  • The Interurban settled the South Fraser Valley. The line touches a variety of strategic destinations
  • The Interurban settled the South Fraser Valley. The line touches a variety of strategic destinations
  • The Interurban settled the South Fraser Valley. The line touches a variety of strategic destinations
  • The Interurban settled the South Fraser Valley. The line touches a variety of strategic destinations
  • On opening in 1910, the Interurban served a population of 18,000. When rubber replaced rail in 1950, the population of the valley was 77,000. Today, we are over ten times that number at 850,000 and headed for a million souls in 2012.. And NO passenger rail options.
  • Recent TransLink trip diaries show that only 20% of traffic in the south Farser Valley crosses the river. 80% has origin and destination south of the Fraser River. Approximately 30% of the “moving” population does not have access to private motor vehicles. A Community Rail system supplies the largest demand most effectively.

  • 1. A case for new transit options in the south Fraser region Presented To: New Westminster Environmental Partners (NWEP) AGM The Evolution of Transportation South Fraser OnTrax November 9, 2010
  • 2. WHO IS SOUTH FRASER ONTRAX ?
    • Not For Profit / Non-Partisan BC Society Founded in April 2008
    • Advocate for smart growth development and transit options
    • Sponsor several free public education workshops each year
    • We advocate by engaging public officials in open discussions
    • We listen to reason – We encourage SOLUTIONS
    “ We engage – We DON’T Protest” A Holistic Approach to Transit
  • 3. THE ISSUES WE SEE AND HEAR
    • “ Transit Deficit” in south Fraser (SF) region
    • Current focus = get people to Vancouver ??
    • TransLink numbers show need for SF community connections
    • SF = roads and buses only - no LRT or Streetcars
    • Aging population - transit for seniors and handicapped needed
    • Disconnect between development (TOD) & transit due to focus
  • 4. THE ISSUES WE SEE AND HEAR
    • We are built around roads (mobility) vs. people & walkability
    • We have set ourselves up for what we have today
    • Local work options growing – much more needed
    • Long-term sustainable living/working/transport solutions
    • No progressive alternatives to goods movement implemented
    • Lack “complete roads” LRT – walkers – cyclers – automobiles
  • 5. THE SOLUTIONS WE SEE AS PRACTICAL
    • Land Use Planning + Transportation Planning (in tandem)
    • Light Rail Transit servicing Abbotsford – Langley - Surrey
    • Open to alignment – Safety & Serves the Greatest Concern
    • Frequent LRT service with connection to region (MAX Line)
    • Community Shuttle Service is exceptional – connect to LRT
    • Local bus or Community Shuttle 15/15/7 – integrated LRT
    • Build Complete Communities (Metro Van Livable Region)
    • Complete Roads and Rail as Development Tool
