Vancouver, British Columbia, June 30, 2022—Today, the Honourable Jonathan Wilkinson, Minister of Natural Resources and Member of Parliament for North Vancouver and Terry Beech, Parliamentary Secretary to the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance, and Member of Parliament for Burnaby North—Seymour, on behalf of the Honourable Dominic LeBlanc, Minister of Intergovernmental Affairs, Infrastructure and Communities and B.C.’s Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure, the Honourable Rob Fleming, announced more than $30 million in joint federal-provincial funding for upgrades and improvements to the Phibbs Transit Exchange, a key transit hub in North Vancouver that serves nearly 14,000 passengers on a daily basis.

The project has now gone out to tender and construction is expected to begin in late summer once a successful proponent has been selected.

The North Shore community will benefit from important upgrades to increase capacity and support expansion. Improvements include 12 new bus bays to meet future needs, such as the accommodation of articulated buses, as well as safer pedestrian and cycling accessways, better lighting and signage, and related road infrastructure and drainage gardens. Commuters and transit employees will also benefit from two new buildings: a light food concession and a transit operator rest station.

The Government of Canada is investing more than $11.7 million in this project, while the Government of British Columbia is contributing over $18.8 million.
