Surrey Langley SkyTrain

Major Step Forward for Surrey Langley SkyTrain

Pending final senior government approvals, construction of Surrey Langley Skytrain is set to begin in early 2022.

Read the latest news

We’re moving forward with a SkyTrain extension along Fraser Highway. It will connect Surrey and Langley, and the rest of the region.

As the backbone of our rapid transit network, SkyTrain will offer riders fast, frequent, high-capacity service. Our focus is to get Surrey residents where they need to go quickly, safely, and affordably.

Project Map

The plan will be built on commitments of the TransLink’s 10-Year Investment Plan.

This will be a 16-km-long Surrey Langley rail rapid transit project. The SkyTrain will travel on an elevated guideway along Fraser Highway. It will provide a seamless, eastward extension of the existing Expo Line. King George Station will connect to Langley Centre through Fleetwood and Cloverdale/Clayton.

The proposed project includes 8 stations, 3 bus exchanges, park and ride spaces, 55 SkyTrain vehicles, and an operations and maintenance centre.

Growing Cities

Surrey and Langley are among the fastest-growing cities in the Lower Mainland.

Over the next 30 years, the City of Surrey, City of Langley, and Township of Langley are expected to

  • welcome more than 400,000 new residents and
  • create 185,000 additional jobs.

This growth will place pressure on our transportation system, economy and environment. More than 79,800 people will be within reach of using the Fraser Highway line by 2030. By 2035, the daily ridership is forecasted to be 62,000 resulting from the increased land use development along the corridor. This will help reduce growth of automobile use in South of Fraser and encourage first and last mile trips by active transportation.

Planning for Growth

To support SkyTrain we will be creating new land use plans along the corridor. We will also be reviewing and updating existing land use plans. Through these we will be supporting the development of walkable and vibrant Transit Oriented Communities.

As a first step, we've completed a series of background studies. These provide context and analysis for the land use plans along the corridor. The following land use plans will be initiated or updated to support the SkyTrain extension:

Benefits for Riders

Safety & Reliability

SkyTrain gets high marks on safety because we do not have the potential of conflicts with other vehicles or pedestrians. SkyTrain's on-time performance rate of 95% or better (Source: TransLink) remains constant over time as the rest of the transportation network gets more congested.

Quality Service & Time Saving

SkyTrain riders will experience quality service levels with convenient, high operating frequencies. This driverless and automated technology is flexible. It can accommodate high capacity, demand surges and respond to growth.

Riders will experience seamless connections and ‘one-seat rides’ to key destinations. With unmatched travel speeds and no transfer penalties, riders will experience faster commutes.

Trains would operate every 6 to 8 minutes during peak periods and approximately every 10 minutes off-peak with 1 of 3 Expo Line trains serving the extension to Langley. Travel time by SkyTrain from Langley Centre to King George is projected to be approximately 22 minutes. This is more than 25 minutes faster than current local bus service, and more than 10 minutes faster than express bus service in the corridor.

Benefits for our City

Economic Catalyst

SkyTrain has a proven track-record of generating billions of dollars in development and spurring land use change. It changes the way people can connect to education, entertainment and employment centres.

Greenhouse Gas Reductions

Over the long-term, SkyTrain provides the capacity to meet long range Green House Gas reduction targets.

South of Fraser Rapid Transit Strategy

We’re also initiating a planning process to refresh the Surrey-Newton-Guildford rapid transit strategy, consistent with the 10-Year Vision of building 27 kms of rapid transit along both corridors. It’s the next step to enhance Surrey’s livability with a sustainable transportation system network throughout our communities.

It's a priority to build a high-quality, connected rapid transit solution.
