The City of Vancouver has released a new map with designated motor coach/bus routes, which overlap existing truck routes but also include the Granville Bridge, Seymour Street, and Howe Street to Nelson Street within a designated area in the Downtown core.

Within the designated area, blue on the map, vehicles less than 15.25 m long are allowed to travel on any route.  Given the maximum legal length of a motor coach is 14 m as per Commercial Transport Regulation, Appendix C, motor coaches and buses may travel on any street within this area).

Note that the ability to use the Granville Bridge, Seymour Street, and Howe Street only applies to motor coaches with a GCVW below 27,000 kg (and not trucks).

A new Tour Bus Operator’s Guide is also available.
