TransLink’s Mobility Pricing Independent Commission has launched the second phase of its public engagement process for mobility pricing in Metro Vancouver.
The online engagement, which outlines several examples of how distance-based charges or congestion point charges could be introduced to combat traffic congestion in the region, will run from Feb. 26 to March 14.

The online engagement platform presents short videos, maps, and pros and cons of a series of examples including:
- Maintaining, reducing or eliminating the fuel tax
- Charging money based on distance driven
- Charging money at certain congestion points.
In the first phase more than 6,000 residents and stakeholders shared their ideas on congestion and principles such as fairness and affordability.
