Construction on NE 18th Street may impact Route 177, C-VAN

In January 2017, the city of Vancouver began an improvement project on Northeast 18th Street between Four Seasons Lane and Northeast 136th Avenue. Construction is expected to occur primarily between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m on weekdays, but may be extended to weekends and as late as 8 p.m. The work may cause delays at times on Route 177. C-VAN may also need to use alternate routes due to construction activity.

Construction is expected to be complete in early 2018.

Snow and Ice Safety

During inclement weather, all C-TRAN routes will likely be delayed. Please plan ahead and remember these important safety tips before venturing out:

  • Wear extra warm clothing. Buses may be delayed or your snow route may require a longer walk than usual to reach the closest stop.
  • Wear or carry something reflective so your driver can see you. Pick up your green safety light from any C-TRAN Customer Service Office, located at Van Mall or Fisher's Landing transit centers.
  • Stay on the curb. Buses may slide before coming to a complete stop.
  • SafeStop—during inclement weather, passengers may request a stop anywhere along their route as safety allows.

We appreciate your patience!

Reminder: Have Current Passes Ready Before Riding

In recent months, a number of C-TRAN riders have attempted to board buses with outdated individual tickets and passes that are no longer valid.
