TransLink has approved two major bus routes for North Shore residents and for those living in Vancouver’s East Fraser Lands (the River District), and Burnaby.
Beginning April 6, the new services will connect North Shore and River District residents directly to the SkyTrain at Metrotown Station.
Here are the details:
222 Willingdon Express—This new route provides an express service connecting Phibbs Exchange in North Vancouver to Metrotown in Burnaby via Willingdon Avenue.
This will be a limited-stop service with only six stops on the entire route.
It will serve key transit hubs such as Phibbs Exchange, the Kootenay Bus Loop, Brentwood Town Centre SkyTrain Station, BCIT, and Metrotown.
The demand for this route was identified as part of the Integrated North Shore Transportation Planning Project (INSTPP).
31 River District/Metrotown – This new service will operate between Metrotown Station and the River District.
This new route will serve the River District’s growing levels of residential and commercial development by providing a direct bus connection to SkyTrain.
