West Broadway Business Association calls for light rail


A new group, the West Broadway Business Association, has been formed: The WBBA is a non-profit society representing the local interests of businesses along West Broadway, from Alma to Burrard, and beyond to Cambie.

They’re calling for a surface-level light rail or tram system along Broadway instead of the current plan to build a subway:

“We are very much in favor of improving rapid transit,” said Dobo, owner of Just Imagine on West Broadway.

She said many merchants and residents were unhappy with the impact of the Canada Line and would be horrified at cut-and-cover or tunneling projects occurring in the area.

A vast Lower Mainland light rail network stretching from UBC to Hope, or a 12km subway…

what a hard choice
