Cycling Projects

Infrastructure improvements to support cyclists throughout the region are currently underway. We work with our municipal stakeholders to maintain and improve regional cycling routes like BC Parkway and Central Valley Greenway, to keep them safe and reliable for all users. That’s more than 50 kilometres of pathway combined! We also make it easier for customers to combine cycling with their transit trip by providing a variety of bike parking options throughout the transit network, including Canada’s largest transit-integrated network of Bike Parkades.

These ongoing improvements support Metro Vancouver’s vision to make cycling in the region accessible for everyone, as set out in our Regional Cycling Strategy.

BC Parkway Upgrade Program

As part of TransLink’s ongoing investment in cycling infrastructure throughout the region, we’re making safety and accessibility improvements to BC Parkway.

BC Parkway is a 26-kilometre, multi-use path that follows SkyTrain’s Expo Line, connecting Surrey City Centre, New Westminster, South Burnaby and Vancouver. The route offers a one-path ride through four municipalities for commuters and endless opportunities to explore vibrant neighbourhoods and parks. The Parkway was originally constructed more than 30 years ago, when bike paths were an up-and-coming concept and there were few established requirements for path design.

Since 2014, TransLink has been making ongoing improvements to the aging Parkway, including path rehabilitation and widening where possible, retaining wall upgrades, and accessibility upgrades to make BC Parkway safer and more enjoyable for all users – daily commuters and fun-seekers alike!

Investing to maintain the safety and reliability of BC Parkway is a key part of our goal to make cycling an easier choice for transportation and exploring for more people throughout the region.

2021 BC Parkway Upgrades

Beginning in 2021, we’re making improvements to BC Parkway at several locations through Burnaby, New Westminster, and Vancouver.

Upgrades include:

  • The replacement of aging path, curbs, and retaining walls to maintain the safety of BC Parkway for all users

  • The addition of wheelchair ramps at two locations in Vancouver to improve accessibility


  • Burnaby — Complete

    • Along Central Boulevard from Patterson Station to Willingdon Avenue

  • New Westminster — Complete

    • South of Grimston Park, along lane east of 20th Street

  • Vancouver

    • South end of Gladstone Street — Expected completion June 2022

    • East of Nanaimo Station in the lane north of E 26 Avenue — Complete

    • The lane between Rupert Street and Manor Street — Complete

    To ensure the safety of all BC Parkway users, detours will be in place while construction crews are working. We thank everyone for their patience while we work to improve BC Parkway.
