Surrey is expected to nearly double its population and number of jobs between 2006 and 2041. However, as a city on the rise, it’s already beginning to feel the growing pains of congestion and a strained transit network. The proposed transportation improvements for Surrey include a new light rail transit system through to the Langleys as well as improved bus service. The purpose of this dialogue is to explore the transit referendum through the lens of Surrey’s business and student community.
