TransLink has announced that three new Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) corridors will be established in Metro Vancouver.

The three priority corridors were selected by the Mayors’ Council on Regional Transportation. They will provide high-frequency rapid transit services with dedicated bus lanes, transit signal priority and rail-like stations.

The corridors are:

  • King George Boulevard from Surrey Centre to White Rock
  • Langley Centre to Haney Place
  • Metrotown to North Shore

These corridors were selected due to their ridership potential, their ability to increase access to jobs, the feasibility of implementing new transit priority infrastructure, and early support from local governments.

For the Metrotown to Park Royal corridor, it will extend and upgrade the R2 RapidBus route and will advance rapid transit planning through the Burrard Inlet Rapid Transit Study.
