Westside Mobility Strategy
The Westside Mobility Strategy was a study of the transportation needs and conditions for people who walk, ride a bicycle, drive a vehicle and deliver freight in Vancouver neighborhoods and industrial areas west of I-5. Phase 1 analyzed how people, vehicles and freight move throughout the street network and the conditions in the street right-of-way. Phase 2 developed the recommendations and implementation strategy to guide the implementation of improvements for the current and future mobility needs of neighborhoods balanced with the mobility needs for economic growth of downtown and industrial land uses.
The Westside Mobility Strategy Final Report was unanimously adopted by resolution at the July 18, 2016 meeting of Vancouver City Council. The final report includes:
- A brief history and description of the land use context for the westside transportation network
- The relationship to previous planning studies
- A summary of the project planning process
- Project findings and implications from the existing conditions mobility analysis and travel demand modelling
- The preferred mobility concept for Vancouver’s westside
- Mobility network goals, recommendations, proposed projects and priorities
