South Fraser OnTrax
A case for new transit options in the south Fraser region
                 February 27, 2009
WHO IS SOUTH FRASER ONTRAX ?

            “We engage – We DON’T Protest”
             A Holistic Approach to Transit

 Not For Profit / Non-Partisan BC Society Founded in April 2008
 Need for advocates that don’t head-butt MoT & TransLink
 Advocate for smart growth development and transit options
 Sponsor several free public education workshops each year
 Meet 2nd Thursday of each month in the Township of Langley
 We advocate by engaging public officials in open discussions
 We do not engage in political name-calling
 We listen to reason – We encourage middle ground
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
 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
THE SOLUTIONS WE SEE AS PRACTICAL
  Re-activate Light Rail Transit from Abbotsford to Surrey
  Open to alignment – Safety & Serves the Greatest Good
  Can eventually connect to Chilliwack when there is a biz case
  Local streetcar systems = Abbotsford, the Langleys & Surrey
  Frequent LRT service with connection to YXX
  Community Shuttle Service is exceptional – connect to LRT
  Local bus or Community Shuttle 15/15/7 – integrated LRT
  Land use & transportation planning fit together (TOD)
  Build Complete Communities (Metro Van Livable Region)
  Build Complete Roads – mandate as a condition of funding
  Install rail lines with all complete roads
  Coordinate all new underground utilities to facilitate LRT

System Cost – UBC Study




$2.8B = 12 km. UBC SkyTrain

        $2.8B = 175 km Streetcars/LRT
Rapid Bus vs. LRT




Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) / Rapid Bus   LRT / Streetcar
Rapid Bus vs. LRT
       Compared with Bus Only cities - Large Rail cities have:


• 400% higher per capita transit ridership (589 vs. 118 annual passenger-miles)
• 887% higher the transit commute mode split (13.4% vs. 2.7%)
• 36% lower per capita traffic fatalities (7.5 vs.11.7 annual deaths per 100,000 residents)
• 14% lower per capita consumer transportation expenditures ($448 average annual savings),
       despite residents’ higher income.
• 19% smaller portion of household budgets devoted to transportation (12.0% vs. 14.0%)
• 21% lower per capita motor vehicle mileage (1,958 fewer annual miles)
• 33% lower transit operating costs per passenger-mile (42 cents vs. 63 cents)
• 58% higher transit service cost recovery (38% vs. 24%)


FROM: “Rail Transit in America”, Todd Litman - Oct. 2008 Victoria Transport Policy Institute Report
COST TO BUILD LRT vs. SKYTRAIN
Light Rail Transit (LRT)
Fraser Valley Heritage RR (2010 Tourist) = $325,000/per km
Typical North American LRT = $35M/per km
Typical Light Rail Station = $ 5K - $ 10K


SkyTrain
Canada Line = $105M/per km
Evergreen Line $127M/per km
UBC Line = $233M/per km
Typical SkyTrain Station = $30M - 40M

A Case for New Transit Options in the South Fraser Region

  • 1. South Fraser OnTrax A case for new transit options in the south Fraser region February 27, 2009
  • 2. WHO IS SOUTH FRASER ONTRAX ? “We engage – We DON’T Protest” A Holistic Approach to Transit  Not For Profit / Non-Partisan BC Society Founded in April 2008  Need for advocates that don’t head-butt MoT & TransLink  Advocate for smart growth development and transit options  Sponsor several free public education workshops each year  Meet 2nd Thursday of each month in the Township of Langley  We advocate by engaging public officials in open discussions  We do not engage in political name-calling  We listen to reason – We encourage middle ground
  • 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  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
  • 4. THE SOLUTIONS WE SEE AS PRACTICAL  Re-activate Light Rail Transit from Abbotsford to Surrey  Open to alignment – Safety & Serves the Greatest Good  Can eventually connect to Chilliwack when there is a biz case  Local streetcar systems = Abbotsford, the Langleys & Surrey  Frequent LRT service with connection to YXX  Community Shuttle Service is exceptional – connect to LRT  Local bus or Community Shuttle 15/15/7 – integrated LRT  Land use & transportation planning fit together (TOD)  Build Complete Communities (Metro Van Livable Region)  Build Complete Roads – mandate as a condition of funding  Install rail lines with all complete roads  Coordinate all new underground utilities to facilitate LRT
  • 5. POPULATION From Stats Canada 2006: 2012: 1,000,000 846,166 2031: 3,000,000 1910: 18,000 1951: 77,583
  • 6. TRANSPORTATION DEMAND 20% 80% 30% - No Car
  • 7. ROAD NETWORK DEMAND Assuming a 50% goods movement by rail BC Port Traffic x3 by 2020 Increasing truck demand on our road network -- MoT Gateway Program Discussion
  • 8. ROAD NETWORK DEMAND Change in nature of our trips A = Traditional downtown pattern B = Increased population & location of job creation = Complex Travel Patterns
  • 11. ABBOTSFORD PATTERNS Destinations
  • 12. ABBOTSFORD PATTERNS “Horseshoe” Concept Transit & Other Corridors
  • 13. ABBOTSFORD COMMUTER PATTERNS 31% From Langley & Surrey + 18% From Further West (49%)
  • 14. SURREY PATTERNS Surrey = 2,428 vs. Burnaby 2,387 people per sq km
  • 15. SURREY PATTERNS Blue = Private Auto Use / Red = Public Transit Use
