Transit in Surrey

Image of street with bus and skytrain on tracks above.

Transit is a great, environmentally friendly and economical way to get around Surrey with services planned and funded by TransLink, our regional transportation authority.

We love public transit for its ability to build liveable, economically vibrant communities. That's why we're advocating for the next step, Light Rail Transit.

Jump on the SkyTrain from 1 of Surrey's 4 stations on the Expo Line, take a bus from 1 of 6 bus loops and along 33 conventional routes, or hop on a community shuttle along 1 of 10 routes in your area. If it's your first time, get TravelSmart's tips and resources for taking transitto have an easy commute.

The City of Surrey wants to hear from you: We are conducting an online survey to find out where residents would like to see new transit shelters installed in 2014.
