I have been writing that transit service is being cut. This is an example of what people will be finding when they try to get around on Monday morning. The #480 service between Richmond and UBC will still run, but there will no longer be direct service from the operating centre at Shell Road and Steveston – nor Richmond Centre. All service starts at Brighouse Station. That means that buses will “deadhead” from the garage to Brighouse along the freeway. That will be a bit quicker so there will be some operating cost saving, but passengers will have to transfer – twice. Once at Richmond Centre (Brighouse) and then on to the Canada Line to board the 480 at Bridgeport. Two transfers means more delay and inconvenience. Of course a lot of the passengers will be students with UPasses, so they are reckoned as a captive market. But I wonder how many people will go back to driving, to avoid the inconvenience and uncertainty of two transfers. Overall trip time from my home to UBC was uncompetitive with direct bus service – and now has got much worse.
