Property Taxes And Transportation

TransLink funds road and transit operations within the Metro Vancouver region, including improvements and expansion, from its share of the motor fuel tax, transit fares and a portion of property taxes collected in each region’s 21 municipalities.

The reason for using property tax as one of the ways to pay for the regional transportation system is that the system provides benefits to all residents; even those who don’t use transit or might not even drive. The efficient movement of people, goods and services is vital to our economy, our environment and our quality of life.
