Thoughts about the relationships between transport and the urban area it serves

It’s Time to Get on Board

from the Youtube web page

Tired of being passed up? On an average day, there are hundreds of thousands of trips daily on Metro Vancouver’s public transit system. Whether you take the Expo Line from King George to Waterfront, the 99 B-Line from Commercial to UBC, the SeaBus from Lonsdale Quay to Downtown Vancouver, ride a bike down 41st Avenue, or drive your vehicle over the Port Mann Bridge every morning, you use Vancouver’s extensive transportation network.

However, the current public transit system lacks three key things: the ability to handle current capacity, lack of service options to rural and suburban areas, and sustainable funding to provide for future growth.

Get OnBoard BC believes in a better future for Metro Vancouver’s public transit system. We believe that the key to improving and expanding public transit is in developing a sustainable and fair funding formula.

Our documentary takes a look at the current fiscal and political issues facing Metro Vancouver’s public transit system, and why Metro Vancouver needs sustainable regional transit funding in order to grow our region’s economy, promote ecological and social sustainability, and provide for a growing region.

Will you get OnBoard?
