  • Senior Contributions and New Ridership Revenue total 65%New Regional RevenueFuel Tax: $0.02/litre increase AND:A new long-term revenue source that the province and the Mayors’ Council would approve, or if not implemented before the end of 2012, A property tax increase, implemented in 2013 and 2014 that would generate $29 million from all classes in 2013, equating to approximately $23 per year on the average residential property
  • This map shows the regional nature of these investments.
  • This advances mobility by increasing transit usage by 30 million, improving safety and efficiency for all road users, and reducing automobile usage and greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Moving Forward gets us on the path to longer term regional objectives by increasing mobility options, supporting complete communities, and improving transit, cycling, and walking mode shares. Under our Base Plan, we’ll fall behind. For example, the regional transit target of 17% by 2020 could be achievable with the investment track provided by this plan.
  • P3Canada Line and Golden Ears Bridge developed through P3 processes.In BC, all capital projects with a provincial contribution of $50 million or more will be considered first by Partnerships BC to be built as public-private partnerships (PPPs) unless there is a compelling reason to do otherwise. Previously the threshold for consideration as a PPP was $20 million (source: http://www.partnershipsbc.ca/documents/IB-50m-cap-std-update-03nov09.pdf).Road Pricing and TollingGEB has facility tolls.
