On November 16, 2023, Mayors’ Council announced the Metrotown-Park Royal BRT line as a prioritized corridor for investment but funding still needs to be secured. On November, 22, 2023, the North Vancouver Chamber hosted an panel discussion with North Shore Connects partners, TransLink and Quay North Urban Development. Businesses of all sizes and industries attended the event and vocalized their support for the Metrotown-Park Royal BRT as it will support staff retention, goods movement, and more.

The North Vancouver Chamber stands strong with those leading the charge to get rapid transit to, from and across the North Shore. We have a long history of leadership in this discussion. Since 2016, the North Vancouver Chamber and associated leadership group Economic Partnership North Vancouver (now North Shore or EPNS) has led the call for action to deal with our “ECONOMY in GRIDLOCK”.

We were pleased to host this panel discussion of such importance to our business community.
