Some SeaBus facts:
The SeaBus terminals and administration buildings are 40 years old.
SeaBus trips carry about 16,000 passengers a day.
That equates to 43,290 crossings each year carrying over 6 million people!
Talk about wear and tear!
The envelopes of all three buildings – essentially the walls and roofs – including the roofs of the two terminals, are in poor condition and no longer working as designed.
So, naturally, these buildings need some upgrades and rehabilitation work to keep them safe and functioning for both riders and employees.
Don’t fret! SeaBus service will continue to operate as normal during construction and terminals will remain accessible, however customers can expect small detours when entering or exiting the terminals.
What work is being done
- The exterior metal cladding, roof, and windows on the north and south terminals will be replaced.
- Stucco siding and windows on the administration building in North Vancouver will also be replaced.
Work is expected to begin this spring and continue until mid-2018.
We thank you for their patience while we do this necessary maintenance work.
