Good first step

Be really nice if Translink could help fund and connect to Scott Road station. But once that is done, they may need more than the two heritage cars that still exist. Modern street cars linking Steveston and Chilliwack via Cloverdale would be nice too, but the above is a good first step.

Passenger rail to the valley?

If we could use the railway from Scott Road Station to Chillwack for street cars or a sort of South Fraser Express we’d be set. I forgot what the name of the railroad is, I think it’s called Surrey Rail Link.

But guessing by the amount of traffic on it they could run a few trains westbound and eastbound per day. Or better yet do what Portland did and build new streetcars and rail out to Chillwack.
