Area Transport Planning

Metro Vancouver is a large region comprised of 23 diverse communities and municipalities. To ensure local context and needs are understood and reflected in transportation planning, TransLink divides Metro Vancouver into sub-regions.

TransLink works closely with municipal governments, stakeholders, and the public to develop local and sub-regional plans for enhancing transit service and infrastructure, while also addressing aspects of cycling, walking, driving, and goods movement.

Area Transport Plans support and inform key planning processes like TransLink’s Regional Transportation Strategy and the Mayors’ Council 10-Year Vision, which establish the region’s long-term transportation vision, overall goals, targets, policy direction, and investment priorities.
