West Vancouver Transit (commonly known as Blue Bus and formally and formerly as West Vancouver Municipal Transit and abbreviated as WVMT) is owned and operated by the District Municipality of West Vancouver under a contract with TransLink. The system started operating in 1912 and is the oldest continually-operated municipal transit system in North America. All units were equipped with bike racks in June 1999.

Fares

Fares are set by TransLink and all buses accept Compass Cards. See TransLink for more details.

Current Fleet Roster

All active buses are owned by the South Coast British Columbia Transportation Authority (TransLink). Preserved buses 61 and 995 are owned by the District of West Vancouver.

As of January 2020, all Community Shuttles follow TransLink's current corporate numbering system instead of WVMT's unique numbering system. Previous orders of shuttles followed the old TransLink shuttle numbering system, and some orders followed the WVMT system.
