Open Call for Innovation



We believe good ideas come from anyone and everyone – and that includes you.

That’s why every year TransLink issues an Open Call for Innovation. Each Open Call invites submissions from the public and private sector to address a transportation-related challenge that we face as a region. It’s all part of our broader plan to partner with industry leaders, innovators, academics and policymakers to collaborate on new mobility solutions that will help enhance the livability of Metro Vancouver.

For successful submissions, TransLink offers funding and collaboration to incubate, develop, pilot and implement your idea. We’ll work with you to make your good idea even better and help turn it into reality.

The 2019 Open Call for Innovation is now closed. Stay tuned for project updates.

Past Open Calls for Innovation

2018 "Seamless Mobility"

The inaugural Open Call for Innovation focused on bringing the opportunities of seamless mobility to Metro Vancouver – how it can be achieved and how barriers can be overcome. TransLink received 90 submissions and announced a joint initiative with Modo Co-op, Mobi by ShawGo, and BCAA (Evo Car Share) in January 2019 as an outcome of this Open Call.

2019 “Customer Services and Amenities”

All transit journeys begin and end at a stop, station or exchange. They’re an important part of our communities and we have an opportunity to improve this part of the customers’ journey. Through the second Open Call for Innovation, we asked for ideas on how innovative technologies, solutions, processes, business models and partnerships can enhance our customers’ transit experience. TransLink is currently evaluating 45 submissions and successful partnerships will be announced in 2019/2020.
