Ottawa, Ontario – A section of Vancouver’s oldest and busiest transit corridors has received funding from the federal government to improve reliability and improve safety. 88 Blocks – Art on Main is a transportation infrastructure that is the first art showcase for the Main Street Transit and Pedestrian Priority Project.
“The government of Canada is investing in public transit projects that improve commuting times,” said Andrew Saxton, Member of Parliament for North Vancouver. “This federal contribution shows that we can deliver results that are good for our public transit users, create jobs, and boost our economy.”
The $6 million Main Street Transit and Pedestrian Priority Project will improve service reliability, reduce travel times and bus delays, shorten pedestrian crossing times, and improve pedestrian and cyclist safety. The public art is one of many measures in a broad package of improvements.
