New Westminster – Phase 2 of the Northeast Sector Area Transit Plan starts today with an online interactive survey. Residents who live in or travel through Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, Port Moody, Belcarra and Anmore are invited to provide their input via an online survey at translink.ca/nesatp. Consultation will run until 4:00 p.m. on January 6, 2014.

The results of Phase 1, which examined the issues and opportunities for the Northeast Sector Transit Plann, are at  translink.ca/nesatp. More than 11 000 people provided input during the Phase 1 consultation that ran from May 28 to June 14, 2013.

“With the results of Phase 1, we’re ready to start envisioning the future of transit in the Northeast Sector,” says Bob Paddon, Executive Vice President, Strategic Planning and Public Affairs at TransLink.

The four phases of the Northeast Sector Area Transit Plan aim to identify a long-term vision and near-term priorities for the area’s transit network. The Northeast Sector Area Transit Plan will coordinate transit and municipal land use planning while considering the future growth of the area.

“We’re working with stakeholders, a public advisory committee, municipal partners and the public to build upon the results of Phase 1 and work toward a 30-year vision and short term priorities for the area,” says Paddon.

The online interactive survey takes 10 to 15 minutes to complete. It illustrates different ways the transit network could change. Moveable maps and markers illustrate the results of each choice, relating conceptual scenarios to the specific priorities chosen by residents.

In addition to the online interactive survey, in-person drop-in sessions and facilitated workshops will take place with TransLink staff. Details on dates and locations are available at translink.ca/nesatp. The completed plan is expected to be finished by fall 2014.

Area Transit Plans are undertaken in seven areas within Metro Vancouver. These plans consider community input, current and projected land use and growth, and transportation- related data findings such as automated passenger counts.
