Get it done: Why Ottawa, B.C. and Vancouver should come together to build SkyTrain to UBC

Vancouver, UBC, First Nations partner in push for SkyTrain extension

Letter: A subway to UBC will transform student life for the better


(Now graduated). When I was attending UBC between 2013 and 2015 I never thought we’d be so close to having a one-seat ride from Coquitlam to campus. I lived in Maple Ridge at the time and commuted by bike and public transit 2.5hrs per direction every day. If Skytrain had been available between Coquitlam and campus, I estimate I would have saved 30 minutes per direction. 1 hr per day, 5 hrs per week, 20 hrs per month. That means a lot to me.
