Evergreen Line Will Proceed

Metro Vancouver mayors have voted in favour of a transit plan that includes expanded services and the Evergreen Line.

“A positive vote means the Evergreen Line will proceed.” – Minister Lekstrom

The provincial government is committing $583 million to funding the Evergreen Line. Translink will provide $400 million and the federal government will contribute $417 million.  The Evergreen Line will relieve congestion, improve air quality and link Port Moody and Coquitlam to the SkyTrain system.  Over 8,000 direct and indirect jobs will be created during construction.
