The 97 B-Line is a bus rapid transit line in Metro Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. It connects Coquitlam Central Station on the West Coast Express system to Lougheed Town Centre Station on the SkyTrain system. It is operated by Coast Mountain Bus Company and funded by TransLink. Going west, the route goes along Clarke Rd., St. John's St., Ioco Rd, Guildford Way and Pinetree Way, and serves Burnaby, Port Moody, and Coquitlam. The line carried 10,750 passengers on weekdays in 2011[2] and is expected to be replaced by the Evergreen Extension when it opens in early 2017.[3]

Unlike the other B-Line services, this route mainly uses conventional 40-foot buses with no special paint scheme. It takes 45 minutes to complete during rush hour, and about 30 minutes off-peak.
