Claire Havens on Road Pricing in Metro Vancouver

December 02, 2013

The Vancouver Sun has published an op-ed by SFU Centre for Dialogue's Claire Havens. Havens’s article discusses various road pricing strategies that would enhance our multi-modal network to improve mobility options, move goods efficiently, support local economic development, and have a positive impact on our health and the environment.

“We recruited people from across Metro Vancouver to participate in four dialogues, and selected participants first by their preferred mode of transportation, and then by demographics. The result was a room full of engaged drivers, cyclists, walkers, truckers and transit users, with wildly varying degrees of knowledge about our regional transportation system.”
