$14 billion transit investment extends SkyTrain to UBC

January 15, 2008

A $14 billion addition to British Columbia's public-transit systems will link the University of British Columbia via SkyTrain, as well as implement new light-rail systems and add new bus lines.  Vancouver already has a 49 kilometre SkyTrain system -- the longest in the world.  Extending the line onto UBC's campus is expected to cost $2.8 billion, and will be complete by 2020.
