friendliness of our communities. However, we have a long way to go to achieve the ambitious vision and goals set out in the Regional Cycling Strategy. Moving forward, TransLink will use the Strategy as a foundation to inform our capital planning process. Likewise, we encourage all of our partners to view this document as a consistent regional foundation upon which to build their plans. Together, we can help make our common vision of "Cycling for Everyone" a reality.
