We want your thoughts on rapid transit in the Surrey area!

Tell us what you think about rapid transit in the Surrey area!

This week, we’re launching a public consultation to get your feedback on nine rapid transit alternatives for the Surrey region.

We’ve come to these alternatives after a year of hard work with the Province of B.C. Stakeholders from the Surrey region helped us get to know the key issues, and with their help, we’ve identified these nine preliminary concepts for rapid transit in the Surrey area.

So now it’s your turn to have a look and tell us if we’re on the right track!

How to get involved

Before you dive in, I’d really urge you to watch these two videos first! See the video at the top of this post to learn more about the study, and see the video above to learn more about what we’re looking for in this consultation.

Then go wild and check out our Surrey Be Part of the Plan page [1] to learn more about the alternatives and the Surrey project.

Once you’re armed with all the information, share your thoughts in our questionnaire [2], or at one of our four in-person workshops [3]. Or join us online for a webinar [4]!

Submit your questions for the webinar

The webinar is a new addition to our consultation toolbox this year!

If you can’t make it to one of the in-person sessions, join us online for this live, one-hour session led by Jeff Busby, TransLink’s Manager of Infrastructure Planning.

We’ll be holding the webinar on Tuesday, October 19, 2010 from 7 p.m. – 8 p.m. PST. Jeff will do a presentation about the Surrey Rapid Transit Study, and he’ll leave lots of time for your questions.

Don’t worry if you can’t attend the webinar, either — we’ll be recording it and the video will be available after the event. I will also do follow-up blog posts for discussion based on clips from the webinar.

In the meantime, feel free to visit our webinar page [4] to pre-register for the session.

As well, please do submit advance questions for the webinar through the comments in this post!

You can ask questions during the webinar too, but obviously gathering your questions in advance will help us make sure Jeff is getting to the most popular questions. You can even use the Like function in the comments to vote on questions you’d really like answers on.

And of course, if you prefer e-mail, feel free to send your questions to thebuzzer@translink.ca.
