Our Mission

Our goal is to demonstrate to TransLink, and the federal and provincial governments that there is widespread support for an LRT system and that funding LRT should be their top priority.

Why LRT?

Surrey is the fastest growing city in British Columbia. By 2041, the population is expected to grow to 750,000 people, a 50% increase from the current population of 480,000. It is important that this growth be responsibly managed so that we can develop higher density, livable neighbourhoods. A Light Rail Transit (LRT) system can play an important role in helping shape these neighbourhoods and ensuring that Surrey remains a great place to live and work.
  1. LRT will connect communities south of the Fraser
  2. LRT will create pedestrian-friendly neighbourhoods with new developments and businesses
  3. LRT has easily accessible cars that can carry high volumes of passengers
  4. LRT is a cost effective solution that will link the most communities

Three LRT routes are being proposed by the City of Surrey:

  • City Centre to Guildford, along 104 Avenue, with a connection to Highway 1
  • City Centre to Highway 10 in Newton with the opportunity for future extension to the south
  • City Centre to Langley, passing through Fleetwood and Clayton along the Fraser Highway
