The 49 bus connecting Metrotown, Langara and UBC is one of the fastest growing in Metro Vancouver. It  is the second busiest bus route behind the 99 B-Line and has the seventh most rider complaints.

The 49 is filled with Langara students and many have experienced pass ups and crowded buses.  The 49 increased service from 5 to 6 p.m.  on weekdays in September but  it is still isn’t enough.

In this video,  Joshua Rey explains why turning the 49 into an express bus route would help Langara students get to and from school easier.
