While it's not as bad as it could have been, Monday's SeaBus commute is going to be a little rougher this evening as TransLink has announced a fresh round of evening and nighttime sailing cancellations.

The following SeaBus sailings are now cancelled:

  • 4 p.m., 6 p.m., 7:32 p.m. and 8:47 p.m. sailings from Lonsdale Quay will be cancelled
  • 4:15 p.m., 6:15 p.m., 7:46 p.m., and 9:01 p.m. sailings from Waterfront will be cancelled.

Early Sunday, TransLink announced the SeaBus would face "major service cuts" due to the ongoing job action by Coast Mountain Bus Company employees represented by Unifor. However, later in the day they reversed course, noting that the anticipated staffing shortages had been addressed and that they would only be cancelling four sailings on Monday morning.

Talks broke down again late last week between Coast Mountain Bus Company (CMBC) and Unifor, the union representing about 5,000 transit operators and maintenance workers, resulting in Unifor making good on their promise to escalate their job action.

Today, several bus routes are experiencing disruptions across Metro Vancouver.

Customers are advised to give themselves extra time to travel to their destination, as well as check the Transit Alerts page for updates on service levels.
