Lonsdale Quay

Lonsdale Quay is a transit hub for Vancouver's North Shore municipalities, as well as a public market and tourist destination.

Located at the foot of Lonsdale Avenue in the City of North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, it is the northern terminal for the SeaBus passenger ferry. There is also a hotel located above the marketplace, and an adjacent building houses the headquarters for the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia.

The marketplace features a number of food retailers, restaurants, and a second level consisting of specialty retail shops.

The quay is located on the former site of North Van Ship Repair, a major shipyard during World War II.

In the 2010s, the Quay became the site of intensive construction of housing developments, backed by Mayor Darrell Mussatto.[1]

Connected to the SeaBus terminal is a covered bus loop, from which passengers can board buses to Grouse Mountain, Lynn Valley, West Vancouver and other points of interest on the North Shore.

Security for the bus loop and Seabus terminal is the responsibility of the Transit Security Department. Transit Security Officers can be found patrolling the bus loop and the Seabus terminal.
