How do our provincial leaders propose to invest in transportation? How will transportation projects - from tunnels and bridges, to cycling paths, to light rail and subways - affect the economy and environment of our region?
Metro Vancouver expects another half million jobs and 1.2 million more residents over the next three decades. Our continued economic success depends on layered public transportation in our urban centres, strengthened connections to rapidly growing suburban communities, better use of existing space for goods movement, and more affordable and healthy options.
