Vancouver: Burnaby Mountain Gondola project
TransLink is advancing the planning and project development of a Burnaby Mountain Gondola. A 3S gondola would provide a fast, frequent, and reliable service between the SkyTrain and Burnaby Mountain for the 25,000 daily trips made by SFU students, staff, faculty, and residents of UniverCity. Gondolas are safe, smart and cost-effective and they provide commuters with an environmentally friendly mode of transit that runs on electricity helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Following public engagement in fall 2020, the goal is to present a single route and design to the Mayors’ Council so they can provide us with direction on next steps. (The Burnaby Mountain Gondola project is not yet approved or funded).
