Working together to provide new and improved transportation options on, to and from the North Shore

More time living, less time commuting

North Shore Connects is a partnership between the District of West Vancouver, Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish Nation), City of North Vancouver, District of North Vancouver and səlilwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh Nation).

North Shore Connects will make it easier for people who live, work and play on the North Shore to get around. We are working together to reduce congestion, strengthen regional connections and support livable communities. Our goal is to help everyone spend more time living, and less time commuting.

This initiative builds on the work and recommendations of the Integrated North Shore Transportation Planning Project.

Priorities

Burrard Inlet Rapid Transit

Transport 2050, TransLink’s regional strategy, includes BIRT, a fully traffic-separated rapid transit connection to the North Shore between Park Royal and Metrotown. North Shore Connects will support TransLink, government agencies, and stakeholders to determine the most appropriate alignment, travel technology and phasing for the project. Learn more about BIRT

Lower Level Road

North Shore Connects is working together to evaluate a western Lower Level road extension, a secondary east-west connector from the Park Royal area to West 1st across the Capilano River. This project would help to alleviate traffic congestion on Marine Drive, improve port-related goods movement, provide improved transit options, and improve walking and cycling connections.

Upper Levels Corridor Study

North Shore Connects is working with the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure to develop a long-term plan for the section of Highway 1 between Lynn Valley Road and the Horseshoe Bay ferry terminal.
