  26. 29. Draft Background Paper for the Fraser Valley Regional District (FVRD) Transportation Vision <ul><li>Interurban Rail comments: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>“ the dispassionate reality is that ridership levels are, and would, for the next several decades, almost certainly be too low relative to the conceivable cost of any service that would be of utility” </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>“ the currently dispersed settlement and destination patterns of the FVRD residents as well as the retail, educational, medical, recreational and employment locations would preclude a rail system from being a viable choice for most residents” </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>“ Rail systems work in a many to one or many to few type of travel pattern. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>“ The travel patterns, both current and projected for the FVRD are not like this. In addition, as illustrated above, any conceivable volumes are such that demand may easily and more flexibly be met by rubber tired systems” </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>“ the policy for the FVRD is to try to develop more ‘complete’ communities that have a better balance of jobs and workers in each community. To some degree the construction of fast, high capacity systems into the Fraser Valley would work against this”. </li></ul></ul>
  27. 30. Draft Background Paper for the Fraser Valley Regional District (FVRD) Transportation Vision <ul><li>Conclusions: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>“ Transit needs to be improved at the local, regional and inter-regional level by a factor of four or five. Returns on transit expenditures will not yield optimum benefits unless the region’s communities densify considerably and create fully pedestrian and bicycle friendly communities.” </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>“ While there is some appetite for expanded rail into the Fraser Valley, the cold hard reality is that the level of demand can easily be met, probably for many decades with rubber tired solutions. Nonetheless steps should be taken to protect rail rights of way for future generations.” </li></ul></ul>

  31. 34. Next Steps <ul><ul><li>Community Rail passenger service be re-examined following successful implementation of a similar type of community rail service between Scott Road and Cloverdale which is significantly greater than the current proposal of a “Heritage Train” (2010).
