2013 Surrey Transportation Lecture Program

I attended the first joint SFU/City of Surrey Transportation Lecture Program back in 2010. The lecture series is now in its 4th year. I you have the time, I highly recommend that you sign up for the program. I received the following announcement from the program.

About the Lecture Program

The Surrey Transportation Lecture Program is co-sponsored by the City of Surrey and SFU City Program. This annual course is a comprehensive introduction to transportation in the Lower Mainland, with a particular focus on Surrey. You’ll learn about a range of transportation issues, including corridor planning, the relationship between transportation and land use, and the operation and management of our transportation systems.

Guest speakers include senior staff from City of Surrey, TransLink, Metro Vancouver, ICBC and others. The program also features several field trips, including site visits on a chartered TransLink bus as well as an interactive walking tour of City Centre. A course overview is attached to this email.

Classes are on Wednesdays, September 11 through November 13, from 6:30–9:30 pm (no class on October 16). There is also a half-day site visit on Saturday October 19 from 9 am–1 pm.
