VANCOUVER, B.C. — TransLink has launched an online consultation process that lets the public weigh in on the transportation authority’s future transport plans.

Instead of having to attend public consultations to discuss the future of transportation in the Greater Vancouver Area, people can now surf the web and make suggestions via the Internet.

The Web site will be updated to provide people with information about transportation planning challenges facing the region and will offer a number of possible solutions for consideration. The public can also suggest which projects should be top priority and can even recommend how to raise the necessary funding.

Then, visitors to the site can compare their own transportation visions to those submitted by other people.

TransLink says it will use feedback provided through the site when developing a 10-year transportation plan that will be presented to the Board of Directors in early 2004. The site will be available until Oct. 31 and is now online at
