After a heated discussion Monday night, West Vancouver city council has deferred a vote on the fate of a controversial proposal to extend B-Line bus service along Marine Drive in West Vancouver.

At issue is the route from Park Royal to Dundarave, that includes the elimination of parking spots on Marine Drive.

More than three dozen speakers who made their presentations before council offered a variety of opinions for and against the B-Line extension.

A motion introduced by Councillor Peter Lambur advises that staff engage with various stakeholders to review detailed B-Line design plans and discuss alternative solutions, route configurations, costs, and sources of funding. Staff would then report back to council with their findings within 30 days.

Council is scheduled to debate the issue and vote on March 11.
