Following on UDI’s Feb 26 seminar about the next anticipated rapid transit lines in Surrey and Vancouver, we are pleased to present Part 2 of The Future of Transit series.
We all agree that expanding the region’s rapid transit network is a great idea, but how are we going to fund it?
The Mayors’ Council has proposed five funding options: a vehicle registration fee, a sales tax, a carbon tax and road pricing. The final option, Land Value Capture, could directly impact the development industry.
Join us as we discuss the latest funding options with:
Richard Walton - Mayor, District of North Vancouver and Chair, Mayors’ Council on Regional Transportation
Robert Paddon - Executive Vice President, Strategic Planning & Public Affairs, TransLink
Mike Harcourt - Former Premier of BC and Chair, University of British Columbia’s Regional Sustainability Council
