TransLink holds open house in White Rock

Eleven residents attended the open house for TransLink's Phase 1, 10-Year Vision.

White Rock asked, TransLink responded.

TransLink originally planned five open houses across Metro Vancouver its Phase 1, 10-Year Vision, but it offered to host open houses in additional municipalities if requested by the local governments.

“White Rock was one of the three municipalities that requested one of the three additional (open houses),” said TransLink spokesman Chris Bryan, noting Port Moody and New Westminster were the other two.

The White Rock open house was held Tuesday from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the White Rock Community Centre.

A total of 11 people attended the open house in White Rock.

“We put it on our calendar on our website, but we provided the promotional materials to the individual municipalities to promote through their communication channels,” Bryan said.

Mayor Wayne Baldwin has been long critical of the quality of bus service in White Rock, last year calling it “crummy” and later calling on TransLink to “do more” to engage the community concerning proposed changes.

The information provided at the open house was verbatim of what TransLink has on its website, tenyearvision.translink.ca

TransLink will accept public input on its website until the end of the month.
