Traffic and Transportation

Updated January 2017

Further to Phase 1 of TransLink Mayors’ Council Investment Plan and consistent with the District’s Strategic Transportation Plan, bus service improvements were implemented in April on the 250A Dundarave/Vancouver, 253 Caulfeid/Park Royal, 254 BritishProperties/Park Royal, and 255 Dundarave/Capilano University routes.

Effective June 24, more capacity was added to the busiest periods on the 257 Horseshoe Bay/Vancouver Express.

Starting in September, the 214 Blueridge/Phibbs Exchange/Vancouver, 227 Lynn Valley Centre/Phibbs Exchange, and C15 Indian River/Phibbs Exchange routes will be operated by West Vancouver Blue Bus to improve transit efficiency.

The District remains committed to partnering with TransLink and the other North Shore municipalities to deliver B-Line bus service from Dundarave to Phibbs Exchange by 2019.

The District is also working with the other North Shore municipalities and the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure to address congestion through improved resident response protocols on the Lions Gate Bridge, the Ironworkers Memorial Second Narrows Bridge, and the Upper Levels Highway.

Work continues on securing a funding agreement amongst senior governments to advance the western extension of the Low Level Road from the District of North Vancouver through Squamish Nation to West Vancouver, as an east-west bypass to the Lions Gate bridgehead on Marine Drive.

The District is completing the westernmost section of the Spirit Trail multi-use pathway in Horseshoe Bay from the Exit 0 highway offramp to Royal Avenue via Raleigh Street.
