Waterfront Transportation Network Study

We’re conducting a study of the transportation network in the Waterfront area to help us better understand how we can support continued growth and activity from a transportation perspective.

For the purpose of this study, the Waterfront area includes properties south of Esplanade, East of St. George’s and West of Waterfront Park:

Waterfront study area

Last year, we made significant changes to the transportation network in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Some of these changes include:

  • Allocating space to support temporary patios and parklets
  • Allocating space for contactless curbside pick-up / drop-off zones
  • The creation of pedestrian-only streets like Wallace Mews

The Waterfront area transportation network includes streets, multi-use paths, and curb space that support a significant level of activity on a day-to-day basis from a variety of modes, including:

  • Pedestrians and cyclists
  • Delivery and service vehicles
  • TransLink buses
  • General purpose traffic
  • Tour buses, taxis, and ride-hailing vehicles

This study will examine how well the current network serves all modes of transportation and help us understand how to make it safer and more efficient for everyone. Part of the study included an online survey in November/December 2021. Thank you to everyone who provided feedback about living, working or visiting this area of the waterfront. Your input will help to inform future changes to the transportation network in this neighbourhood. Learn more on our Let’s Talk project page.
