Project Details

The Surrey–Newton–Guildford Light Rail Transit (LRT) is the first of two phases in the South of Fraser Rapid Transit Network. It will be an integral new connection to the regional transportation system and will support the current and future transportation needs for Surrey’s growing population.

The project will introduce modern, street-level light rail transit along King George Boulevard and 104 Avenue corridors, connecting Surrey City Centre, Newton and Guildford with 10.5 km of rapid transit. The project introduces the first light rail transit system in British Columbia.

The Surrey-Newton-Guildford LRT Project will feature:

  • 5 km of street-level light rail service along King George Blvd. and 104 Ave.
  • 11 new stops, including two new exchanges
  • 27-minute travel time connecting Surrey City Centre, Guildford and Newton
  • Five-minute frequency in peak hours
  • 1-seat ride between Guildford and Newton centres

TransLink, the Government of Canada and the Province of B.C. are contributing more than $9 billion in transit and transportation investments across Metro Vancouver to achieve the Mayors’ 10-year Vision. The Province committed to funding 40% of Phase Two which includes this project, the Broadway Subway and several others. Both TransLink and the Province are the major funders for the assets they will own. TransLink is directing most of its funding towards the Surrey LRT, and B.C. is directing most of its share of funding to the Broadway Subway project.
