Threatened with service cuts, Surrey residents and members of council have gathered in protest.
Almost 100 people are waving signs in the rain, opposing any transit service cutbacks.
Mayor Dianne Watts has just told the crowd any transit cuts are not acceptable.
She says the city needs more transit, not less.
Watts says Translink has given her a list of routes that could be affected by what it calls "optimization".
She says the biggest roadblock continues to be sustainable funding, an issue Watts has little hope will be solved before May's election.
