Focus of this plan
- Reducing carbon pollution created from burning gasoline and diesel in vehicles
- Supporting walkable, complete neighbourhoods
- Supporting a transition to active transportation and transit
- Encouraging drivers to switch to zero emissions vehicles
How we move around the city can influence health and well-being of individuals, communities, and our environment. It can point to social inequities and neighbourhoods that need more investment and care.
We're expecting to gain one million residents in the Metro Vancouver region in the next 20 years. There is no more room for additional road space for more driving or parking. Active transportation and transit can move more people in an equivalent amount of road space compared to motor vehicles.
Walkable, complete neighbourhoods
We will ensure 90% of people live within an easy walk or roll of their daily needs.
Active transportation and transit
We will ensure two-thirds of trips in Vancouver to be by active transportation and transit.
Zero emissions vehicles
We will ensure 50% of the kilometres driven on Vancouver's roads to be by zero emissions vehicles.
What this all means
Low-cost sustainable transportation options will be easy, safe, and reliable. People will live in walkable complete neighbourhoods and can get to work, school, and other destinations without needing to rely on gas and diesel vehicles. There will be less noise and pollution.
By 2030, you’ll notice:
- You're able to meet more of your daily needs in your neighbourhood
- Bus priority along 10 key corridors
- Connected cycling and walking networks city-wide
- EV charging in neighbourhoods throughout the City
