We partnered with award-winning children’s entertainers Will Stroet of Will's Jams and the enduring Charlotte Diamond to inspire safe, courteous, and mindful road behaviour – especially for our most vulnerable and at-risk groups.
Children, seniors, people who walk, bike, or roll, including people in wheelchairs, are more vulnerable to injury or fatality than people in motor vehicles.
“Writing Grandma on the Move was really fun because I love creating songs about biking, driving, walking, and riding transit, which are all things I enjoy doing in our city. I live in a multi-generational home with my parents, wife, and two girls, and we do all these things to get around town. Happy travels!”
“This is an important project! Families of all ages need to feel connected to the people and places where they live. They need to safely explore all the fascinating areas of their city, town, or community. Become a Grandma or Grandpa on the Move!”

Our traffic safety team follows the five Es of creating safer streets thoughout the city:
Compared to peer cities, fatality rates in Vancouver are low, but there's still room for improvement, as even one fatality is too many.
In recent years, we have taken several steps to improve transportation safety using collision data from a variety of sources to:
- Identify key safety issues
- Prioritize intersections and corridors in need of detailed safety assessments
- Develop effective safety strategies
- Monitor progress
Our plan provides a vision for how people and goods move in and around Vancouver for the next 30 years.
Vancouver's transportation safety action plan has a goal to move towards zero traffic related fatalities.
Our program seeks to encourage and promote walking and cycling to school.
