We continue to salt and sand bus loops and SkyTrain stations, but please use caution in these areas and remember to dress warmly in anticipation of potential delays.

Expect extra crowding on some routes To provide improved traction, many articulated buses may be switched with standard, 40 foot buses. This will mean some modified service, with increased crowding and the possibility of passups in some areas.

HandyDART is currently operating regular service, but is experiencing delays in the Tri-City and Vancouver areas.

Expo and Millennium Lines are running consistently, but with reduced frequency due to the need to have staff on each train to watch for weather-related problems on the tracks. Please be prepared to wait longer on the platform between trains.

Regional Transportation Strategy

The Regional Transportation Strategy is a long-range plan that explains how people will live, work, and move around in Metro Vancouver today and in the future. Our current plan, the Regional Transportation Strategy (RTS) Strategic Framework helps guide our transportation decisions to 2045. The priority actions we’ve started to deliver on are detailed in the 10-Year Vision, which was developed by the Mayors' Council in 2014. Those actions are being delivered in phases as funding becomes available.

The Phase 1 Investment Plan was approved in November 2016 and began implementation in 2017. The Phase 2 Investment Plan was approved on June 28, 2018.

We are now turning our attention to what comes next. 

We want to know how we can best meet the needs of residents and our communities over the next 30 years. To do that, we’ll be reaching out to people throughout Metro Vancouver to talk about the future. With your input, we’ll complete a thorough update to the existing long-range transportation plan.

Opportunities for you to participate in the update process will be coming in 2019. Stay tuned!
