As a partner in Get OnBoard, Sustainable SFU is interested in ideas for sustainably funding our public transit system in Metro Vancouver. Municipal governments have a significant role to play the conversation about funding transit. Translink’s Mayor’s Council includes representatives from across all of Metro Vancouver’s municipalities and are instrumental in approving plans and funding for transit. As Chair of the Mayor’s Council, Mayor Walton is in a powerful position to advocate for sustainable transit funding.

This Carbon Talk offers an opportunity to hear Mayor Walton’s views on funding transit and what the Mayor’s Council is doing to ensure the continued operation and expansion of Metro Vancouver’s sustainable transportation choices.

As a primary user of public transit, students have a strong voice in advocating for increased transit investment. Those students who are passionate about transportation issues will be very interested to hear Mayor Walton’s vision for the future of our region’s transportation network. Be sure toregister for the event.
