Surrey Rapid Transit Study Alternatives

TransLink has released a laundry-list of potential technologies (BRT, Light Rail, SkyTrain) and alignments for the Surrey Rapid Transit Study. While you can check out the details on their website, there is basically rapid transit of some form along King George Boulevard to White Rock, 104th Ave to Guildford, and Fraser Highway to Langley City. The fact that rapid transit is planning on going straight to Langley City is a testament to the work that the City of Surrey has done in the East Clayton Neighbourhood in Cloverdale and the City of Langley has done with their Downtown Master Plan. Missing from the plan is any transit options for the 200th Street corridor, but looking at the recent public hearing about adding density along 200th, I wonder if people in that part of town even want it?

Joe and I will be at the Community Consultation Workshop tomorrow from 6pm to 9pm at the Langley Hampton Inn. We will give you an update on the study Friday.
