TransLink promises addition of service along busy 208 Street corridor, effective Sept. 5

Effective Sept. 5, permanent changes are coming to Langley’s busiest bus routes, including the addition of bus service along 208 Street in Willoughby.

According to TransLink’s website, the 501 and 590 have merged into a single route between Surrey Central and Langley Centre.

The new service will travel along 208 Street every 30 minutes. Bus service will continue on 200 Street in the merger.

The 208 Street corridor has seen a population explosion and offered almost no bus service prior to this change.

Six early morning trips will continue for customers travelling between Brookswood and Langley Centre.

“We will monitor performance and make adjustments to 501/590 routes as necessary based on how well they are used,” read a statement from TransLink.

The 502 Surrey Central Station/Langley Centre now ends at Langley Centre, and service to Brookswood will be discontinued.

Brookswood residents can take the 531, in addition to the C63 service to Langley Centre, to travel to and from Langley Centre. They will temporarily maintain early morning 590 trips from Brookswood to Langley Centre with changes coming in December.

The 531 Willowbrook/White Rock Centre will better serve Langley Centre via 64 and 56 Avenues.
