New bus priority lane cuts commute times
The northbound bus priority lane is now open from Tolmie Avenue to the Burnside Bridges, saving commuters at least 10 minutes from Fisgard Street to Tillicum Road during peak travel times. The Highway 1 / Douglas Street corridor currently supports as many as 1,700 vehicles per hour during peak travel times, and congestion for commuters to and from the western communities continues to increase. Not only do bus priority lanes save significant time for passengers, but also improve the reliability of BC Transit service, ease congestion and reduce harmful emissions.
