SkyTrain for Surrey, not LRT!

Light Rail supporters: Investing in LRT rather than SkyTrain makes both economic and land use sense

FACT: LRT doesn’t make more sense from any perspective.

  • BRT on the same corridor can create the same travel time benefits and provide high capacity for future growth.
  • SkyTrain on the same corridor can create significantly more travel time and economic benefits.
  • Both options can generate significant land-use change as long as local government is actively supporting it.
Myth #4: LRT makes more sense from a land-use planning perspective
