Feedback Form: Proposed B-Line Consultation

If you signed up for westvancouverITE before October 1, 2018, you'll need to create a new account as we moved to a new system.

Deadline to provide your feedback is Thursday, February 28 at 11:59 p.m.

As part of Phase One of the Mayors’ Council 10-Year Vision, a proposal for a new rapid B-Line service (Phibbs Exchange in North Vancouver to Lonsdale Quay to Dundarave in West Vancouver) has been developed to address regional and local needs, and to improve the speed, reliability and convenience of transit service across the North Shore.  

Many West Vancouver residents support the need for improved transit service. However, the District of West Vancouver’s Mayor and Council have received significant feedback from the community regarding this proposed B-Line, including concerns regarding implementation details, such as the shared bus lane, on-street parking loss and the proposed terminus location. As a result, the District is undertaking this engagement to determine whether the proposed B-Line should extend from Park Royal to Dundarave, and, if so, what changes might improve the proposal.

Please read the information materials available here prior to completing this feedback form. 

The information materials include details about the proposed B-Line, including the consultation topics and proposed options. 

You need to be signed in to take this survey.

TRANSIT SERVICE IN WEST VANCOUVER

Please share your level of agreement that faster, more frequent and reliable transit service for east-west travel on the North Shore is needed.
