How we move

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.

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
