The public is invited to have their say on the first rapid transit project south of the Fraser River in 30 years.

The Surrey Langley SkyTrain Project will provide high-quality, low-cost transportation for tens of thousands of people throughout Metro Vancouver.

The new Surrey Langley Skytrain public engagement begins Monday, May 9, 2022, and runs until June 9. Open houses for members of the public are scheduled for May 25 in Surrey and for May 31 in Langley.

The Surrey Langley SkyTrain will transform the transit experience for people in Metro Vancouver, especially those in the rapidly growing communities throughout the Fraser Valley. The project will help provide sustainable and low-cost transportation choices for the Lower Mainland, while providing opportunities for transit-oriented development, new housing and economic development for people in Surrey and the Fraser Valley.

The project will extend the current Expo Line by 16 kilometres, from King George SkyTrain to 203 Street in the City of Langley. The extension will run on an elevated guideway primarily along the Fraser Highway, adding eight new stations and three new bus exchanges along the route. Once completed, the travel time from Langley City Centre to King George Station will be about 22 minutes, and just over an hour from Langley City Centre to Waterfront Station.

Surrey Langley SkyTrain is currently scheduled for completion in late 2028, two years earlier than first estimated.
