Bus lanes good for economy

Re: Bus lane set for Highway 99, Jan 14.

The Surrey Board of Trade, a member-based business organization focusing on government advocacy, economic development and connecting businesses locally and internationally, commends the provincial government for investing $110 million for transit and road improvements on Highway 99 between King George Boulevard and Highway 91, including 17 kilometres of separate shoulder bus lanes.

We feel that this – and we hope more will be done for the rest of Surrey as it pertains to transit improvements – will help to alleviate traffic congestion and move people to their destination faster – all good for the economy!
