The It’s Time project is looking at how to improve Metro Vancouver’s road transportation network using something called decongestion charging. Decongestion charging is already making travel easier for people in many other major cities around the world such as Singapore, Stockholm, and London. Here in Metro Vancouver we have been paying for road use through the fuel tax and the recently removed bridge tolls. Unfortunately, the way charging has been structured in the region isn’t actually addressing congestion where it’s most needed, wasn’t always fair, and isn’t generating the revenue we need to upgrade and maintain our transportation system.

Starting in November there will be many opportunities to add your voice to the conversation. Sign up to receive notifications for upcoming events and regular updates on the It’s Time project.
