Traffic is only going to get worse on the North Shore.
Despite aiming to concentrate density in transit-served centres, District of North Vancouver planners say the car will be the community’s dominant transportation option for decades to come.
Doug Doyle, acting district manager of engineering services, told a Monday night council workshop that by 2030, staff hope that 35 per cent of all trips would be made either by walking, biking or taking transit, up from the current 21 per cent.
The district hopes that TransLink will provide frequent bus service — seven- to 10-minute intervals — from Lynn Valley to Lower Lynn, Capilano University and the Lower Capilano Area. Express buses are hoped for from Lynn Valley and Lower Lynn to Lonsdale, Park Royal, and Dundarave.
