      As Metro Vancouver’s transportation authority, TransLink delivers a wide range of services and programs across a service area of 1,800 square kilometres to provide for the transportation needs of Metro Vancouver residents and businesses. Of the world’s major cities, only Vancouver, London and Paris have integrated their public transit and road network under one central authority with its own revenue stream. TransLink has a combined workforce of over 7,500 employees and manages a total asset portfolio valued at $9 billion, which includes buses, trains, stations, track, bridges, facilities, structures, and systems. For the 2.4 million people who live in Metro Vancouver, TransLink is an essential contributor to their quality of life, work and play.

      TransLink is in an exciting period of growth and development as it rolls out a historic investment of $9 billion in expansion plans as part of its 10-Year Vision for Metro Vancouver’s future; providing more transit, better roads, safer cycling and pedestrian access — for everyone. With new Federal and Provincial funding commitments, TransLink is poised to expand its world renowned SkyTrain system to develop the region’s first light rail service, complete upgrades to the Millennium and Expo Lines’ infrastructure to significantly increase capacity by 60%, and increase bus and rail services across the region to meet the demands of Metro Vancouver’s growing population and booming increase in ridership. The SkyTrain rail system is the backbone of the regional transit system with massive residential and commercial development activity continuing to be focused around the lines. The 10-Year Vision propels TransLink forward in addressing the region’s transportation needs, especially as transit ridership continues to grow at record levels and as we anticipate another million Metro Vancouver residents and 600,000 new jobs over the next 30 years.
