Your transit – Your say Proposed changes to the Central Fraser Valley Transit System

Nov 28, 2018
Transit System: Central Fraser Valley

Abbotsford – BC Transit and the City of Abbotsford are seeking public input on proposed service changes in the Central Fraser Valley Transit System.

The proposed service changes will help address core transit issues in Abbotsford including matching routing to ridership, and improving schedule reliability.  Over the past ten years, travel times for buses in Abbotsford have increased significantly due to an increase in population, passengers, congestion, and rail traffic. Since 2008 the number of passengers on Abbotsford’s road has increased by 23 per cent, growing to 2.37 million passenger rides per year.

The proposed changes include:

  • Realigning existing routes 1 Blueridge-McKee, 2 Bluejay-Huntingdon, and 3 Clearbrook-UFV into the new routes 1 Highstreet-UFV, 2 Highstreet-McMillan, 3 Clearbrook-Huntingdon, and 9 Downtown-McKee to better match demand
  • Maintaining service in the core areas of the city
  • Begin building a Rapid Transit Network between the University of the Fraser Valley and Highstreet Shopping Centre

To see the proposed routing and frequency, please visit BCTransit.com/Central-Fraser-Valley. Details are also available about proposed expansion in the coming years.

Feedback gathered through the engagement process will help BC Transit to build on Abbotsford’s 2016 Official Community Plan and the 2013 Abbotsford-Mission Transit Future Plan.
