Sunday morning TransLink announced "major service reductions" that you will find dramatically reduced SeaBus schedules Monday and Tuesday. However, later on Sunday afternoon, TranLink changed course and announced only a few cancellations for Monday.
"Cancellations of the SeaBus service for Monday and Tuesday announced earlier today will be not to go ahead. This means that the service will not work as scheduled this morning. The problem of staff shortages is behind the solution, "TranLink explains in a media statement.
The original announcement had that SeaBus was reduced to a 30-minute frequency in non-peak hours and 15-minutes in the morning, p. stormy hours, with a bus bridge in place to help commuters travel between Whiteford and Lonsdale Quay.
Now TransLink says SeaBus will be on a regular schedule minus just four cancellations on Monday:
- 7:20 am and 9am from Lonsdale Quay
- 7:35 pm and 9:15 pm from Waterfront
We apologize for any confusion it may cause. We will do our best to keep our customers informed, ”TranLink adds.
Talks broke up again late last week between Coastal Mountain Bus Company (FMCB) and Unifor, a union representing some 5,000 transit operators and maintenance workers, which resulted in Unifar using their promises to escalate their work.
On Friday, several bus routes suffered disruption throughout the Vancouver Metro during the day. The bus service remains likely to be reduced by about 10% across the Vancouver metro starting Monday.
Customers are advised to give themselves extra time to travel to their destination, as well as to check out the Transit Alerts page for service level updates.
