Transport 2050


The region’s new 30-year transportation strategy has been adopted!


After three years in the making, Transport 2050 is here! The new Regional Transportation Strategy will improve transportation for the people who live, work, and play in Metro Vancouver.

100+ Actions

Transport 2050 identifies over 100 actions to deliver transportation choice. Whether you walk, bike, roll, transit, or drive. These actions will also help the region reach its goals.

Traffic separated transit and walking, biking, and rolling make it safe and comfortable to travel. At the same time, shared autonomous vehicles provide convenient options for people to access the convenience of a car, without the burdens of ownership

Putting rapid transit within a short walk of most people and frequent local transit within a short walk of nearly everyone

Most long trips are facilitated by fast and reliable rapid transit, which is traffic separated and free from congestion, on major boulevards. The provision of ‘comfortable for most’ active transportation infrastructure invites walking, biking, and rolling as the preferred mode for short trips.

Creating an 850-kilometre major bikeway network

A transformed street puts people first, inviting social gatherings and play, facilitated by a shift away from private vehicle use and storage. Motor vehicles are still welcomed but as low speed guests into this people first space. eBike sharing systems and open up new options for local access to opportunity

Dedicating more streets to walking, biking, rolling, and transit

More residential neighbourhoods reap the rewards of near universal access to frequent local transit. Traffic protected active transportation infrastructure makes walking, biking, and rolling highly attractive, while shared ebikes and e-scooters open up new options for convenient local travel

Promoting electric and shared vehicles: bikes, scooters, and cars


A Shared Strategy for the Region

Transport 2050 was created from TransLink’s largest-ever public engagement. Thanks to your input — and from partnerships across the region — we have a strategy to shape the future of how we move and live.
