Do you have a big idea about transportation in Metro Vancouver?

Well, time is running out to submit it.

Metro Vancouver residents have only a few days remaining to share ideas for Transport 2050 – the blueprint for the next 30 years of transportation in the region.

The first phase of engagement currently has input from every regional municipality and over 2,000 ideas have been submitted.

Residents are encouraged to share:

  • What they value about living in the region
  • Ideas on how to improve or expand transit
  • Ideas on the future of transportation
  • Opinions on emerging modes of transport including automated, connected, electric and shared mobility such as ride-hailing, car sharing, and shared micromobility options like e-bikes and e-scooters

The Transport 2050 engagement team has reached communities in every regional municipality since engagement launched in May. The survey is available online in English, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, and Punjabi.

The first phase of Transport 2050 ends on Sunday, September 22. TransLink will then review the data and early next year will present packages of projects, policies and programs to the public to help evaluate the tradeoffs.
