Vancouver Moves is a plan to guide the City's future transportation system.

Vancouver Moves is an in-depth planning process that will explore transportation needs and priorities in partnership with Vancouver residents, employees and visitors. The project 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, Vancouver Moves will identify recommended policies, programs and projects to guide the City's transportation future.


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.


Other ways to engage

In addition to the Online Open House, this website offers multiple ways to share your transportation ideas with the City. Use the tabs below to tell us your transportation story, share your ideas, ask a question, or to take a brief transportation survey.

    Limited Commute

    by VCR64, 3 days ago

    I reside in Vancouver and work outside city limits, and had considered ride transit until the pandemic. Since March 2020 I've been working from home around 75-80% of the time. While transit may be an efficient means of transportation, due to current conditions, I wouldn't consider using any transit method now in order to protect myself from multiple shared surfaces & exposure risks. Also, I've heard that an old hotel near the Van Mall is going to be used for the homeless, so the bus station there that I would be using I imagine is going to be overrun soon... Continue reading

    Trim overgrown vegetation that's taking over sidewalks

    by Rachel R, about 2 months ago
    I live in Vancouver and walk frequently on West Mill Plain and also Grand Boulevard. I enjoy this part of town, and the hills, but I notice lots of overgrown Tree of Heaven and English Ivy crowding into the sidewalk, forcing pedestrians to walk on the outside edge. It's a safety hazard. I can't imagine trying to use a wheelchair on those areas.

    But this should be a cheap fix : )

    Auto driver

    by NW Woman, 2 months ago

    I drive wherever I go for several reasons. Driving conditions are better since the roads have been fixed. I do drive an energy efficient car. I care about the environment. Taking over roads for bikes is not the answer. How many people drive all year compared to how many people year bike all year? With Covid-19 on the rise mass transit is not the safest way to travel either.

    I-5 Bridge

    by Bombadil, 2 months ago

    I have lived in Clark County since the early 1990s, and have been, nearly the whole time, observing regular debates over the replacement of our now 100-year-old bridge. Traffic thirty years ago was bad, and it hasn't gotten better in the interim. I understand that the investment required makes it a decision that should not be taken lightly, but it starts to feel like we are dragging our feet, 20-some-odd years into the discussion.

    In the early part of this new century, we had a plan with strong support on both sides of the river (the CRC), that was forward-thinking... Continue reading

    traveling over bridge

    by Jeanineftl, 2 months ago

    We have lived in Vancouver for many years. in that time traffic on I-5 and later 205 has increased to the point that getting to work in Portland not to mention getting home has become increasingly difficult. Areas in Vancouver are to be avoided when ever possible during high traffic time, most notably, include Mill Plain near 205 the orchards area on 117th. I would use bus or rail transport if it ran at more convenient times and frequency. Right now no one is going anywhere.

    One Car Family

    by annemariebarber, 2 months ago
    Several years ago, my husband had to quit a job in Portland because he was not able to consistently make it there on time. We are a one car family, we do not have the budget for a second vehicle. I needed to keep our car during the day to get my daughter to daycare and back, so my husband was dependent on the bus to make it to Portland. But the bus didn't start running early enough in the morning, and took too long, to get him to Portland on time for his early morning shift. Vancouver/PDX transit does... Continue reading

    Public Transit in Vancouver

    by sara.e.hitch, 2 months ago
    I use public transportation to get to and from work, shopping, church, etc. It would be very helpful to have complete sidewalks and better lighting in the Fourth Plain and Rose Village neighborhoods since C-Tran refuses to provide adequate service in these neighborhoods.

    Transportation in Vancouver

    I rely on the transportation to meet my daily needs, including getting to and from home, work, shopping, and other necessities.
