Businesses surveyed about 176 Street street car

Will Cloverdale merchants trade some on-street parking for potentially attracting new visitors through heritage transit?

Will businesses in downtown Cloverdale agree to give up some on-street parking in return for a heritage streetcar along 176 Street?

A City of Surrey questionnaire distributed to 176 Street businesses also asks if the “Clover Belle” would have a positive impact and attract new visitors here.

The survey is part of the city’s ongoing feasibility study to consider the installation of a heritage street car line on 176 Street between Highway 10 and 58A Avenue.

Running a dual-track on either side of the street – instead of a single, north-south track along the eastern curb – would result in eight fewer parking spaces between Highway 10 and 58 Avenue.

Potential route and stop locations would be at existing corner bulges on each block.
