SkyTrain for Surrey, not LRT!

CONCEPT: A next-generation TransLink articulated bus running on an upgraded #96 Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) line on King George Blvd! BRT in Surrey on the 96 B-Line route would meet demand for rapid transit without chronic overcrowding, and could feature comfortable waiting areas and median busways (pictured), traffic signal priority, all-door boarding, fare pre-payment, up to 3 times the current service frequency and a far more reliable service that, unlike LRT, isn't stopped when there's an accident blocking the right-of-way!


Letters we sent to Mayoral Candidates ask them to listen to stakeholders on Light Rail issues, and calls to review Light Rail benefits and downsides, if elected to office.

Better Surrey Rapid Transit (SkyTrain for Surrey) is taking action to encourage mayoral candidates to be aware of a call to review Light Rail issues if elected to office, and high support for SkyTrain over LRT in online polls.

Letters were sent by campaign manager (and popular Surrey transit issues activist) Daryl Dela Cruz, to candidates who have yet to demonstrate a will to address citizen demands and review LRT issues: Linda Hepner (Surrey First), Doug McCallum (Safe Surrey Coalition), Barinder Rasode (One Surrey), and John Wolanski.

The letters can be viewed on our website at

You must not deny and ignore the calls from future Councillors, Surrey residents, and other important spokespeople to review the city’s position in favour of Light Rail, if you are elected to office.

SkyTrain for Surrey has also previously released three “reality check” statements on faulty viewpoints on Light Rail shared by the mayoral candidates, who have near-unanimously thrown their support for proposed ground-level Light Rail in Surrey:
