Transport pricing

On November 22, 2022, Council directed staff to suspend work on assessing the feasibility of transport pricing in Vancouver’s city centre. Review the full council decision

Background

In November 2020, Council approved the Climate Emergency Action Plan, which includes actions to significantly cut carbon emissions from our biggest local sources: burning gas and diesel in vehicles and using natural gas in buildings.

As part of the Climate Emergency Action Plan, we’ve developed 11 transportation actions that work together to create more options for transit, cycling, and walking, and to create more walkable communities. To further encourage the shift to active transportation and transit, Council directed staff to assess the feasibility of transport pricing.
