In September 2021, C-TRAN broke ground on the second branch of The Vine: Mill Plain Boulevard. The Mill Plain BRT project will continue the success of The Vine on Fourth Plain, which began operating in 2017 as the region’s first bus rapid transit system.
Mill Plain is a unique corridor with its own identity. It’s C-TRAN’s second-highest transit ridership corridor, making it the logical next step for bus rapid transit in Clark County. But it’s also plagued by chronic and worsening auto congestion. The Mill Plain BRT project will improve transportation options on one of the Vancouver’s key corridors, improve travel times and continue moving Clark County into the future.
Bus rapid transit offers an array of features and options to make travel more efficient and reliable along a given corridor. C-TRAN will be working closely with residents, businesses and other stakeholders along the corridor to ensure that the project reflects the needs and character of the area it serves.
Construction on the Mill Plain project is underway. The Vine is scheduled to begin service on Mill Plain in 2023.
