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

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.


Learn more about transportation today

On November 12 2020, the City launched an Online Open House to share an overview of Vancouver Moves, information about the current transportation system, and to give our community an opportunity to provide feedback to help shape the City's future transportation plans. The public comment period for this open house is now closed, but you can still visit the Online Open House to learn more about transportation today.

Click the "Launch" button below to visit!

The City is committed to an inclusive process, so hard copy 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.


Share your feedback

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.

    I can't be the only one who still drives a car

    by Bussesandbikesarentfunintherain, 9 days ago
    I've read a few of the recent stories and I'm really surprised that no one seems to be driving a car anywhere. Maybe I'm an outlier but I'm single, live alone, don't have kids, and work across the river. Prior to the expansion of I-205 I used to spend 1.5-2 hours a day just trying to get to work and back home (but thanks to the expansion/rework of the 205 onramps and offramps it cut 15-30 minutes off my daily commute). Taking a crowded bus that's just getting stuck in the same traffic I would be sitting in, having to... Continue reading

    All Vancouver plans uselss

    by Kennethharrison, 9 days ago
    Let's face it after the hacking useing hightech in transportation make us more vulnerable. So think about that.vbut more important is fact all these projects still use neanderthal engineering and environmentally damaging practice of useing asphalt. Asphalt needs to be band and require all companies that buil and fix the roads guerrentee their work for 100 years that way we stop wasting taxpayers money for constant road repairs

    Pedestrian crossing lights

    by JulieS, 9 days ago
    My job as courier puts me out and about everyday and everyday I see people not knowing how the pedestrian crossing lights that go yellow, solid red, flashing red work. People will stop when solid red and then not move when it is clear and flashing red, but much more dangerous are the people that just blow through the flashing red! There are signs that have been posted to educate but they have failed. I think the simple green, yellow, red lights would work better because people already understand them.

    Driven by the Sun | Never Charge Technology

    by Wolfsburg Warehouse, 17 days ago

    One of the key features that sets Aptera apart from other electric vehicles is a unique combination of solar and electric power that will fuel your ride without frequent stops at the charging station. In fact, depending on where you live and how much you drive, you may never need to charge Aptera at all.

    Need Complete Sidewalks & Bus Service

    by sara.e.hitch, 18 days ago
    Many areas around the city do not have complete sidewalks, which makes it difficult for those of us who have to walk to/from the bus stop, store, home, work, etc. It is a safety hazard being forced to walk in the street where some people would rather hit pedestrians than to obey traffic laws when sidewalks are unavailable. The city, county, and state codes need to be updated to be pedestrian friendly and to make clear that it is no longer acceptable not to have sidewalks just because it wasn't required at the time the building/house was built and circumstances...

    Watch this man ride his electric wheel motor.

    by Wolfsburg Warehouse, 18 days ago

    Watch this man ride his electric wheel motor. The perfect wheel for beginner to intermediate while still being fun for extreme riders.

    Over 100 mile range at speeds over 50 mph on this extreme electric unicycle.

    Think about the kids and walkers

    by Walker, 27 days ago
    I tend to walk or bike most places with my kids because we don't have a car during the day. It is very unpleasant to walk next to large streets with fast moving-traffic, much less cross them. Sometimes there are lights and crosswalks where they are needed; sometimes we have to go a couple of blocks out of our way to get to one. Sometimes the sidewalks and street-side plants are arranged in obviously bizarre ways, like over near the local Costco, where the sidewalk is next to the street and the plants separate the sidewalk from the parking lot...

    112th Ave Noise and Safety

    by JM98682, 3 months ago

    Good afternoon,

    A few years ago I wrote an email to the Vancouver Neighborhoods office describing the increase in auto racing and traffic noise on 112th Ave. At the time, the response received was that the city was not able to provide safety protection for our neighborhood. It is an established neighborhood and a safety wall was not an option, however 18th Street did receive a sound barrier wall. The city's fence line is about 12 feet from the street and 18 feet from our community of houses. The traffic noise reaches 90 decibels just outside our door and 70... Continue reading

    Bathrooms/Covered Bus Stops

    by kirkam, 4 months ago

    There are two things I wanted to touch on. I was homeless in 2019, and I know how hard it is to use the Vancouver bus system. Especially at the Vancouver Mall Transit Center, where I got My wallet stolen not once but 2 times.

    The main problem is that there is no public restrooms. In my opinion; public restrooms are essential and should be at all of the hubs. The drivers have their own bathrooms!!

    Also, Since we do get rain here in Vancouver and Southwest Washington. Every bus stop should be covered.
