Millennium Line UBC Extension

We want to hear from you!

From April 19 to May 14, 2021, we are sharing information about a potential Millennium Line UBC Extension and seeking feedback about two key topics:

  • Project values to better understand priorities, opportunities, and considerations regarding a potential SkyTrain extension to UBC
  • Criteria to help assess potential route and station location options

We invite you to have your say by reviewing our discussion guide, and completing the survey.


How will input be used

Your feedback will help us confirm the objectives of a potential SkyTrain extension, and evaluate possible route options and station locations.

Further engagement opportunities will be provided if decision-makers direct us to proceed to create a business case for a preferred alternative.

    • Improve reliability and travel time
    • Provide a safe and secure service
    • Meet future ridership demand
    • Attract new riders
    • Better connect people to jobs, housing, recreation, and education
    • Support and integrate with existing and future land use and development
    • Expand local and regional economic opportunity
    • Minimize impacts to neighbourhoods
    • Minimize impacts to the natural environment
    • Reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs)
    • Improve access to transit for low-income households
