  • 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.

  • Challenges to the Region
    • Population aging and growing
    • Growth in outer communities
    • Dispersed employment
    • Air quality and vehicle emissions
    • Rising fuel prices
  • The Land Use & Transportation Connection
  • Transport 2040 Goals
    Greenhouse gas emissions from transportation are aggressively reduced, in support of federal, provincial and regional targets
    Most trips are by transit, walking and cycling
    The majority of jobs and housing in the region are located along the Frequent Transit Network
    • Traveling in the region is safe, secure, and accessible for everyone
    • Economic growth and efficient goods movement are facilitated through effective management of the transportation network.
    • Funding for TransLink is stable, sufficient, appropriate and influences transportation choices.
  • Transport 2040 Strategies
    Make early investments that encourage development of communities designed for transit, cycling, and walking
    Optimize the use of the region's transportation assets and keep them in good repair
    Build and operate a safe, secure, and accessible transportation system
    Diversify revenue sources and pursue new and innovative ways to fund transportation

  • Off Track to Meet Provincial Targets
  • Development of 2012 Supplement
    Needs
    Increased transit service hours to meet future needs
    Crowding, service quality and growth areas
    Outstanding commitments remain including regional commitment to Evergreen Line rapid transit
    Project is underway and Province requires confirmation of regional share of funding
    Leveraging federal commitments over $400 million
    Public desire to make investments that support progress toward goals of Transport 2040
  • Development of 2012 Supplement
    • Supplemental Plan for 2011 (“Moving Forward”) submitted to Mayors’ Council in 2010
    • Mayors’ Council declined to vote on it, because investments were solely funded by an increase in property tax.
    • Mayors’ Council and the Province have recently agreed (MoU) on a funding strategy in support of the Moving Forward package of investments being put forward for consideration.
  • Funding “Moving Forward”
    New Revenue
    Fuel Tax: 2¢/litre increase
    AND:
    A property tax increase, implemented in 2013, that would amount to approximately $23 per year on the average residential property,
    or;
    A new long-term revenue source that the province and the Mayors’ Council would approve that, if implemented before the end of 2012, would replace the property tax portion of the total funding package.
  • Moving Forward Funding Sources
  • Benefits of Moving Forward
    • Allows time to explore other funding options under MoU
    • Provides funding solution for Evergreen Line
    • Retains Federal funding
    • Moves region towards Transport 2040
    • Region-wide investments in transit, cycling and roads,
    Accessibility and capacity improvements at stations
    Addresses overcrowding and pass ups

    July 20, 2011
  • Canada Line: 2009
    Canada Line
    • Canada’s first rapid transit line to connect downtown with the airport
    • Enabled by private-public partnership
    • Completed under budget
    • Opened 3 months ahead of schedule
    • Currently over 110,000 boardings daily
  • Road Pricing
    What is it?
    • Charging for the use of an asset, be it a road or bridge, which would previously have been free to the user.
    • Aims to encourage the driver to consider the total cost of their journey and, as a result, alter behaviour to:
    • make journey at a different time,
    • combine journeys,
    • take different routes,
    • switching mode, or
    • not taking the journey.
  • Typical Objectives
