With the release of the Provincial Transit Plan, the Province has promised $1.1 billion dollars towards a six-kilometreexpansion of the Expo Line SkyTrain in Surrey - date of completion: 2020.
$1.1 Billion. For 6 km. By 2020.
 Absolutely unacceptable.
South Fraser residents deserve better. We can get a ton of transit for $1.1 billion.We just have to look beyond SkyTrain to light rail.

: The network with the Provincial Transit Plan.
Right
: The proposed light rail network with the King GeorgeLine (light blue), the 200th Line (orange), and the Interurban Line (pink).I propose a network of 43.4 kilometres of light rail. All for the same cost!
43.4 km.Electric Light Rail.Same price tag.
Light rail is run at-grade, which reduces the cost and helpsbuild a bustling streetscape. Light rail systems exist acrossEurope and Asia, and more locally in Calgary, Edmonton,Portland, Seattle, and Sacramento.

Light rail is a proven technology 
Light rail has been implemented, in various forms, in over 566transport networks across the world. Light rail, unlike Bombardier’sSkyTrain, is non-proprietary, leading to well tested and cheapertechnology.Furthermore, with municipalities feeling the fiscal imbalance squeeze,coupled with a need for vast transit expansion, cities around theglobe are adopting the model of building multiple light rail lines versusone expensive subway or metro line. Such is the case today in Los Angeles, Seattle, and Toronto.

Why light rail?
 
1.It attracts choice riders.2.It’s fully accessible.3.It’s environmentally sound.4.It’s cheaper to operatethan a bus.5.It encourages smartgrowth.
