We need your help for our grassroots efforts to spread information about the referendum and encourage the many people who support cycling, walking and transit to vote Yes.
We will also be using this opportunity to connect with people who support cycling improvements and complete streets in their communities and engage them in Provincial cycling issues including funding, education and changes to the Motor Vehicle Act.Become a volunteer
Imagine that within the next ten years, you, your family and friends can safely and comfortably cycle across the region to work, school, shopping and transit as well as for recreation and exercise. And, when you would rather take transit, there is a bus or a train nearby arriving within a few short minutes.
A Yes vote will bring improvements including:
✔️ 2700km of cycling routes including 300km of paths and lanes separated from traffic
✔️ $131 million invested in cycling over ten years
✔️ Upgrades to the BC Parkway and Central Valley Greenway
✔️ Investing in North Shore Spirit Trail, Evergreen Bikeway and routes parallel to rapid transit lines in Surrey and Langley
✔️ Improved cycling and walking access to transit stations
✔️ Much improved cycling and walking facilities on a new 4 lane Pattullo Bridge
✔️ Millennium Line Extension to Arbutus, LRT in Surrey, 25% increase in Bus Service, 11 B-lines, increased capacity on the Expo Line
All for only around 35 cents a day per household.
You can vote via mail-in ballot between March 16 and May 29.
