C-TRAN - "THE VINE"
In January 2017, the launch of The Vine implemented a modern, enhanced transit line along the Fourth Plain and Fort Vancouver Way corridors between downtown Vancouver and Vancouver Mall. The bus rapid transit system replaces C-TRAN’s Route 4 while greatly improving reliability, mobility, capacity and operations on C-TRAN’s highest ridership corridor.
The boarding platforms of The Vine were a departure from the traditional, reflected in a design that communicated a more modern vision of public transport. A stylized aesthetic composed of sprung vertical elements supporting a dynamic cantilevered roof all tied together by a branded marque, wayfinding elements, new traffic signal technology and community-inspired functional public art.
By leveraging our core manufacturing and installation service capabilities Rixir was able to stay ahead of this projects rapid construction schedule. Accomplished by pre-assembling components to ensure precise fit while utilizing custom fabrication in providing solutions to the client that bring outstanding value, minimize risk on site, and guarantee success.
One of the unique features of the project, was the construction of protective windscreens adorned with art that reflects the character and surroundings of each location. Watch the video to see the Rixir team install these functional art elements.
