Metro Vancouver’s draft Climate 2050 Transportation Roadmap lays out 48 actions organized under six strategic areas with the goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions from all forms of transportation while making the region’s transportation networks more resilient. It includes ways to reduce driving through active transportation and public transit, accelerate the transition to electric vehicles and reduce marine, rail, aviation and heavy truck emissions.
Preliminary modelling indicates that completing these actions could potentially reduce greenhouse gas emissions from all transportation sectors by 30% below 2010 levels by 2030, and by more than 85% by 2050. Emissions from light-duty vehicles could drop by more than 40% by 2030 and be eliminated by 2050.

The draft document is one of 10 roadmaps that will guide policies and collective actions to transition Metro Vancouver to a carbon neutral region by 2050. An updated roadmap will be brought before the Metro Vancouver Board of Directors for endorsement this fall.
