Proposed bus route through Fraser Heights

TO ALL RESIDENTS OF FRASER HEIGHTS

TRANSIT REVIEW

As you are aware, Translink is undertaking a review of the services provided, & new services to be added.

In this review, they are proposing Route 338 be added to Fraser Heights. While any additional transit options are welcome,we believe this is our opportunity to engage Translink in a conversation with our Community to suggest that additional services are needed. We have drawn on the map below 1) suggested rerouting of 337; 2) a suggested routing for 338; & 3) a rerouting of 501 to travel through Fraser Heights.

Please take the opportunity to send your opinions to Translink at the following address:

networkreview@translink.ca

Please cc your Association at: directors@fhca.ca

 

For your information, Route 501 currently travels along 104 Ave eastbound & enters Hwy 1 at the 160 St on ramp. It exits at 176 St, travels along Golden Ears way to the 96 Ave connector. It then travels 96 Ave & into Langley City Centre.

We would propose it travel through Fraser Heights as set out on the map below. It would intersect it’s current route at Barnston Drive & 96 Ave. This would be a tremendous benefit to residents of Fraser Heights travelling East. It would return West on the same Route.

Invitation to Transportation Talks from the City of Surrey

I would like to share with you an opportunity for you and/or your association members to register for this year’s Transportation Talks program.   If you could please distribute this invite to your members, it would be much appreciated,  as we would love to fill this year’s class with engaged Surrey residents who will bring their passion to weekly conversations on how transportation is shaping and impacts our city.  Details are provided below, but please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.

 Registration for Transportation Talks is now OPEN!

Care about transportation in your city? From commuters and cycling enthusiasts to transportation advocates, let’s chat.

Presented in partnership by the SFU City Program and the City of Surrey, Transportation Talks is an annual ‘citizen academy’ program. It tackles hot topic urban issues through a comprehensive introduction to the transportation system in the Lower Mainland, with a particular focus on Surrey.

The 9-week program, starting September 6, will explore how transportation shapes our city. Sessions will take place on Thursdays from 6-9pm, except for the city bus tour, which takes place on a Saturday, as noted on the schedule.

You’ll hear from weekly guest speakers — policy- and decision-makers, planners, and engineers from city and regional governments, academia, private industry and the regional transit agency —  and discuss the influence of community, mobility, accessibility and more have on how transportation is planned.

Visit Transportation Talks to learn more, or register now quoting program #4622856.
