Accelerated Mode Shift

We're rapidly adding transportation alternatives that increase opportunities to walk, cycle and roll, and access efficient public transit

High-quality sidewalks, urban trails and transit priority measures enable and encourage people to choose options to car travel, reduce carbon emissions and enhance community health. So we're accelerating construction of these active-transportation and transit-priority options.

Our goal is to ensure that by 2040, Burnaby neighbourhoods are walkable, cyclable and transit-supported. By 2050, we hope to see 75% of trips made on public transit and by active transportation, with no increase in vehicle-kilometres travelled. The transportation system will not only move people and goods between destinations, it will provide places for people to meet and participate in city life. Our transportation system will be balanced and inclusive, offering accessible and safe mobility in support of a healthy, green, prosperous and connected community.


We are accelerating construction of active-transportation options, such as high-quality sidewalks, urban trails, and transit priority measures — to enable and encourage choosing options to private-vehicle travel, reduce carbon emissions and improve community health.
