The City would like to hear from you! After reviewing the goals, please leave your feedback by completing a brief online survey. Your feedback will help the City understand if the goals are right for Vancouver and how they should be used to guide the TSP.


The draft goals and framework were developed based on robust public and stakeholder outreach around transportation values in the Summer and Fall of 2021. Building on this prior work, the City has developed the draft goals and framework that will be used to evaluate potential projects, policies, and programs to be recommended in the TSP.

The City is committed to an inclusive process, so hard copies and other accessible materials can be provided as needed. In addition, you can always request accommodations through the City's Americans with Disabilities (ADA) Program.


What's next?

The City will be collecting feedback on the Draft Goals Framework through the Spring of 2022. In the Summer, the City will be conducting additional outreach to share and gather community input on Draft TSP Solutions. Learn how to stay up to date by reading more below!

What is a Transportation System Plan?

A Transportation System Plan will help guide the City's future transportation system and serves as the update to the City's previous Transportation System Plan, last updated in 2004. The plan will explore transportation needs and priorities in partnership with Vancouver residents, employees, and visitors.

The Transportation System Plan will examine existing travel conditions for all users of the city's transportation system, including those who drive, walk, bicycle, ride transit, or deliver freight. The City will also talk to residents about their transportation priorities, with additional focus on communities that have been historically under-served by transportation investments.

Building from these conversations over the coming year, the Transportation System Plan will identify recommended policies, programs, and projects to guide the City's transportation future.


What is Vancouver Moves?

The TSP is part of the Vancouver Moves program - a citywide initiative to increase safety and mobility for all community members regardless of how they travel. Learn more about the Vancouver Moves portfolio of projects by visiting the City website.


Why transportation matters

Vancouver residents depend on the transportation system every day.

Transportation matters because everyone in Vancouver deserves a safe and reliable transportation system that meets their daily needs. Much has changed since the City’s current Transportation System Plan was adopted in 2004. Since 2010, Vancouver has welcomed more than 14,000 new residents and 10,000 new jobs, meaning the transportation system must meet the needs of a growing community. The transportation system must also adapt to changing community needs, including impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, while supporting the city's health and economy.
