Transit Future in Hope

Transit Future envisions what a community’s transit network should look in the future, as projected and described by residents, transit users and the strategic community plans of the City of Chilliwack and Fraser Valley Regional District.

Transit Future identifies and prioritizes the transit service and infrastructure investments needed to reach ridership goals, and achieve the associated carbon reduction, social, congestion and economic benefits of transit.

Transit Future Action Plan (2021)

This Transit Future Action Plan is now complete! BC Transit, working with City of Chilliwack and Fraser Valley Regional District staff, has completed and received endorsement for an update to Transit Future Plan, entitled the Transit Future Action Plan. This update guides “everything transit” over the short and medium-term.

As of May 2024, all sections of the Transit Future Action Plan have been endorsed by local government partners. It is anticipated that this plan will undergo its next update in 5 to 6 years.

Transit Future Plan (2012)

In 2012, the Chilliwack Area Transit Future Plan was completed. From 2012 to 2019, many of the transit service priorities identified in the plan were completed. This includes projects such as:

  • Development of the Route 1 Veddar into a higher frequency service
  • Holiday service introduced (all routes)
  • Creation of the 66 Fraser Valley Express, connecting Chilliwack and Abbostford to Metro Vancouver
  • A connection between Hope and Aggasiz, serving communities along Highway 7
