Kootenay Loop is a major public transit exchange in Vancouver, British Columbia. It services routes going to East Vancouver, Downtown Vancouver, Burnaby, North Vancouver and the Tri-Cities.

It is also the eastern-most major exchange in the city of Vancouver.

Structure and location

Kootenay Loop is located on East Hastings Street, at the intersection with Kootenay Street. It is less than 100 metres from Vancouver's border with the city of Burnaby. It is just a few minutes away from the Pacific National Exhibition grounds and the Second Narrows Bridge to North Vancouver. It is several minutes west of the Burnaby Transit Depot, which houses the public transit buses for Burnaby and is the base of operations for the 99 B-Line.

The exchange can handle regular-length diesel buses, articulated buses and electric trolley buses. Part of the exchange is on Hastings Street itself, with the other part (where the trolley buses go) separated from regular traffic. It is also one of the power stations for the trolleys.
