Get OnBoard BC – We need transit now

The Get OnBoard campaign officially launches tomorrow,

Tuesday, September 25

There will be a press conference at McInnes Field at UBC from 11:00 – 11:30 am, and you are encouraged to show up to support transit!

This is a broad, coalition based campaign that involves students, residents, businesses and non-profit organizations across Metro Vancouver. There has been a shocking lack funding options proposed by the Provincial Government for transit in the region, and we are now at a critical moment in the future of transportation infrastructure in the region. Transit usage is at a record high level, demand is growing, and certain areas are already over capacity.

In the last decade, transit has been winning. But the Provincial Government has instead chosen to invest in and incentivize car infrastructure, particularly for the south of Fraser cities.

This needs to change, and now. It’s time to Get OnBoard BC!
