Public transit service levels in the Lower Mainland have remained practically unchanged over the past seven years. In that same period demand has soared.
Metro Vancouver residents will be asked to vote on a 0.5 per cent hike in B.C.'s Provincial Sales Tax to fund new transit projects, in a referendum this March. The referendum is seeking a public decision on the transportation funding measures identified by the Metro Vancouver Mayor's Council. The Mayor's funding plan advocates for more transit routes, more buses and HandyDART vans, more options for cyclists, and increased service all over the region.
Metro Vancouver Alliance members committed to campaigning vigorously for a Yes vote on this referendum. We are campaigning to get Metro Vancouver residents’ transit needs met.
As part of this campaign, we invite you and members of your community to our second Transit Forum on Tuesday, February 3rd.
If you live or work on the North Shore we encourage you to come. We'll be discussing the upcoming transit referendum and working in groups to build relationships in the community and develop strategies to ensure that the referendum passes, and transit in the region receives increased funding.
It's important to everyone in Metro Vancouver that this referendum passes - join us and help make this happen! Spread the word - download a poster.
