Researchers at post-secondary institutions can now apply for up to $50,000 in research funding grants to explore new mobility issues and solutions.
The New Mobility Lab is our new engagement portal for post-secondary institutions, researchers, and university students.
New mobility is commonly defined as electric, connected, automated and shared transportation. Broadly, it can be defined as use of technology or other innovations to improve movement of people and goods, both in terms of consumer experience and overall efficiency.
TransLink aims to continuously explore, test, and implement innovative ways to improve mobility in Metro Vancouver and further three key goals:
- Enable seamless and efficient door-to-door mobility for people and goods;
- Promote safe, healthy, clean, and compact communities;
- Ensure affordable and equitable access for all.
We provide stable, multi-year funding towards a coordinated program of applied research aimed at answering new mobility related questions of relevance to us and our local government partners.
