Property tax is a major source of revenue for TransLink. In fact, property tax represented about 40% of the taxation-based revenue that TransLink received in 2013. This money is used to fund both roads and transit service in Metro Vancouver.
The Government of BC collects various statistics from local governments in the province. One of the things that I was curious about was the amount of property tax revenue collected for TransLink in 2014 by municipality. I have presented this information in the following pie chart.
