The number of cars in the Lower Mainland continues to grow. Worrisome (but totally understandable if you saw the transit service here) for me as a Langley councillor is this stat:
The numbers also suggest Langley will have more vehicles than people within five years, based on current growth rates. The city and township added 23% more vehicles over the past five years, for a total of 104,467.
When you don't give people any options for intracommunity transit (let alone from one municipality to another), they have to have cars to work, take their kids to school, shop, etc. This is just another reason to twin the Port Mann, so we can get transit across that bridge for the first time in twenty years. The Lower Mainland needs more transit options and routes!
