UBC Line Rapid Transit Study
Broadway is an important regional corridor and critical to our economy. It is home to the largest university and hospital in the province and the largest job centre in the province after Downtown.
The corridor is already home to over 85,000 people and 100,000 jobs and is expected to grow significantly over the coming decades. Transit service in the corridor is unable to keep up with the number of people that want to take transit today, let alone handle the future growth. Full buses pass by thousands of people every day, discouraging transit use in the corridor.
The UBC Line Rapid Transit Study will explore different ways to improve transit services in the Broadway Corridor between Commercial Drive and UBC. The study is being co-managed by the province and TransLink with the City of Vancouver involved as one of five partner agencies.
