FAQs

What is a Park and Ride?

A Park and Ride is where people drive to a parking facility in order to access the transit network to continue their journey. A Park and Ride can be an efficient way for people to access the transit system in parts of the region with lower transit coverage and frequency. Customers who use a Park and Ride are typically taking longer commuting trips.

Where are the Park and Rides located?

There are 18 Park and Ride facilities across Metro Vancouver, however only 9 are managed by TransLink. These provide almost 5,500 parking spaces. Six of these facilities serve West Coast Express stations with the rest serving SkyTrain, Canada Line and bus loops. There are additional privately-operated Park and Ride facilities across the region that serve a similar purpose.

The new Carvolth Park and Ride opened in December 2012 with roughly 650 spaces. This lot supports the new Highway 1 Rapid Bus service across the Port Mann Bridge. In addition, work is underway to deliver Park and Ride facilities associated with the Evergreen Line.

Why Did TransLink develop a Park and Ride policy?

TransLink has developed a new policy for its Park and Ride facilities across the region with four key objectives:
  • Improve efficiency of TransLink's 9 Park and Ride facilities.
  • Be fair and equitable for all customers.
  • Improve access for customers who have no other way of accessing the regional transit system.
  • Contribute operating, maintenance and capital costs of the facilities.

A comprehensive policy will help TransLink make strategic decisions about when Park and Ride facilities are needed, and how this need should be met. The policy will also help TransLink make the best use of its resources.

What does the Park and Ride policy include?

The Park and Ride policy outlines TransLink’s approach to existing and future Park and Ride facilities in Metro Vancouver. The policy brings a consistent approach to Park and Ride management and establishes clear planning principles to guide decision-making.

The policy does not include specific pricing levels, but outlines considerations for pricing, supply and management including: location, type and frequency of transit service, accessibility to the transit network, utilization patterns of the facility and future uses of the land and surrounding lands.

When will the policy be implemented?

TransLink will be implementing variable paid parking starting in 2013. The goal is to use a phased approach to ultimately roll the policy out to all TransLink-managed facilities where possible.

TransLink has adopted a Park and Ride Policy to guide the supply, pricing and management of TransLink-managed facilities. The policy brings a consistent approach to Park and Ride management and establishes clear planning principles to guide decision-making.

In our consultation on the draft Base Plan, we heard that two-thirds of respondents are not concerned about implementing a new park and ride charge. Over the coming months, we will be working to implement variable paid parking at all Translink-managed Park and Ride facilities where feasible.
