Click here to read the draft report!

Hey Richmond, Delta and Tsawwassen First Nation!

Thank you to everyone who participated in Phase 2 consultation this spring on the Southwest Area Transport Plan (SWATP). The draft report recommendations for Phase 2 are in and ready for your review! We want to know what you think from now until December 1, 2017 December 10, 2017.

During consultation, which included an online survey and in-person engagement activities, we heard concerns about the proposed changes to routes such as the 602 and 480.

That’s why we made modifications to all of the proposals that had significant-to-moderate concern expressed. In fact, after reading through all of your comments, we even found ways to make some of the proposals which received strong support even better!

Visit translink.ca/swatp to read the Phase 2 draft report and the recommendations. Have a look through and let us know what you think by emailing swatp@translink.ca, leaving feedback by visiting translink.ca/feedback or calling 604.953.3333.

What is the Southwest Area Transport Plan?

The Southwest Area Transport Plan establishes a blueprint for the transit and transportation needs in Richmond, South Delta, the Tsawwassen First Nation and important connections to North Delta.

What’s next?

We’ve been working closely with our partners in Richmond, Delta and the Tsawwassen First Nation and look forward to their endorsement of the SWATP. The final plan will be available in early 2018.

As well, recommendations that include changes to the transit network would likely undergo additional public engagement when they are being considered for implementation.

Our planners chat with residents at Steveston Farmers & Artisans Market during Phase 2 Southwest Area Transport Plan consultation this past spring.

    I don’t like how the 404 was modified back to its original routing, I don’t feel that commuting to school (MacNeill) should take the same amount of walking there from my house (Cambie and 4 Rd) compared to taking the bus, ~30 mins. MacNeill is my catchment school but hard to get there w/o a car. Translink please bring back the proposed north-south from ironwood to Bridgeport stn, it would make going to school a lot easier and faster.
