In keeping with the Provincial Transit Plan and commitment to alternative transportation, the Port Mann Highway 1 project will provide for a Highway 1 RapidBus service, a joint initiative of the Province and TransLink, with service between Langley and Burnaby in less than 25 minutes. As well, the new bridge will be built to accommodate future light rail transit.
This will be the first time in over 20 years that transit has been available across the Port Mann Bridge. The RapidBus service between Coquitlam/Burnaby and Langley will be a viable transportation alternative to single-occupant vehicles for people using the Port Mann Bridge.
With few stops and using HOV lanes, the RapidBus will take less than 25 minutes, which will be just as fast or faster than travelling by car. Service will be based on three major transit hubs, including park and ride facilities:
- Langley – in the vicinity of 202 Street
- Surrey – in the vicinity of 160 Street
- Coquitlam/Burnaby – at the Lougheed SkyTrain Station
In the Vancouver/Burnaby region you can connect to the following communities via the Lougheed SkyTrain Station:
- New Westminster
- North Vancouver

Additionally, the Vancouver/Burnaby region will benefit from new HOV ramps at Grandview Highway and HOV lanes at Willingdon Avenue.
