Gateway Program Home


The Gateway Program was established by the Province of British Columbia in 2003 to improve the movement of people, goods and transit throughout Metro Vancouver by providing efficient transportation choices and better connections.

The goals for the Gateway Program are to:

  • Reduce congestion and travel times
  • Move people, goods and transit more efficiently
  • Improve access to key economic gateways through improved links between ports, industrial areas, railways, the airport and border crossings
  • Improve safety and reliability on the region’s road network
  • Improve quality of life in communities by keeping regional traffic on regional roads instead of local streets
  • Reduce vehicle emissions by reducing congestion-related idling
  • Better connect transit, cycling and pedestrian networks
