TransLink's Southwest Area Transport Plan - Phase 2
Between May 23 and June 19, TransLink is inviting everyone who lives, works, plays or travels through Richmond, Delta and the Tsawwassen First Nation to get involved in Phase 2 of the Southwest Area Transport Plan and help shape transportation in their community.

Building on the work of Phase 1, which identified opportunities and values of the area, Phase 2 proposes changes to transit service and infrastructure, as well as improvements to regionally-significant cycling corridors.

For Phase 2 engagement, there are multiple opportunities for the public to provide feedback:

  • Residents can provide their feedback online at translink.ca/swatp, where background information on the proposed changes will be posted, as well as a link to an online survey.
  • Paper surveys will also be available for pickup and drop off at several civic facilities during the engagement period.

TransLink will also be engaging the public at the following events:
