TransLink is inviting customers and neighbours to have their say on two proposed new bus routes serving North Vancouver, Vancouver and Burnaby. During this round of engagement, customers are invited to provide their feedback on:

  • Phibbs Exchange-Metrotown Express – A proposed limited-stop express service along Willingdon Avenue, connecting North Vancouver to SkyTrain and key destinations like Brentwood Station and BCIT.
  • River District – A proposed new service between Metrotown Station and the East Fraser Lands (River District), providing a direct connection to the Expo Line.

“We are always looking at our system and finding ways to improve,” says TransLink CEO Kevin Desmond. “In a region experiencing unprecedented ridership growth and expecting to grow by more than a million people in the next 30 years – the needs of our customers are changing rapidly. This is a great opportunity for us to better serve our customers while managing our resources more efficiently.”

The Transit Network Review proposes new services outlined in Phase Two of the 10-Year Vision and changes to existing routes to improve reliability and efficiency. The first round of engagement for the 2019 Transit Network Review occurred in April and consulted on ten proposed routes throughout the region. The report with the engagement findings from all 12 proposals will be released in the coming months.

Any changes to service from the Transit Network Review will begin as early as next year. Take the online survey until November 11 at
