"Can Mobility Pricing Reduce Traffic Congestion in Metro Vancouver?"

Download Presentation

Remember when there wasn’t a radio station with the jingle: “All traffic all the time?” Traffic congestion in Greater Vancouver has been a negative accompaniment to the growth of the region’s population and economy and some would say poor regional urban and transportation planning.  The anticipated final report by the Mobility Pricing Independent Commission may provide some guidance on policy options to address congestion.  Will their analysis help get us on a path to reduce congestion or be discussed and deferred to future political leaders to grapple with?  Professor Olewiler will explore the viability of types of mobility pricing for the region and why any form of mobility pricing must be linked to a regional growth strategy.
