Burnaby Mountain Gondola – Phase Two

Whistler's Peak 2 Peak Gondola

Imagine you’re suspended over Whistler mountain, the hills of Medellín, Colombia, or maybe Interstate 5 in Portland. Now imagine you’re actually above Burnaby Mountain in a gondola!

It could be real: TransLink is currently exploring the viability of a high-capacity gondola linking Burnaby Mountain, including the Simon Fraser University campus, to SkyTrain. Phase One was a pre-consultation phase that involved six small group meetings of stakeholders including students, recreational users, environmental advocates and residents.

Phase Two

We’re hosting public consultations on the business case for the project in May, and we’d love your input! Here’s what’s going on:

May 25, 2011
5 p.m. – 8 p.m. – Cameron Elementary School
9540 Erickson Drive, Burnaby
*Project Presentations: 5:30 p.m. and 7 p.m.

May 26, 2011
