Broadway Corridor Report Ready

May 9, 2013

HUB's Vancouver/UBC Committee has completed their Broadway Corridor Recommendations Report.

The Broadway Corridor transportation project offers the opportunity to employ the highest standards in bicycle infrastructure, while at the same time supporting both Vancouver’s Greenest City and TransLink’s cycling goals. The transit mode best suited to supporting cycling is a subway from VCC-Clark to UBC, as it will result in the greatest amount of street space for bike lanes. Cyclist safety would also be maximized, particularly with separated bike lanes and by eliminating the danger of cyclist crashes that surface rail tracks would cause. In addition, the HUB report on the corridor links to City of Vancouver and TransLink studies that show that the best long term solution to reach corridor transportation goals is rail-based rapid transit.
