Transit Vote Burnaby: Congestion, Health, and Livability, Mar 10

March 10, 2015

A congested transportation system has consequences for emissions, health, and livability. Join us to hear from experts on how these subjects relate to the transit referendum.

Metro Vancouver's road network and transit system are currently strained and regional growth will ensure that this trend continues into the future. But what are the economic and health costs of congestion? Join us at SFU Burnaby to hear from two experts as they describe the current situation as well as what to expect in the future. With the transit referendum on the line, a number of potential transportation improvements could help to alleviate stress on the road network as well as offer more sustainable commuting options for residents. Find out what these transit options have to offer. This public dialogue is co-presented by Carbon Talks and Moving in a Livable Region.

Guiding questions for this dialogue include:

  • What is the state of the art research from the C.D. Howe institute on Metro Vancouver's congestion costs
  • What are the health and congestion costs implications of inaction?

Join us for a free public dialogue:

When: Tuesday, March 10 from 12:00 - 1:15 PM
