rendering of a bus on the street with people and buildings

41st Avenue B-Line

We are working with TransLink to implement a new B-Line bus from Joyce-Collingwood to UBC, the second busiest bus corridor in the region after Broadway.

The new B-Line will replace the current 43 Bus Route and have much higher frequencies and longer operating hours than the 43 Bus Route, making transit much more convenient and attractive.

The bus stops will also include more passenger amenities, including real-time arrival bus information. 

To ensure buses are reliable, and transit travel times are improved on 41st Ave, updates to the street will include: 

  • Creation of transit-priority lanes for at least a portion of the day along certain segments of the corridor
  • Changes to some bus stop locations from near side to far side of intersections to improve transit operations and reduce travel time
  • Introduction of new turning lanes to improve overall traffic flow
  • A queue jump lane at Kingsway and Joyce to help buses enter the intersection ahead of other vehicles
  • Changes to signal timing to increase reliability of transit travel along the corridor

What's happening

Joyce-Collingwood information session

City of Vancouver and TransLink staff are looking to discuss the proposed B-Line designs, answer any questions, and gather your feedback. We're also seeking feedback on the bus hours and how we can support a transition to 24-hour priority bus lanes, seven days a week.

What TransLink heard in the first phase of consultation

Public support from current transit riders for frequency, routing, and general stop amenities for the 41st Avenue B-Line proposal was overwhelmingly positive:

  • Support from public transit users was strong across all proposed transit priority measures
  • The majority of respondents supported the proposed 41st Ave B-Line stop locations, changes to local routes, and transit priority measures
  • A large majority of respondents supported changes to streets and intersections to support speed and reliability of the new 41st Ave B-Line

90% of respondents supported all four proposed B-Lines.
