Guest Post: Potential TransLink Bus Service Interruption Due to Strike Action, October 31, 2019

Hi GTT Participants, I share this with you on behalf of TransLink’s Access Transit Coordinator, Richard Marion with a particular emphasis on those who live in, or will soon visit the Lower Mainland area of BC.

 

Hello Community Organization Partners:

 

I’m hoping you can assist us with distributing the following information to your community networks and clients of your organization.

 

This note will provide necessary information in the event of a strike at Coast Mountain Bus Company. We will continue to send information as the situation changes.

 

If you require any further information, please contact Richard Marion at Richard.marion@translink.ca or 778-375-6864

 

Thank you for your assistance.

 

The union representing Coast Mountain Bus Company bus operators and maintenance trades has advised job action in the form of bus maintenance workers not doing overtime work and transit operators not wearing uniforms. This could mean reduction in some bus and SeaBus service as soon as 8 a.m. tomorrow.

 

Regardless of the job action, many of our services will be unaffected: SkyTrain, Canada Line, West Coast Express, HandyDART, West Vancouver Blue Bus and other contracted services will continue operating normally.

 

We will do everything possible to keep our customers informed, as soon as possible, on service disruptions.

 

To stay informed, customers can sign up for Transit Alerts (alerts.translink.ca) specific to their routes, follow @TransLink on Twitter and check translink.ca.

 

Customers should also plan for extra time to get to their destinations.
