Province and mayors sign regional transportation agreement

This update is really an announcement from the Province of B.C. and Metro Vancouver’s mayors, but TransLink is clearly affected by its impacts, so it’s definitely important to note here!

Last Friday, the province and the mayors signed a regional transportation agreement, which commits them to working together to seek stable funding for TransLink, and agreeing on principles for livable transportation growth in our region. Read the provincial press release here — the full text of the agreement is at the bottom.

For more, have a look at articles on the topic from the Globe and Mail, Coquitlam Now, CBC News, the Vancouver Sun, and the Province.

As this isn’t our release, I’m not sure I will have many answers for you — but feel free to ask questions and I’ll see what I can do!
