TransLink will be holding an open house to learn about the proposed Burnaby Mountain Gondola Transit Project and provide feedback to the planning team.
TransLink is studying the feasibility of a gondola from Production Way – University SkyTrain station to Burnaby Mountain to improve transit reliability and travel times, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The proposed Burnaby Mountain Gondola Transit Project would serve SFU students, faculty and staff, residents and businesses of UniverCity, and visitors.
Two open houses will present the outcomes of the planning study, and solicit community input about the proposed project.
