It’s been quite the year for us! As 2022 comes to a close, I’d like to take a moment to reflect on what we have accomplished, with customers like you at the centre of everything we do.

Not only did we lay a strong foundation for the future of transportation in this region, embracing opportunities and challenges along the way, but we also made strides in important areas like addressing climate change and improving the customer experience.

With the launch of several short and long-term ambitious plans, we’re getting set to move into the future – all while keeping this region moving safely and reliably.

We’re here for you, every day

We’ve continued to deliver for customers like you, and for the region, each and every day.

After launching our Customer Experience Action Plan earlier this year, we got to work right away on initiatives that bring our system to life. Whether it’s the addition of our Transit Volunteers, featuring arts and music on the system, introducing the Bike Bus service, or opening our new flagship Customer Service Centre at Waterfront Station — every decision we make has our customers top of mind.

We’re tackling some of the Metro Vancouver’s biggest issues

This year we launched Transport 2050, our new regional transportation strategy, as well as the 10-Year Priorities; focused on the first decade of projects from Transport 2050. We adopted our first-ever Climate Action Strategy and Climate Action Plan; setting the stage for TransLink to be climate-resilient, with net-zero GHGs by 2050.

These plans were formed on the foundation that we need to act now to address important issues like increasing congestion and the climate emergency, as an estimated 50,000 people move to the region each year.

Thanks to the input of more than 160,000 conversations with the public and over 500 stakeholder groups, I am proud to say that our vision for the future of transportation is one that reflects not only what the region wants most, but also offers innovative solutions to the challenges we’re facing.

We’re excited to keep the momentum going

This video reflects the spirit in our organization and demonstrates the energy we’re bringing into the new year.

As we think ahead to 2023, I’m optimistic for what’s next and am excited to see our vision for the future come to life. I’m so proud that we get to play a role in helping you connect to the people and places that matter most.

Wishing you all a happy and healthy holiday season.
