In 2014, the Mayors of Metro Vancouver endorsed light rail for South of Fraser because of its:   

  • Transportation benefits
  • Fit with the City’s long term community plans,
  • Relative affordability compared to alternatives.
 

The Project

Over the next 30 years, Surrey will welcome 300,000 new residents. As the city grows, so do our transportation needs. LRT provides a proven, high-quality, efficient and environmentally friendly means to move people that meets our long term needs.      

Our proposed LRT network spans 27 kms with two lines and approximately 19 stops linking residents with where they need to go. See the map.

Public Consultation

The project has been informed by consultation with the public and stakeholders. TransLink led the first two phases of consultation in 2010 and 2011.

  • Phase 1 (March 2010 to October 2010)

TransLink hosted 10 meetings and workshops for stakeholders to provide input on the transit opportunities in Surrey. This information along with a comprehensive technical analysis was gathered and shared with the public for feedback. Read the 2010 consultation summary

  • Phase 2 (May and June 2011)

The study team presented preliminary concepts and an evaluation of 10 design alternatives for input. Based on nearly 400 feedback questionnaires and more than 750 comments from four community workshops, key design concepts were confirmed and refined. Read the 2011 consultation summary.

  • Phase 3 (being developed)

The next phase of public consultation is being developed and will launch once additional technical work is complete. Phase 3 will focus on community integration, which will look at elements like access to stations, roadway changes to accommodate the new lines and components of station design.
