  • 2015 Lower Fraser Valley Air Emissions Inventory and Forecast, March 2018
    Thousands of sources release air contaminants every day. To keep track of these emissions, Metro Vancouver compiles an "emission inventory" every five years. The inventory describes the types and amounts of contaminants released into the air by different types of sources.
  • Non-Road Diesel Engine Regulatory Program
    The non-road diesel engine regulation will help to reduce harmful emissions from construction equipment (like excavators, backhoes and graders) that are often operated close to where people live, work and play
  • Mode Share Data
    TransLink conducts a regional trip diary survey every 3-5 years, providing a snapshot of passenger travel patterns and tracking the weekday trip-making behaviour of a random sample of local residents on a 24-hour basis. It is the most comprehensive source of information on overall travel patterns in the region.
  • Vehicle Kilometers Travelled
    Using travel diary data, Metro Vancouver estimates the daily vehicle kilometres travelled (VKT) of Metro Vancouver residents. These values can be normalized using total population counts to further estimate weekday VKT per capita. VKT estimates are based only on auto driver trips where the trip distance could be calculated.
