City seeks volunteers for new Transportation Committee

Last updated: May 1, 2023

The City of Burnaby is seeking volunteers to help shape the future of transportation in our community by serving on Burnaby’s new Transportation Committee. 

This is a great opportunity to gain experience in City government and help ensure transportation is equitable, sustainable and safe in our community. 

The new Transportation Committee replaces the former Traffic Safety Committee, expanding the scope to not only address traffic safety but to also include all modes of transportation under the City’s authority.

This committee will advise City Council on strategic transportation issues, including the development of Burnaby’s transportation network, transportation policy, active transportation improvement projects, traffic management upgrades and road safety improvements. 

Committee membership will include:
•    two City Councillors; 
•    one representative from the Burnaby Board of Education; 
•    one representative from the Burnaby Board of Trade; 
•    three citizen representatives; and
•    four non-voting members representing HUB Cycling, ICBC, the Burnaby RCMP and the School District 41 Parent Advisory Committee.

Committee members are appointed for a three-year term expiring in December of the third year served. Members can be re-appointed to serve one subsequent term.
