Transit in Surrey
We love public transit for its ability to build liveable, economically vibrant communities. That's why we're advocating for the next step, Rapid Transit Now.
Jump on SkyTrain from 1 of Surrey's 4 stations on the Expo Line, take a bus from 1 of 6 bus loops and along 33 conventional routes, or hop on a community shuttle along 1 of 10 routes in your area. If it's your first time, get TravelSmart's tips and resources for taking transit (Website. New window.) to have an easy commute.
Maps and schedules
At the bus stop now? Text your bus stop number to 33333 to get a listing of the next 6 buses arriving at that stop. There's a Stop Lookup tool, too. Or, track your bus' location right now at nb.translink.ca (Website. New window.).
To plan your route to and around Surrey, use Translink's Trip Planner Widget individual transit route maps and schedules (Website. New window.) or the Google Transit trip planner (Website. New window.).

Bus stops and shelters
Translink is responsible for bus stop locations, in consultation with Surrey, and the bus stop poles and signs.
Throughout Surrey, you'll see
- 1332 bus stops (948 accessible stops), the second highest percentage of accessible stops in the region.
- 210 bus shelters, fully funded through our Pattison advertising contract.
- 648 bus benches, fully funded through our Key Bench advertising contract.
We're planning to install 20 more bus shelters in 2012, and 20 more in 2013, to eventually reach 480 bus shelters in the city.
Bus stop amenities and accessibility, including benches, shelters and sidewalks, are the City's responsibility.
Smoking is prohibited in bus shelters under the Surrey Public Health Smoking Protection By-law, 2008, No. 16694 (PDF. New window.).
Surrey Rapid Transit Study
The Surrey Rapid Transit Study (Website. New window.) is looking at options for expanding rapid transit south of the Fraser River. TransLink and the Province of BC are funding and leading this study, with participation from the City of Surrey, City of Langley, and Metro Vancouver.
All services in Surrey are provided by TransLink through 2 wholly owned subsidiaries, Coast Mountain Bus Company (CMBC) and British Columbia Rapid Transit Company (BCRTC). But, the City of Surrey shares responsibility with Tranlink for passenger facilities and pathways to access transit.
