If you’ve taken issue with TransLink during your daily commute, you’re not alone.

The transit authority released its top 10 bus routes for rider complaints last year.

Likely not a surprise to those who ride it, Route 319 between Surrey and Delta at Scott Road Station and the Newton Exchange received the highest number of complaints. Coming in second was Route 116 between Edmonds Station and Metrotown Station in Burnaby.

Most of the nearly 30,000 complaints related to overcrowding, the schedule, and the driver’s behaviour. TransLink received 2,600 complaints more than last year – up 10 per cent.

Meanwhile, staff said ridership on buses went up by seven per cent.
