Moving Forward

The 10-Year Vision for Metro Vancouver Transportation

Metro Vancouver’s biggest transportation expansion is underway. More transit, better roads, safer cycling and pedestrian access — for everyone. The 10-Year Vision is an investment in our future, and that future for better transit starts now!

TransLink is asking for public input on the Phase Two Plan from April 30 to May 11, 2018.

Planning for Progress

The 10-Year Vision is being rolled out in phases, each timed to the planning and delivery of new projects and services.

Phase One funded approximately $2 billion in expanded transit services, transit infrastructure and improvements for roads, cycling, and walking, beginning in 2017. Phase Two is currently in development and would fund an estimated $7 billion of transportation improvements in the 10-Year Vision.
