B-Line Proposal


We want to hear from you

A proposal for a B-Line service connecting West Vancouver with Lonsdale Quay and Phibbs Exchange has been developed. The District is reviewing the B-Line proposal and wants to engage with the community to get your input. Mayor and Council have been hearing the concerns of West Vancouver residents who want better transit service, and the concerns of small businesses and local residents regarding the potential impacts of the proposed B-Line.

About the proposed B-Line

A B-Line is faster and more frequent than regular bus routes and will move more people per day than current service. In order to ensure B-Line service can operate effectively, the proposal recommends shared bus lanes on Marine Drive, the construction of new left-turn bays, and other measures that will help cars and buses move more smoothly.

Consultation topics

The District is seeking feedback on the following topics:

– Shared bus lane

– Hours of operation

– Changes to on-street parking

– Western terminus location

– Park Royal– Marine Drive at 21st Street

– Marine Drive at 24th Street

    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.
