The newly released 30 year transit strategy proposed by Metro Vancouver mayors would see a rapid transit line built along the Broadway corridor but it doesn’t go all the way to UBC.
UBC Alma Mater President Tanner Boor says while he is pleased to see a regional transportation strategy, it’s important to continue the conversation about connecting the Millennium Sky train route to the University.
“UBC is the provinces third largest employer. We are a central innovation hub for the province. We contribute a great deal to the provincial economy so we feel that having rapid transit connecting to campus and having UBC be connected to the rest of the region and the rest of the province is an incredibly smart investment short and long term.”
The proposed line would only go as far as Arbutus Street.
