History

  • October 1973 - Route introduced as 214 Berkley; service operates between Hyannis at Sechelt to Kootenay Loop via Riverside Drive and Phibbs Exchange; peak hour service to donwtown Vancouver (Hornby at Smithe) introduced as 714 Berkley FastBUS.[1]
  • May 1975 - Downtown Terminus moved to Haro–Smithe Connector between Thurlow and Burrard Streets.[2]
  • December 1984 - Re-routed to Mount Seymour Parkway after the road was extended to Fern Street [3]
  • October 2001 - Funding shortfall forces cancellation of service after 10:00PM on all days[4]
  • April 2005 - Off peak service switched to Community Shuttle service at 30 minute frequencies[5]
  • November 2005 - Two late night trips added[6]
  • June 2008 - Service along Carrall Street re-routed to take current routing due to the Carrall Street Greenway project[7]
  • September 2015 - Rerouted onto Highway 1 between Fern Street and Phibbs Exchange
  • September 2016 - North Vancouver Transit Centre closed down, conventional operations moved to Burnaby Transit Centre while shuttle operations moved to Hamilton Transit Centre
  • September 2017 - Community Shuttle operations moved to West Vancouver due to inefficient deadheading between Hamilton Transit Centre and North Vancouver. With this change, the route became the first in TransLink history to be operated by two operating companies: off-peak shuttle operations done by West Vancouver Transit while peak hour conventional service operated by Coast Mountain Bus Company
