NORTH SHORE B-LINE – NEW BUS LANES ON MARINE DR.
An initial proposal to remove the parking along Marine Drive was rejected due to concerns from local businesses. A revised proposal is now being explored.
TransLink has confirmed that it involves changing the lanes immediately adjacent to the street parking to a bus lane. (Similar to HOV lane on Marine at Park Royal: for use of buses, those turning right or parking) Left-hand turns would be restricted in the remaining travel lane.
MESSAGE TO MEMBERS:
Ambleside & Dundarave Ratepayers Association members have provided the following questions and comments regarding the B-Line proposal.We are requesting answers from the District of West Vancouver and/or TransLink so we may circulate the information to our general membership.
Please know that our membership has indicated overwhelming support for improved transit and increasing transit ridership, but not all are convinced that the B-Line proposal is the most appropriate way to achieve this.
Thank you to all members who provided feedback. ADRA will circulate responses to the questions and any additional information when it is received.
