Transit

As the population of Abbotsford grows to 200,000 people, the City is working to ensure we meet the needs of a growing city and that we ensure our Transit system is matched to where the growth of the population is expected, and that the routes and frequency match what the residents and businesses need.

Transit has tremendous potential to contribute to more economically vibrant, livable, and sustainable communities. The need to realize this potential in Abbotsford and Mission is increasingly important because of factors such as climate change, population growth, an aging demographic and mobility for individuals who do not have access to a private automobile.


background

Abbotsford’s Official Community Plan (OCP), adopted in June 2016, provides a vision and a framework for how Abbotsford will grow to a population of 200,000. We are now reviewing and updating existing Master Plans and Studies to ensure all of our future operations, development, infrastructure, services, amenities and programs align with the vision set out in our OCP. 

The objective of the Transit Master Plan is to envision the transit network 25 years from now and describe the services, infrastructure, and investments that are required to achieve the vision.  The current Transit Plan was completed in 2013.

TRANSIT MASTERPLAN
TIMELINE
We will soon be in in STAGE 1: BACKGROUND RESEARCH. As information becomes available on public events, open houses,
surveys, presentations and reports, they will be posted below under the corresponding stage.  

STAGE 1 - BACKGROUND RESEARCH

The background research will give us the data needed to move to our next phase where we will explore new options, and priorities for the future of Transit in the City of Abbotsford.

STAGE 2 - EXPLORING OPTIONS

How many routes should we have?  Where should they go?  How frequent should they be?  These are some of the types of questions we will be coming to you with in the fall!

STAGE 3 - DRAFT PLAN

We will compile the research and feedback we receive from stage 2, which will form the base of our Draft Plan. This is your Abbotsford, and it is important that the Transit Master Plan is for the future that you envision!

STAGE 4 - FINAL PLAN

During this stage, we will have compiled all of our collective feedback and priorities and present the final plan to the public and Council.
