LRT to Surrey will decrease commute times, help keep the region connected, and revitalize urban neighbourhoods.
More people using public transit means fewer vehicles on the road.
Increase Transit Network Capacity
LRT has the flexibility to meet long-term ridership demand to 2045 and beyond.
LRT will create integrated, pedestrian-friendly communities along two of Surrey’s busiest corridors. LRT revitalizes urban neighbourhoods, attracting developers who want to build near public transit, and people who want to live near transit.
Protect the Environment
LRT runs on electricity, with no operating emissions, reducing greenhouse gases and the region’s dependency on fossil fuels.
Create Jobs & Attract Employment
LRT will diversify Surrey’s economy by attracting highly-skilled jobs in education, technology and health services. More than 3,500 direct jobs and 2,000 indirect jobs are forecast to be created.
Meet the City & Regional Vision
The project is part of the Mayors’ Council Vision and Surrey’s Official Community Plan.
