- Routes 34 and 35: Two new routes would offer service between the Mill Plain Transit Center and Fisher’s Landing Transit Center.
Route 34 would operate via 192nd Avenue and 34th Street and Route 35 would use 164th Avenue and Mill Plain Boulevard.
The proposed routes would operate at 30-minute intervals during peak periods, however, using an offset schedule, connections between the two transit centers could be made every 15 minutes.
- Route 37: Route 37, which primarily operates on Mill Plain, would be discontinued and replaced by The Vine.
- Route 41: C-Tran proposes extending Route 41 — which today operates between downtown Vancouver and Fisher’s Landing along Highway 14 — to Camas and Washougal. Buses would continue to stop at the Fisher’s Landing Transit Center.
The route is designed to operate as a limited stop trip offering faster service between east and west Clark County.
- Route 48: Route 48, which connects Hazel Dell and Ridgefield, would extend north to ilani. Morning and night schedules would be adjusted, better corresponding with rider demand.
The extension would lessen demand on The Current. The highest ridership origins and destinations on The Current are the Junction Park & Ride in Ridgefield and ilani.
- Route 60: C-Tran will propose schedule and pattern adjustments to Route 60, serving downtown Vancouver and Delta Park in Portland.
- Route 74: Route 74, which currently goes from the Vancouver Mall Transit Center to Northeast 152nd Avenue between Northeast Padden Parkway and Northeast Ward Road, would be extended to the Mill Plain Transit Center along Northeast 162nd and Southeast First Street.
The one-way loop on Northeast 162nd and Northeast Ward Road would no longer be served.
The proposed route fills a long-existing gap between 162nd and Fourth Plain.
- Route 92: The route currently connects the Fisher’s Landing Transit Center to Washougal. The proposal realigns the route to serve the Mill Plain Transit Center via 192nd Avenue.
