TransLink is making changes to ease overcrowding on routes at Simon Fraser University.

The following changes to SFU service will take effect Monday, Sept. 3:

• No. 143 Coquitlam Station/SFU will run every 12 minutes instead of every 15 minutes eastbound from 2-4 p.m. Monday to Friday

• No. 145 Production Way Station/SFU will also improve to every 12 minutes southbound from 4-9 p.m. Monday to Friday

• No. 135 Burrard Station/SFU will increase frequency to every 15 minutes on Saturdays from 9-11 p.m.

Demand for transit service is growing across the region, said TransLink CEO Ian Jarvis.

“So far we have been able to avoid a reduction in service hours by addressing costs and we are redirecting our existing service hours to where they are needed the most.”

Numerous changes are also coming to routes south of the Fraser River. For more information,  visit www.translink.ca/servicechanges.
