Metro Vancouver’s multi-modal transportation network connects vibrant communities, not only downtown but also across a very diverse region. Surrounded by mountains and water, Metro Vancouver consistently ranks as one of the most livable regions in the world. Come find out how intentional planning and development has shaped North America’s most transit-oriented communities, large and small.
Metro Vancouver is enjoying a time of unprecedented growth in transit ridership, transit-oriented development and investment in the transit system. Half of all new development occurs around the Frequent Transit Network, with approximately 100 active projects within a block of a SkyTrain station.

At the same time, more than CDN $7 billion in inew investment in rail, bus, roads, cycling and pedestrian infrastructure is set to transform the region.
