Moving People with Transit


Transit is the backbone of a low carbon community and an integral part of a healthy built environment.

That is why the Government of BC is working to improve public transportation infrastructure in Metro Vancouver and in BC Transit communities across the province. This will include the purchase of more SkyTrain cars, improvements to bus exchanges and SkyTrain stations, enhanced SeaBus service, initial work towards new major rapid transit in Vancouver and Surrey, and the modernization of a variety of TransLink’s transit infrastructure.

Outside of the Lower Mainland, the Government of BC will build new maintenance yards and bus depots, and purchase new, cleaner and more efficient buses. Combined with contributions from federal and local governments, these improvements will benefit residents across the province opening up more affordable, transit-friendly communities.
