Final week to submit your ideas for Transport 2050

September 17, 2019

NEW WESTMINSTER, BC — Metro Vancouver residents have only seven days left to share their big 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.

“Long-term transportation planning is critical to the prosperity and livability of our region”, says TransLink CEO Kevin Desmond. “The planning for many big projects like the Canada Line, Evergreen Extension, and RapidBus routes began in Transport 2021 – which was written in the early nineties. Transport 2050 is our largest engagement ever and a real opportunity for every person to help shape the long-term future of Metro Vancouver.”

Transport 2050 will create a 30-year vision for all transportation of people and goods throughout the region. TransLink is asking for input from everyone – whether they mostly drive, walk, cycle, or take transit.

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 trade-offs.
