Streets and transportation

We work together with TransLink and Metro Vancouver municipalities to build and maintain an integrated transportation system that moves people and goods through our city and region.

We are responsible for building and maintaining our roads, sidewalks and public spaces, managing how city streets are used, and creating land use and urban design policies.

Transportation 2040: improving our economy, environment, and communities

The Transportation 2040 Plan supports an inclusive, healthy, prosperous, and liveable future for Vancouver. The plan will guide transportation decisions for how people and goods will move in and around Vancouver over the next 30 years. It is our roadmap for a future where walking, cycling, and transit are attractive options for getting around.
