Surrey Langley Line

The area south of the Fraser is one of the fastest growing areas in the region. The population of Surrey, Langley City and Langley Township is projected to increase by 280,000 people by the year 2035, and another 200,000 people by 2050. As the population in communities south of the Fraser continues to grow, so does the demand for transit. That’s why improving rapid transit in the South of Fraser area is a regional priority.

In December 2018, the regional Mayors' Council on Transportation directed TransLink to proceed immediately with planning and project development for a Surrey Langley SkyTrain project. In July 2019, the mayors directed TransLink to proceed with developing a full business case to submit to TransLink's Board of Directors, Mayors' Council and senior levels of government for approval.

The proposed project would extend the Expo Line 16.5 kilometres on an elevated guideway from King George SkyTrain Station to Langley City Centre along Fraser Highway. It includes eight stations, three bus exchanges, park-and-ride spaces, 55 SkyTrain vehicles, and an Operations and Maintenance Centre.

Updated estimates put the capital cost of the proposed Surrey Langley SkyTrain – from King George SkyTrain Station to Langley City Centre – at $3.12 billion. Currently, there is approximately $1.6 billion available in funding, which is enough to see the project reach Fleetwood, subject to business case approval by funding partners. As such, the project may be constructed and delivered in phases.

To help keep you informed about rapid transit planning south of the Fraser, including opportunities to get involved, we have launched a new Surrey Langley SkyTrain site.
