The South Coast British Columbia Transportation Authority Amendment Act
The Mayors’ Council 10-Year Vision for improved transportation in Metro Vancouver will provide much-needed transit, road, cycling and pedestrian improvements throughout the region. The Province is committed to funding 40% of the capital costs of the 10-Year Vision, and to helping the region to come up with its share of the funding through a number of measures.
As part of this support, the Province has introduced the South Coast British Columbia Transportation Authority Amendment Act to act on one of the Mayors’ priority requests – providing the authority to TransLink to levy a development cost charge on new construction in the region.
With this authority, TransLink is better positioned to deliver the Mayors’ 10-Year Vision, which will bring major service and capacity upgrades to Metro Vancouver’s public transportation network so people can spend less time in traffic, and more time with their friends and family.
