Toll all bridges in and out of city and use funds to pay for rapid transit
The City supports the idea of road / congestion pricing, and bridge tolls are one possible implementation. A regional (as opposed to a city) approach might work best, given travel behaviour, patterns of movement, and jurisdictional issues. This lies outside City jurisdiction, so our role is limited to advocacy; changes to Provincial legislation are required.
This should be GVRD wide, not just in Vancouver, but it would certainly encourage carpooling at the very least.
this is a great idea, but i'm out of votes...putting tolls on all the major routes in and out of Vancouver and between other municipalities, and then dedicating them to transit and bike commuting improvements, would encourage folks to carpool or leave their car at home entirely.
Bikers will be the only ones to pay tolls inside or outside city of vanouver, most of you are free loaders that pay nothing, Motorist pay far more than their share when you do not!
