TransLink in Vancouver, BC is preparing for the largest increase in bus service hours since 2010. The region-wide expansion includes 65,000 more service hours per year, benefiting customers as waits shorten and buses are less crowded.

This increase is exciting for TransLink and its passengers! http://newsmanager.commpartners.com/aptapt/issues/2017-04-21/2.html
