Our citizens are concerned that traffic is increasing faster everywhere – on freeways, major streets and in neighborhoods – faster than we provide connections and capacity. As a result congestion and pollution are worse. Specifically, they would like a more complete and balanced transportation system, better more attractive bicycle and pedestrian connections between residential neighborhoods and shopping districts or employment centers, and better transit connections with more frequent service. According to multiple surveys, over 65% would like light rail service in Vancouver.
We will develop a safe and balanced transportation system and encourage better transit service throughout the region, including high capacity transit connections to the Portland metropolitan area.
