Investing for the future:
Planned projects

Our first step in delivering the 10-Year Vision was focused on overcrowding on transit and congestion on major roads. Our next step will enable us to further expand and improve Metro Vancouver’s transportation network to meet the demands of our growing population.

Funding the Next Phase

The Phase Two Plan is an historic investment in the region’s transit and transportation system – one of the largest in Metro Vancouver’s history.

TransLink and the Mayors’ Council can now move forward with consulting on the 2018 Investment Plan and securing sustainable funding of our regional share. Public consultation on the Phase Two Plan, and how the region proposes to fund its share, is happening later this spring. Learn more by reading the 10-Year Vision Phase Two Summary. More information about the region’s funding proposals will be available in advance of consultation.

Investing in our Future

TransLink will present the next phase of the 10-Year Vision to the public, for input, in spring 2018. Just like the consultation on Phase One, you will have a chance to see details of the transit and road improvements being planned for your community and to comment on proposed investments and regional funding sources.

Major investments in the 2018 Investment Plan:

  • Surrey-Newton-Guildford Light Rail to provide a new rapid transit option for the fastest growing city in British Columbia
  • Millennium Line Broadway Extension to extend SkyTrain on the busiest transit corridor in our region
  • a massive upgrade of existing Expo and Millennium Line SkyTrain to expand its capacity to meet double-digit ridership growth, and improve the customer experience
  • a further increase in bus service throughout the Metro Vancouver region to address overcrowding, reduce wait times and bring bus services to many neighbourhoods that currently have limited bus options
  • more HandyDART trips
  • improvements to sidewalks, bikeways and multi-use pathways
  • early work on the Surrey-Langley LRT
  • addressing bottlenecks and other upgrades to major roads

Seeking Your Input

As part of the development and finalization of the next investment plan, TransLink will consult with the public in spring 2018 – stayed tuned for future information for how to get involved.
