Regional Transportation Strategy
We’re starting a conversation on the future of the region’s transportation system, and we want you to be part of it!
We’re updating our current Regional Transportation Strategy, Transport 2040. The updates will help continue to realize a common vision for transportation in Metro Vancouver over the next 30 years.
Today we have one of the best transportation systems in North America. By 2045, a million more people will live here, and there will be more jobs and more demand for transportation. We can’t have all of those people travelling the same way we do today and keep our quality of life. Improving our system in a way that protects our health, economy, environment and our future is more important than ever.
