Moving Forward

Delivering the 10-Year Vision for Metro Vancouver Transportation

We've launched Metro Vancouver’s biggest transportation expansion in almost a decade. More transit, better roads, safer cycling and pedestrian access – for everyone. The 10-Year Vision is an investment in our future, and that future for better transit is now!

The first phase of the 10-Year Vision is underway with more frequent SkyTrain, bus and SeaBus service and improved access to HandyDART. Discover the investments underway in your community.

We’re currently working on funding the next phase to deliver the remaining investments within the 10-Year Vision. Learn about what's to come next on our Planned Projects page.

Keeping our Region Moving

Over the next 30 years, Metro Vancouver will welcome more than one million new residents and 600,000 new jobs. The 10-Year Vision is the blueprint for the future of our transportation system. Developed by the Mayors’ Council in 2014 following years of planning and public consultation, the 10-Year Vision reflects the consensus of 23 local governments, and is supported by the largest coalition of community, environmental, and business stakeholders in B.C.’s history.

A plan for everyone

The 10-Year Vision is the most advanced transit and mobility plan in Canada. It includes investments that will serve residents across the entire Metro Vancouver region – from roads and bridges, to buses, light rail, and active transportation.

Fair and affordable

Making the 10-Year Vision a reality will require funding from all three levels of government, as well as users of the transit system and road network, and property owners.

Protecting our environment

Investing in public transit, cycling, and walking infrastructure helps reduce our dependence on automobiles and improves our air quality through reduced GHG emissions.

Supporting a vibrant economy

By investing in our transportation system and reducing traffic congestion, we can make commuting more efficient for workers and students, and move goods more quickly throughout our region.
