TransLink seeks community input on Northeast area transit plan


TransLink officials are soliciting public comments on existing transit in the Northeast sector of Vancouver, British Columbia, as part of the Northeast Sector Area Transit Plan.

Residents of, or travelers through Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, Port Moody, Belcarra and Anmore are invited to complete an online survey by 4 p.m. June 14, TransLink officials said in a press release.

The area transit plan identifies a long-term vision and near-term priorities for seven areas within metro Vancouver. The plan will take into consideration community input, current and projected land use, and growth and transportation-related data.

"Before we can start envisioning the future of transit in the Northeast sector, we need to first assess what works and what can work better," said Bob Paddon, TransLink's executive vice president of strategic planning and public affairs.

The plan is slated for completion by fall 2014.
