LANGLEY, B.C. — B.C. officials are asking the public for their thoughts on plans to build out Metro Vancouver region’s SkyTrain system to Langley.
The project would be the first rapid transit project south of the Fraser River in 30 years.
The new Surrey Langley Skytrain public engagement runs until June 9. Open houses for members of the public are scheduled for May 25 in Surrey and for May 31 in Langley.

The project would extend the current Expo Line by 16 kilometres, from the King George SkyTrain to 203 Street in the city of Langley. The extension will run on an elevated guideway primarily along the Fraser Highway, adding eight new stations and three new bus exchanges along the route. Once completed, the travel time from Langley City Centre to King George Station will be about 22 minutes, and just over an hour from Langley City Centre to Waterfront Station.
The Surrey Langley SkyTrain is currently scheduled for completion in late 2028, two years earlier than first estimated.
