In Metro Vancouver
The Mayor’s Council worked collaboratively with Metro Vancouver’s municipalities to develop an action plan to improve and expand our transit and transportation system.
These investments, to be completed over the coming 10 years, are essential to protecting our environment, strengthening our economy, and improving our health and quality of life.
Key Investment Highlights
The Mayors’ Council Transportation and Transit Plan will reduce traffic congestion by 20%, allowing drivers and transit users to save 20 to 30 minutes per day on commutes through some of the region’s most congested corridors.
For drivers, that means less time stuck in traffic and improved transit services that offer a real alternative to driving.
For transit users, it means new and more frequent bus service, improved HandyDART service and an expanded rail system.
Our plan will also make walking and cycling safer and more viable options for travel
