What was this engagement about?
Community meetings and pop-up events were held between October 30 and November 7, 2019, where Broadway Subway Project team members were on hand to share information and answer questions about the Project.

How will my contribution make a difference?
Efforts to identify a rapid transit solution for the Broadway Corridor have been underway for decades. As part of the UBC Line Rapid Transit Study (2009-2012), an evaluation of approximately 200 technology and route options was completed, along with extensive stakeholder and public engagement. Input received during the planning stages has been considered in preliminary station designs and the early development of mitigation measures.
The project will consider input received during this engagement, along with technical requirements, to help inform traffic, construction, and communications plans.
