Transportation Planning

Burnaby Transportation Plan Update

Our current Transportation Plan is over 20 years old. It’s time for an update, and to think about the “big picture” for the future of Burnaby’s transportation.

Centrally located within a growing urban region, the City of Burnaby faces significant challenges in maintaining a successful transportation system for the movement of people and goods, while minimizing impacts to the community. Transportation Planning plays an important role in implementing the City’s Official Community Plan and its strategic directions of creating a community that is more complete, environmentally aware, involved, with economic opportunity and increased transportation choice. The strategies for achieving this are contained in the Burnaby Transportation Plan.
