Advances in computing and sensors will likely put robots in the driver’s seat. Automated vehicles are already being tested in cities around the world. And big companies – from Google to GM – are banking on a future of self-driving vehicles. 

In just two decades, most passenger vehicles sold in North America could be capable of self-driving.

From our thermostats to our watches, it seems like all our devices are going online. In just a few years, vehicles of all types will be able to communicate with each other, potentially increasing safety and convenience.

By 2025, it is expected that all new road vehicles will be capable of communicating in some way. 

When the CEO of Shell started driving an electric car, even electric vehicle skeptics did a double-take. Cheaper to run, smaller carbon footprints – electric vehicles are going mainstream. That goes for bikes, cars, trucks, and buses.

By law, all new vehicles sold by 2040 in British Columbia must have zero tailpipe emissions – meaning that electric cars will soon be the norm.

Why own when you can rent? To get around, people are increasingly ditching car ownership for shared transportation services. Shared scooters, bikes, and cars are starting to become common in many places around the world.

Worth over $1 billion per year, Canada’s sharing economy is hot and heating up.

The Goals

We’ve envisioned a future where we all have real choices, that we can count on, that we can afford, and that we can safely enjoy. To connect us with the people and places that matter most.

Imagine Metro Vancouver in 2050

To deliver this vision, we need to create a transportation system over the next 30 years that supports a better way of moving.

That means rethinking how we use urban space and streets. 

Providing fast and frequent rapid transit service to more parts of the region. 

And taking advantage of new and emerging technologies that in some cases have not yet been imagined.  

Creating People-First Streets  

Making it safe and comfortable for you to walk, bike, or roll.

Enabling convenient access to car trips, without adding to congestion.
