239 Capilano University/Park Royal Wc15.JPG is a bus route operated by Coast Mountain Bus Company in Metro Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Route Details

This is a crosstown route serving most parts of North Vancouver, including connections to Phibbs Exchange and Lonsdale Quay.

The route for the most part, follows Marine Drive in North Vancouver. The route stops at Lonsdale Quay for passengers to connect to the SeaBus and many other North Vancouver bus routes. At Phibbs Exchange, the 239 connects to routes serving Vancouver, Burnaby, and the numerous districts of North Vancouver.

In the case of traffic from either of the bridges, the route may split in two at Phibbs Exchange with a shuttle operating between Phibbs and Capilano University.

By late 2019, it will be replaced by the North Shore B-Line.
