City councillors have taken the next step in an ambitious but controversial move that could one day see drivers paying tolls to enter Vancouver’s downtown core.
Council voted in favour Tuesday night of pursuing the Climate Emergency Action Plan, a 371-page report that recommends road pricing, among other things.
Transport pricing will be a fee for vehicles to drive into the Metro Core. Details such as cost, boundaries, and time of day when the fee will be in effect, will be decided through further research and engagement with residents and businesses.
The area would be bordered by the Vancouver waterfront, Burrard Street, Clark Drive and West 16th Avenue.
