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.
Have questions? Reach out to the City of Surrey’s Transportation Division at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All the best,
