Transit Future in Agassiz-Harrison

In 2012, the Chilliwack Area Transit Future Plan was completed. Since then, many of the transit service and infrastructure priorities identified in the plan have been completed. This has included projects such as:
  • Holiday service introduced (all routes)
  • Express service established between Chilliwack and Metro Vancouver (Route 66 FVX)
  • Agassiz to Hope service (Route 22)
  • Evans Line extended (Route 2, 8)
  • Enhanced service to Yarrow & Greendale (Route 5)
Now it is important that the region’s transit priorities be updated to continue to guide decision-making over the next 25 years.
 
In order to update these priorities, BC Transit, the City of Chilliwack and the Fraser Valley Regional District have started refreshing the 2012 Plan, with an updated Transit Future Action anticipated in 2020.

BC Transit, the City of Chilliwack and the Fraser Valley Regional District conducted open houses and an online survey in Spring 2019 to gather feedback on transit service and infrastructure priorities in the region. Almost 1,000 people participated in the public engagement process, with results from the public consultation summarized below and detailed in the  Engagement Report
