SkyTrain for Surrey, not LRT!

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

Myth #6: Only LRT has the capacity to handle future growth
