Phase 1 Stakeholder Consultation: Summer 2009 - April 2010
Through 17 meetings between June 2009 and April 2010, stakeholders, including representative from residents, communities, business, faculty and staff, students and other groups, provided input on the evaluation criteria and helped to define the need for rapid transit. They also learned more about the rapid transit technologies and provided feedback on the recommended rapid transit alternatives.
Phase 1 Public Consultation: April - May 2010
In April and May 2010, the study team presented the recommended alternatives for the UBC Line to stakeholders and the public, and asked them to confirm if these were the right starting point for more work and identify other potential alternatives.
Through 2,300 online questionnaires, 240 comments submitted online and five community workshops with 400 attendees, six alternatives were confirmed and one additional alternative was identified.
Stakeholder and public feedback was considered in designing and evaluating the alternatives presented in Phase 2 consultation.
Phase 2 Public Consultation: March - April 2011
In March and April 2011, the study team presented preliminary design assumptions and evaluation of the seven alternatives to the public for their input. Based on the 1,500 feedback questionnaires received and the discussions at four community workshops, key design assumptions were confirmed and refined. The detailed evaluation of the seven alternatives was updated to reflect those changes.
