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.
