The RapidBus program was developed as part of the Mayor's 10-year Vision to bring faster, more frequent, and reliable transit service in the Lower Mainland. The R3 specifically, is a new route that has been introduced and connects Coquitlam Station with Haney Place in Maple Ridge.

This presentation will provide an overview of the planning and implementation of the R3 RapidBus Route between Coquitlam Termini Skytrain Station and Haney Place Transit Exchange in Maple Ridge. Our presentation will walk you through the supporting policies, objectives, and operational challenges involved in implementing a new service, with infrastructure upgrades through multiple municipal and provincial jurisdictions.
