Dear Surrey Friends,

We would like to invite to invite you to attend a special transportation event, please feel free to circulate to your networks:

Are you frustrated with the politics around our region’s transportation network? Are the mixed messages on transit and upcoming referendum <>  leading you astray? Transportation is important, it has an oversized impact on the region’s economy, energy use, emissions, and livability. While our region is widely known as being one of the best places in the world to live and has a leading public transit system, Metro Vancouver is projected to have a million new people, 600,000 more jobs, and 700,000 more vehicles on the road by 2041. Moreover, the costs of congestion in our region have been pegged as high as $1.5 billion per year.

The decisions that govern, plan, and pay for our transit, roads, cycling, and walking networks are incredibly complex and require good public engagement. However, citizens and stakeholders are being inundated with contradictory information around the current state and future direction of our transportation system.

Join us at two public dialogues that will launch Moving in a Livable Region <> , a new initiative of the SFU Centre for Dialogue <>  that seeks to engage and educate Metro Vancouver citizens and stakeholders on transportation issues. Our panelists will discuss transportation, the economy, and what is needed to ensure high livability in the region.

Beyond the Politics: The Benefits of Moving in a Livable Region – Surrey

When: Tuesday, April 8, 1:00 – 2:15 PM
Where: SFU Surrey Campus <> , 250-13450 102 Avenue, Surrey, Room 3310, The Now Newspaper Theatre
Registration: Please reserve your free seat here <>

Panelists include:
- Anita Huberman, CEO of the Surrey Board of Trade
- Shauna Sylvester, Fellow at the Simon Fraser University Centre for Dialogue, Executive Director of Carbon Talks and SFU Public Square
- Special Guest Moderator: Stephen Dooley, Executive Director of the SFU Surrey campus
- Representatives from the City of Surrey have been invited

Community Events / Pattullo Bridge Review Consultations February 24 - March 14, 2014
« Last post by Mark on February 14, 2014, 03:38:03 PM »
POSTPONED: Pattullo Bridge Review Consultation
TransLink is deferring announced public consultation regarding the Pattullo Bridge, which was to begin next week. This deferral will allow TransLink time to work with the Mayors’ Council on Regional Transportation to respond to last week’s request from the Province that the Council work with TransLink to develop a plan for transportation in the region. As the Pattullo Bridge is one of the key priorities for the region, TransLink needs time to confirm with the Mayors’ Council how options for this project will fit into the regional plan, which the Mayors have been asked to deliver by June 30, 2014.
TransLink anticipates completing this work as quickly as possible and commencing Phase 2 public consultation of the Pattullo Bridge Review later this spring. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Please watch for notification of upcoming consultation opportunities in your email and at
