TransLink unveils new RapidBus service for Surrey and Delta

Metro Vancouver’s regional public transit authority says a new express bus service unveiled on Tuesday will get residents of Surrey and Delta around faster.

TransLink announced their latest RapidBus route at an event at Surrey’s Scott Road Station Bus Exchange.

Surrey Mayor Brenda Locke called the announcement of the R6 bus route along Scott Road, servicing Kwantlen University, an “important step for Surrey,” and said it would help make the city more affordable.

“The growth in our community has been extraordinary over the past decade,” Locke told reporters. “But certainly now transit is what is needed absolutely the most … not just for students in school.

“It’s all part of what is affordability for everything we do.”

Michael McDaniel, president of Coast Mountain Bus Company, said the R6 RapidBus will service more than 30,000 daily riders and alleviate what he described as “more overcrowding” than before the pandemic, on the existing routes in the area.
