Light Rail supporters: Rapid buses won’t meet demand and will result in Broadway-like overcrowding on King George Blvd.
FACT: A full Bus Rapid Transit system has the capacity to meet future demand
- A full BRT system would offer higher capacity than Broadway B-Line services
- Surrey has time to foresee & prevent Broadway-like overcrowding through effective zoning policies.
- BRT systems can use double-articulated buses, such as the Hess lighTram, to offer an LRT-like high capacity with space for between 250-300 passengers
ABOVE: An example of a double-articulated bus
Myth #6: Only LRT has the capacity to handle future growth
