Bus service operates throughout most the region under a private subsidiary known as Coast Mountain Bus Company. Service in West Vancouver and Lions Bay is contracted through West Vancouver Blue Bus as you can see in Vancouver bus map. All buses are wheelchair accessible and a large number carry bike racks, able to carry one or two wheelchairs and bicycles respectively. Unlike other North American cities which are in the process of phasing out trolleybus service, Vancouver is actively maintaining and upgrading its fleet. With recent purchases of 188 E40LFRs and 40 E60LFRs from New Flyer Industries, the trolley network will serve the downtown core with fully wheelchair accessible and bike friendly zero-emission buses. Certain diesel commuter buses which travel to the suburbs as RapidBus have bicycle racks, wheelchair lifts, and comfortable high back Greyhound-style seats. Frequency in Greater Vancouver ranges from every couple of minutes within downtown Vancouver to two to three trips a day in far flung suburbs such as Maple Ridge, Abbotsford, and Aldergrove.
