TransLink and the Government of British Columbia have released the Truck Route Planner, an online tool to help commercial vehicle operators plan their trips. This tool is the first of its kind in Canada to plan truck routes with a holistic picture of the region’s commercial vehicle network.
To use the Truck Route Planner, truck operators input the dimensions of their vehicle with their desired destination and starting point to find the optimum route for their vehicle. The Truck Route Planner suggests optimum routes based on:
- The operator’s vehicle dimensions
- Municipal bylaws
- Height clearances
- Bridge weight load limits
- Major road closures on truck routes
Identified as a priority in the 2017 regional goods movement strategy, the Truck Route Planner was developed with support from BC municipalities, the BC Trucking Association, and the Greater Vancouver Urban Freight Council.
