IMMEDIATE RELEASE – January 17, 2017 – Surrey, BC
SkyTrain for Surrey's campaign team is working to mobilize the over 1700 people who have signed in support of SkyTrain South-of-the-Fraser, encouraging all SkyTrain supporters to voice their opposition to the Surrey-Newton-Guildford LRT project at the upcoming TransLink consultations.
SkyTrain for Surrey is opposing the Surrey-Newton-Guildford LRT project as part of its overall campaign, urging that the LRT project instead be built as a Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system at a lower cost.
Bus Rapid Transit in dedicated lanes would offer the same travel time benefits as LRT and could also run seamlessly to White Rock Centre and Coquitlam Centre, reaching more people and connecting more places.
Extending SkyTrain to Langley will create a high speed backbone to our transit system. A modern bus rapid transit system that connects to SkyTrain will reach and serve more people, faster and with greater efficiency than street-level light rail between Newton and Guildford.

SkyTrain for Surrey is a local grassroots organization calling for a SkyTrain and Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) network instead of the currently-proposed on-street Light Rail system in Surrey. Our campaign has called on decision-makers to build the Langley Extension of the SkyTrain Expo Line, in conjunction with an extension of the 96 B-Line to Coquitlam Centre and White Rock as a Bus Rapid Transit system.
