Just a thought on the B-Line

Maybe TransLink can consider having the 96 B-line buses service the whole corridor during rush hour.

This letter is in addition to G.F. Saqib’s letter of Aug. 28: “Pity the bus stops.”

Now that the 96 B-line Newton/Guildford is here, the days of overcrowded #321 buses are over. Or so I thought.

I notice most of the time when I wait for a bus at 8:30 a.m. at King George and 92 Avenue, I see a lot of B-Line buses passing by both ways with very few passengers on them (not even 30 per cent full, by the looks of it). The addition of the 96 B-line was suppose to ease crowding of the #321 bus. However, it seems to be not the case as the #321 buses still experience the same problem, especially during rush hour. This could be due to the fact that there was a reduction in the frequency of the #321 bus. So this only proves that riders are spread out on the whole 96 B-line route.

Maybe TransLink can consider having the 96 B-line buses service the whole corridor during rush hour. Likewise during these hours they can still lessen the #321 Newton/Surrey Central and maybe even run the White Rock route more. This might also work for the #320.

Just my suggestion to possibly make the system more efficient and rider friendly.
