The city of Surrey needs LRT. However, the routes need to be reconsidered to accommodate more of its potential users.
The intersection of 64 Avenue and King George Boulevard is an ideal hub for LRT, using the old Surrey market that sits vacant and is an eyesore. It has parking, and logistics that include more access to residents of South Surrey and White Rock.
How many times do the planners want us to transfer to get downtown? The road surface is level up to that point and would be a better transfer point than the 72 Avenue exchange. Further, a B-line bus down Highway 10 would further benefit its users from Scott Road to the Langley Bypass.
If you want us to use the bus system, make it easy to use and accessible to all its users. Having to call ahead for disabled users on SkyTrain is discriminate in nature and takes us a step backwards.
