Construction has started on a major upgrade of the Phibbs Exchange in North Vancouver that will increase capacity, enhance safety and security, improve active transportation connections and support the evolution of transit service on the North Shore for decades to come.

The $32-million Phibbs project includes 12 new bus bays to accommodate the community’s current and future transit needs, including additional space for articulated (accordion) buses. The project will also ensure that the Phibbs Exchange is compatible with RapidBus service to meet the needs of the growing North Shore community.

“Phibbs Exchange is an important regional transit hub and transition point for people travelling to, from and through the North Shore by public transit,” said Bowinn Ma, B.C. Minister of State for Infrastructure and MLA for North Vancouver-Lonsdale. “These improvements will make the exchange safer, more comfortable, and better able to accommodate the future transportation needs of our growing communities.”
