Like many businesses, TransLink was forced to think differently to keep our region moving over the past few years, adapting to some of the most significant challenges of our time. Now, TransLink is changing the way they do business to expand and diversify the essential services that our communities and businesses rely on every day, all while tackling the climate emergency, persistent affordability issues, and the ongoing impacts of COVID-19.
With ambitious and innovative plans that will shape the future of transportation in Metro Vancouver, such as the recently launched Climate Action Strategy, Real Estate Development Program, Customer Experience Action Plan, and the targets laid out in the 10-Year Priorities, TransLink is making strides forward for a better tomorrow by putting sustainability, reconciliation, and inclusion at the forefront.
Join TransLink CEO Kevin Quinn to learn about how the future of transportation in Metro Vancouver will create significant opportunities for residents and businesses throughout the region.
