Nanaimo Exchange

As part of the TransLink Maintenance and Repair Program, we are upgrading the Nanaimo Bus Exchange to improve safety and comfort for our customers, and to prepare for future service expansion.

The Nanaimo Bus Exchange serves the #25, the fifth busiest bus route on the system, and approximately 4,600 customers each weekday. Upgrades are needed to meet the needs of our growing region.

Planned upgrades include:

  • New bus shelters, benches and landscaping to make the environment more inviting;
  • A new plaza to reduce crowding and make it easier to transfer between bus and SkyTrain;
  • Enhanced lighting and sightlines to improve safety;
  • A new layout to improve pedestrian, cyclist and motorist flow.

Construction details:

  • Construction is expected to begin in fall 2018 and end in spring 2019.
  • Neighbours can expect increased construction activity and noise, but at this time no overnight construction activity is anticipated.
  • All buses will continue serving the Nanaimo Bus Exchange, however some service may be slightly altered and bus stops will be temporarily relocated.

We thank neighbours and customers in advance for their patience while we complete this important work. Additional details will be shared once plans are finalized, well before construction begins.
