In addition to planning, financing and managing Metro Vancouver’s major road network and transit system, TransLink has created a long-range plan that lays the foundation for transportation solutions over the next 30 years. Transport 2040 examines our region as a whole. It identifies today’s challenges and forecasts how those challenges might look tomorrow. By outlining a number of goals and strategies, Transport 2040 is a guide to creating a more sustainable transportation system and continuing Metro Vancouver’s standing as one of the most livable cities on the planet.
Tom Prendergast TransLink’s Chief Executive Officer is an internationally respected transportation expert, having held leadership roles with some of the best-known public and private transportation and infrastructure agencies in the world.
