Study says subway best option for Broadway-UBC corridor

Translink is out with a new study Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson says supports a subway as the rapid transit option for the UBC-Broadway corridor.

He says the Translink analysis evaluated several options for that route, and found a subway would cut travel time from Commercial to UBC in half, to 19 minutes.

As well, it would attract five times more riders than light rapid transit, and would reduce greenhouse gas emmissions by 40 per-cent more than L-R-T.
