In 2020, a new service was added between the River District and Metrotown as follows:

In 2019, Translink outlined plans for a new bus link to serve the growing River District, which has since been approved. Their planning document stated,

River District is a growing mixed-use neighbourhood with no direct transit service. Routes 100 and 116
operate near River District, but require up to 1km of walking to reach the nearest stops, and Route 100 is
often overcrowded. Funding for service to River District is included in Phase 2 of the 10-Year Vision. We
are proposing to introduce a new limited-stop, peak-only service between River District and Marine Drive
Station on the Canada Line. This new service will allow River District residents access to the rapid transit
network and provide additional service for other customers along Marine Drive.
