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. 

Automated

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.

TransLink is leading the development of Transport 2050, a strategy for transportation in Metro Vancouver for the next 30 years.

Through our largest ever public engagement, we heard from every part of the region. The people of Metro Vancouver stepped up to tell us about their values, priorities, and ideas for the future of transportation.

Phase 1 Engagement is now closed, but you can still check out Ideas Board submissions. This November we’ll report back on what we heard.

Phase 2 Engagement launches in spring 2020. We’ll be asking the public to help us consider the trade-offs between different transportation packages for the future. This information will shape what the new Regional Transportation Strategy looks like.
