Bus Rapid Transit is coming to Metro Vancouver!

TransLink is developing the region’s first Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) program to bring the benefits of fast, frequent, and reliable transit to more parts of the region.

BRT is a form of bus-based rapid transit that runs high-frequency service in dedicated lanes. This kind of service uses stations instead of bus stops to make waiting more comfortable and to make boarding more efficient.

There are 3 key features of a BRT system:

  1. Frequent service means less time spent waiting for your next ride.
  2. Fast and reliable service with dedicated lanes and transit signal priority.
  3. Stations to make waiting more comfortable and to support fast boarding.

We’re in the early stages of an ambitious plan to build up to nine BRT projects across the region, as outlined in Access for Everyone. King George Boulevard, Langley – Haney Place, and Metrotown – North Shore have been selected as the first three corridors to advance to further planning, engagement, and implementation.

At this stage, we want to hear from you about your priorities for a Bus Rapid Transit system in Metro Vancouver. Take the 2-mintute survey today and have your say. For more information, please visit the BRT program page.
