Given the plans for significant investments in our region's transit system it is critical that we ensure we are making the most of our investment dollars by maximizing the potential for commercial and residential development around this transit infrastructure. The Province’s Bill 47 is a step in the right direction mandating all projects within 200 metres of rapid transit stations in Metro Vancouver meet a minimum height of 20 stories and floor-area ratio of at least five, but does that go far enough?

Shannon Price joined the Ministry of Transportation & Infrastructure in 2019 and leads a dynamic and diverse team that is shaping the future of integrated transit development in the region.

Bryan Wong is a planner dedicated to enhancing the transit experience through human-centred design and planning. His 1.5 years of living in Japan has fuelled a passion for integrating the best practices from Tokyo and Japan into North American cities, specifically around user experience in transit systems and transitoriented developments.
