Abstract
Public transportation is crucial in helping to grow cities sustainably. Good public transportation allows for less car-dependence, healthier and less polluted communities, and more equitable communities. Within BC's Lower Mainland, the current lack of inter-regional transit options, combined with the high level of congestion, pollution, and growing population in the Fraser Valley and Metro Vancouver's eastern communities presents opportunities to explore different methods to better connect the Fraser Valley and Metro Vancouver with mass transit. The study looks at data from a jurisdictional scan and expert interviews to analyze several different inter-regional transit proposals that have been discussed within the Lower Mainland. The findings can help to aid urban planning within the Lower Mainland and look at how to best address this gap in the region's transportation infrastructure.
