C-TRAN invites public to weigh in on service change concepts - 01/29/16
Vancouver, WA -- C-TRAN is asking for the public's help in developing a major service change that could affect numerous bus routes later this year, aiming to improve safety, efficiency and quality of service using a system-side approach.

C-TRAN has created a series of concepts to start the conversation. We've identified 11 routes for possible changes and drawn up four possible new routes. We're also considering dropping two others. Taken as a whole, the concepts would mean most of C-TRAN's current routing is retained --- just served differently. The goal is to match agency resources with existing demand while reaching new areas. Among the existing routes impacted are Routes 2, 3, 4, 7, 19, 25, 37, 38, 39, 44, 72, 78 and 80. C-TRAN is also preparing for the opening of The Vine, a bus rapid transit system now under construction, which is scheduled for completion in late 2016.

People are invited to take advantage of one or more of the following opportunities to discuss the service change concepts:

- February 4, 2016: Presentation to Fruit Valley Neighborhood Association, 7-8 p.m., Fruit Valley Community Center, 3200 Fruit Valley Road, Vancouver
(served by Route 25)
