Pictures from Waterloo Rapid Transit

One of the interesting things on the Waterloo Rapid Transit website are mock-ups of what the streetscape will look like with light rail. When you look at the densities in the pictures and that Waterloo region has a population that is similar to Surrey, you can almost see something like this on King George Highway or 104th Avenue. Also interesting is that most of these road going on a lane diet to accommodate light rail.
