Trucks, commercial, and oversize vehicles

When trucks and commercial vehicles can move efficiently, it positively impacts the economic health of the city. We balance the needs of trucks and commercial vehicles while maintaining:

  • The flow of traffic through Vancouver
  • The safety of pedestrians, cyclists, and other drivers
  • The¬†livability of the residents of Vancouver

We work with the Vancouver Police Department, ICBC, Port Metro Vancouver, and major employers to do this. Enforcement of our regulations is initiated through public complaints, staff concerns, and safety inspections.
