Surrey Truck Parking Task Force
Presenting Options Phase – Engagement begins Sept 28
Open House and Online Survey
The supply of authorized truck parking facilities in the City of Surrey has been a long-standing issue. Surrey’s Truck Parking Task Force is working to develop creative options to increase supply to better meet the needs of truck operators and the community. To generate practical and effective solutions by early 2020, getting the input of a wide range of local truckers and residents throughout the process is key.
Now in Step 4 of a five-step process, staff will present and solicit public input on draft options under consideration for Surrey’s Trucking Parking Strategy. Attend the information meeting to learn more and share your input:
- Saturday, September 28 from 11:00am to 2:00pm at Surrey City Hall, Atrium (13450 104 Street, Surrey).
To learn more about the issues, visit the project page. Can’t make the meeting? Launch of the online survey and materials presented at the open house will be available on the webpage beginning September 30 through to October 21.
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.

All the best,
