Let's get the Skytrain to UBC built now!
A Skytrain line to UBC brings Vancouver and our region many benefits.
Improves reliability and travel time: Address issues on the region’s busiest and most consistently overcrowded bus route. A SkyTrain extension would reduce the travel time between Commercial—Broadway and UBC by half (compared to bus), saving transit customers up to 20 minutes per trip.*
Meets future demand: Demand will continue to grow along the Broadway Corridor to UBC. By 2050, Translink expects a Skytrain Line to UBC could carry 130,000 people per day.
Creates a sustainable transportation choice: Reduce vehicle use by 3,000 car trips during peak times and support sustainable transportation options for existing and new homes.
Expands economic opportunity and access to jobs: Connect over 1 million people within a 60-minute trip to UBC and spur economic activity around all stations.
Supports opportunities for Indigenous peoples: Provide improved access for Indigenous-owned developments and communities, including at the Jericho Lands and areas within the University Endowment Lands.
Tell the Mayor to get Skytrain to stop stalling ad get UBC funded and built! It will help make the whole region more affordable help Metro Vancouver do better job meeting Metro Vancouver's climate action commitments.
