Transportation Plan Update

Transportation is an essential component of everyday life. The decisions that are made about the transportation system have long-lasting effects and consequences on how the City is built and how it functions. Transportation policies and projects can assist in creating a desirable City that is more environmentally, socially, and economically sustainable.

Get Involved!

The City of Burnaby is developing a new policy framework and direction for transportation. We’d like to hear what you think about this draft policy framework. Information gathered in the coming months will help us to develop a clearer vision for the new Burnaby Transportation Plan.

Public Survey

We want to hear from you! Share your thoughts on all or some of sections (Targets, Big Moves, Policies and Networks) that make up the policy framework.

Before you take the survey, we encourage you to read our Discussion Guide for more information and to stimulate ideas while responding to the survey.

The Bumaby Transportation Plan is the City's guiding policy document for transportation. It establishes the long-term vision for moving people, goods, and services in the City, while integrating and achieving environmental, social, economic, and community development goals.

The first edition of the Burnaby Transportation Plan was adopted in 1979 and the second in 1995. Much has changed in the City and region related to growth, demographics, lifestyles, climate change, transportation and housing affordability, health, space constraints, economic development, the sharing economy, technology, policy, public expectations, and limited funding resources.

A new Burnaby Transportation Plan will enable Burnaby to respond to these changes, plan for the challenges ahead, and coordinate investments to meet the City's strategic transportation goals. It provides an opportunity to think about the "big picture", consider innovative approaches, consider a broad range of solutions, and seek opportunities that best achieve multiple goals and objectives in alignment with the community's values.

Phase 1 of the Plan update (Setting a Direction - complete) established the Vision, Themes and Goals that will drive the Plan. Phase 2 (Building the Proposals – where we are now), will decide the Big Moves, set targets and establish the policies and networks needed to shape the City over the next 30 years.

The Burnaby Transportation Plan is a quick start action identified in Burnaby’s Climate Action Framework which moves us closer to achieving accelerated mode shift. Transitioning to carbon neutrality by 2050 will require action across all sectors in Burnaby — learn more about our plan to deliver on our climate commitment by visiting
