We all know there is a serious transportation problem in Greater Vancouver.
bridges and highways are being used well beyond their designed capacities.
Public transit is limited or completely unavailable in many areas.
Vehicles sit idling for hours, spewing toxins into the atmosphere
while waiting for bottlenecks to clear. Highway 1 is Canada's largest
parking lot. Trains tie up entire communities.
BCís local and provincial transportation authorities are working on
major changes and additions to the regionís transportation infrastructure.
