The area south of the Fraser River is one of the fastest growing in the region and it is expected by 2050, the City of Surrey, City of Langley, and Township of Langley will welcome 420,000 new residents and 147,000 new jobs. 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 area is a regional priority and forms part of the 2014 Mayors’ 10-Year Vision.
The Province of BC is delivering the Surrey Langley SkyTrain Project — a 16 kilometre extension of the Expo Line on an elevated guideway along Fraser Highway from King George SkyTrain Station to 203 St in Langley City Centre. The Project will:
Provide sustainable, multi-modal transportation choices to better connect the region;
Support integrated development that includes safe and accessible active transportation to affordable housing, services, employment, and other destinations;
Foster healthy communities and the environment; and
Create economic development and job growth.
Once complete (anticipated in-service date of 2028), the Surrey Langley SkyTrain will connect with three different SkyTrain lines – Millennium, Expo, and Canada, resulting in over 100 kilometres of track.
