Transit Vote Surrey: Rapid Transit for Rapid Growth
Surrey is one of Canada's fastest growing cities and has major transportation needs. With the transit referendum around the corner, what's at stake?
Surrey is expected to nearly double its population and number of jobs between 2006 and 2041. However, as a city on the rise, it's already beginning to feel the growing pains of congestion and a strained transit network. The proposed transportation improvements for Surrey include a new light rail transit system through to the Langleys as well as improved bus service. The purpose of this dialogue is to explore the transit referendum through the lens of Surrey's business and student community. Join us at SFU Surrey Campus for this public dialogue co-presented by Carbon Talks and Moving in a Livable Region.
Guiding questions for this dialogue include:
- With the transit and transportation referendum just around the corner, what's at stake for Surrey?
- What is the relationship between Surrey's new downtown core and improved transit and transportation?
- What is the business community's perspective on the transit improvements and revenue tool (0.5% regional sales tax)?
