Bus Service Detour Notice

Detour of 169 Northbound

Effective Monday January 30, 2017, all trips on the 169 Coquitlam Central Station will be routing via Lougheed Hwy (bypassing the Riverview site). This temporary northbound detour has been introduced in response to the demolition of an existing building and planned construction of a new building on Orchid Dr near Holly Dr.

Since Orchid Dr will be closed due to the construction, 169 Coquitlam Central Station buses will not be able exit the Riverview site via the traffic signal from Orchid Dr to Lougheed Hwy. This detour is anticipated to be in place until late 2019.
