Transit Friendly Subdivision Guidelines

Developers and regulators need to take into account the increasing use of transit as a means of transportation when designing and approving subdivisions.  Incorporating transit design into new subdivisions should be considered even if there is no transit service in the area at this time.  Expansion of transit service in the future may incorporate developments, which are now not serviced.  Creating a transit friendly subdivision requires greater thought at the planning stage, but creates a more transit efficient and desirable subdivision.    Detailed guidelines are available from BC Transit in the pamphlet Transit Friendly Design Features
