The new plan for expanding public transit across B.C.'s Lower Mainland and improving infrastructure for drivers, cyclists and pedestrians.
With federal and provincial government funding, we can reduce GHG emissions, improve affordability and keep our region moving.
Whether you ride in a bus or a car, on rail, a bike, wheels or your own two feet – no matter where you live in B.C.'s Lower Mainland –
Access for Everyone has something for you.
We need to get moving, now!
The federal government is targeting a big increase in immigration that will bring hundreds of thousands of new residents to B.C.'s Lower Mainland over the next 25 years – more than we’ve planned for. Unless we invest in our transportation system now, our region won’t be able to handle this population growth.
B.C.'s Lower Mainland is the most expensive region in the country for housing. Affordable transit and expanding to more parts of the region helps people lower their monthly transportation budgets and opens up options for living in more affordable communities.
The more people use transit, the more cars we remove from the road, lowering GHG emissions and keeping our air clean. A transit system that’s easier for people to access is a critical part of meeting federal and provincial climate action targets.
A plan for everyone
The Access for Everyone plan will reach every corner of the region, helping people get where they need to go.
With federal and provincial funding, the Access for Everyone plan will double bus services across B.C.'s Lower Mainland, introduce nine new Bus Rapid Transit lines, and enable TransLink to take the next steps to adding rapid transit on the heavily congested North Shore, to SFU and UBC and other parts of the region.
