Surrey Mayor wants Light Rail over SkyTrain

This is a bit of old news (March 14th), but as was posted on the civic Surrey blog, Surrey Mayor Dianna Watts supports at-grade rail (that’s code for Interurban) over SkyTrain!
I for one am a firm believer that instead of SkyTrain expansion in Surrey we should be looking at At Grade Rail. At Grade Rail is significantly cheaper, easier to build and much more aesthetically pleasing than Sky Train. Surrey cannot wait until 2020 for improved rail transit. At Grade Rail can be completed much faster. I have great confidence in the potential of At Grade Rail, and I am currently having City staff analyze this option so that we can move it forward.
Read the whole statement on the City of Surrey's website.
