Get involved in Phase 3 of the Northeast Sector Area Transit Plan

Northeast Sector Area Transit Plan

It’s your community, have your say!

 

Attention Buzzer readers…do you recall a few posts ago where we told you about Phase 1 and Phase 2 of the Northeast Sector Area Transit Plan? Well, Phase 3 begins today – June 16!

In Phase 1, you shared your thoughts on the key issues and opportunities for transit in your community. Then in Phase 2, you helped us shape the long-term transit vision in the Northeast Sector. Now we invite you to provide feedback on proposed changes that will help achieve the vision for the transit network in Anmore, Belcarra, Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam and Port Moody.

To get involved, you can complete an online survey or drop by one of six community events to get more information. The survey will be available until July 14, 2014.

Northeast Sector Area Transit Plan Phase 2 interactive survey is now live

It's time to look long-term transit planning in the Northeast Sector!

It’s time to look long-term transit planning in the Northeast Sector!

Attention residents or riders who travel regularly in Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, Port Moody, Anmore or Belcarra. It’s time to help us with long-term planning of the Northeast Sector transit plan.

Be Part of the Plan!

The second phase of the Northeast Sector Area Transit Plan (NESATP) starts today! Building on key issues and opportunities for transit in the area learned during the Phase 1, Phase 2 looks to identify a 30-year transit vision for the sub-region. The end result of this four phased plan will be both a 30-year vision and transit priorities for the next 1-10 years.

Take the interactive online survey

We’re doing things a little differently for phase 2. We have a really exciting online interactive tool that lets you act like a planner of transit for the sub-region. First you pick your priorities from a list of important trade-offs required in transit network design.  Next, a series of maps illustrate conceptual scenarios based on different ways the network could change – and show how those scenarios relate to your chosen priorities. After scenarios you can drill down further to different opportunities for the region — all for you to determine!

The online interactive survey will be open until 4 p.m. on Friday, January 6, 2014. Your input, along with financial and technical information, will help TransLink develop the plan, expected to be completed by fall 2014.

Take part in our workshops and drop-in sessions

There will be three workshops in the Coquitlam Centre area on November 25, 26 and 30. Check the Get Involved page for more details including registering in advance.

Riders can also take part in four drop-in sessions on November 22, 25, 26 and 30. Again, you’ll want to check the Get Involved page for more details including time of day and locations.

More to come

Stay tuned! There will be more opportunities for you to give your input on the future of transit in the Northeast Sector coming up in the next phase.

Well, TransLink needs your help!

We’re looking for people to sit on a new Public Advisory Committee (PAC), to provide community perspective into our newly-launched Northeast Sector Area Transit Plan process.

If you’re interested, there’s more info and an application form over at translink.ca/nesatp. Applications, submitted online or through the mail, are due March 18, 2013.

What’s an area transit plan?

TransLink’s area transit plans identify long-term visions and near-term priorities for an area’s transit network and are undertaken for seven areas within Metro Vancouver.

The plans consider community input, current and projected land use and growth and transportation-related data findings, such as automated passenger counts. The Northeast Sector Area Transit Plan will coordinate transit planning with municipal land use planning while considering the future of the area.

Stakeholders and the public will have a variety of opportunities to provide feedback during the 18-month process, including through public consultation events and online surveys.
