WHITE ROCK – While Surrey has committed to supporting a “yes” vote in the upcoming transit referendum, White Rock council has yet to take an official position.
White Rock Mayor Wayne Baldwin said council has not yet been able to meet about the referendum but noted they were hopeful TransLink would be able to come in soon to discuss it with them.
“Once council has that information we’ll be in a better position to take a position on it.”
Himself a member of the TransLink Mayors’ Council, Baldwin said at first glance White Rock would likely derive some decent benefit if the referendum were to pass, but would like clarification from TransLink directly.
“What we’d get would be a B-Line bus from White Rock into a new light rapid transit station in Surrey, somewhere towards King George and Newton,” he said.
“I believe we would get better handy-dart services and some new buses as well. The indirect benefits are much bigger probably.” email@example.com
