Langley residents will soon have a new bus route to connect them from the Clayton Heights neighbourhood of Surrey to Routley, Gordon, Willowbrook and Langley City.
The proposed route, which will be serviced by a community shuttle, begins at Fraser Highway and 188 Street in Surrey, and will travel up 184 Street before heading east along 72 Avenue. It will then head south on 202B Street to 64 Avenue, and east to Glover Road, eventually ending at Langley Centre on Logan Avenue.
The bus will run every 30 minutes on weekdays from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m., Saturdays from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sundays/holidays from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Bus stop locations have yet to be determined.
According to TransLink, the 372 will provide more than 19,000 people with improved transit, with 2,000 people being given access to nearby transit service for the first time. It will also provide connections to the 502 (frequent service to Expo Line) and future Fraser Highway B-Line (set to open in 2019); future rapid transit on Fraser Highway; the 501 (to Carvolth Exchange) and the 595 (to the West Coast Express);12 other routes at Langley Centre; and four other routes at Carvolth.
There will be no changes to existing services once the 372 begins.
