A Cost-Effective Transportation Solution
A Passenger Rail Line using the existing Inter-urban Corridor represents less than 10% of the cost per Km of the Surrey to Langley SkyTrain proposal, while serving 10 times the population.
All municipalities retain the right-of-way for passenger use on this corridor, representing a unique no-cost-for-use opportunity for the communities south of the Fraser.
