VANCOUVER, B.C. — TransLink is now pushing for a fuel tax in the wake of the death of its plan to levy all vehicles running the Greater Vancouver Area’s roads.
At a meeting scheduled for Friday, TransLink will consider asking for a two-cent-a-litre gas tax in Greater Vancouver. The exact amount charged on diesel wasn’t immediately available.
TransLink is facing a budget disaster if it doesn’t figure out how to fund its operations and projects. Its levy plan received widespread criticism before the premier refused to sign it into law.
TransLink is the B.C. government organization in charge of managing the Greater Vancouver Area’s traffic and transit problems
