Your Metro Vancouver voice on transit and transportation
The Mayors’ Council is the collective voice of Metro Vancouver residents on transit and transportation.
As part of TransLink’s governance structure, we approve plans dealing with transit service levels, major capital projects, and regional funding and borrowing limits.
What's The Connection Between Translink and the Mayors' Council?
TransLink is Metro Vancouver’s regional transportation authority, responsible for planning and managing the region’s transportation system.
This includes buses and RapidBus throughout the region, SkyTrain, SeaBus, West Coast Express, HandyDART, the Major Road Network, as well as regional cycling and pedestrian infrastructure.
Our vision for the future of transportation in Metro Vancouver
Transport 2050 is a shared strategy for transportation in Metro Vancouver for the next 30 years that will identify projects and services.
The first phase of the planning process took place in 2019 with Translink’s largest ever public engagement.
This process will continue through 2020, with final approval of a new long-term plan in 2021.
