The east-west route connects Downtown Vancouver, North Burnaby, Port Moody, Coquitlam and Port Coquitlam.

The route begins at Port Coquitlam Station heading west along Wilson Avenue, Shaughnessy, west on Lougheed Highway to Coquitlam Station where Lougheed meets Barnett. It loops around Coquitlam Station and takes Mariner Way to get back onto Barnett and later Barnett/St. Johns Street. It follows Barnett as it makes it way north of the Burnaby Mountain Conservation Area and uses Inlet Drive to access Hastings Street. The route turns south on Hastings at Howe and then onto Dunsmuir to terminate at Burrard Station.

Eastbound trips take Melville Street, Thurlow northbound, West Pender, Burrard back onto Hastings Street. Trips access Coquitlam Station by Mariner Way/Johnston Street and Access Road and use Pinetree Way to get back onto Lougheed Highway.

As well, limited morning peak service is provided to Port Moody Station by St. Johns Street, Moody, Clarke and then back to Barnett Highway westbound.
