Learn how City of Surrey is moving forward with a SkyTrain extension along Fraser Highway.

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.

New Round of Public Engagement

Please note that this round of public engagement has been postponed and will take place after the provincial election.

TransLink has started a new round of public engagement on the Surrey Langley SkyTrain project.

Virtual engagement runs between September 18 and October 4, 2020 and includes an online survey, telephone town hall, and webinar.

The online survey seeks feedback, which will help to inform project planning, on:

  • Public art opportunities at the new SkyTrain stations, and
  • Minimizing construction impacts on residents, businesses, and commuters.

Concurrent Works

We’re working with TransLink to integrate the widening of Fraser Highway from 140 St to 148 St with the Surrey Langley SkyTrain project. Simultaneous construction will minimize impacts to residents, business and the environment.

Project Map

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

This will be a 16-kilometre 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,
  • more 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:
