When it comes to transportation, Surrey can truly be called well-connected, boasting ample distribution channels via rail, highway, border crossings and the second- largest shipping port in North America; plus, it’s a quick drive from the Vancouver International Airport and Abbotsford International Airport.
Fraser Surrey Docks, a multi-purpose marine terminal, is the largest facility of its kind on the West Coast of North America. It maintains a large fleet of modern mobile cargo-handling equipment, with an on-site garage and maintenance facility as well as direct rail connections to the terminal by the Canadian National Railway, Canadian Pacific Railway, Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway (BNSF) and Southern Rail of British Columbia.
Surrey is close in proximity to international customers, being conveniently situated just 30 minutes from the Vancouver International Airport, 20 minutes from the Abbotsford International Airport and 15 minutes from Boundary Bay Airport.
As for border crossings, Surrey is home to two of the biggest in the province: Peace Arch Crossing (small vehicles only) and the adjacent Pacific Highway Crossing (commercial vehicles and small vehicles), both of which provide direct access to major highway transportation routes to and from the U.S.
Getting around Surrey itself without any hassle is vital, considering the huge volume of business transactions that occur within city limits. And on that score, infrastructure and service has evolved so that virtually every destination is easily accessible. The network of bus routes provided by Coast Mountain Bus Company (whose fleet is augmented by community shuttle routes, NightBus and HandiDARTS) is comprehensive, while those who prefer to avoid vehicular traffic altogether have four SkyTrain stations to choose from.
For motorists commuting to other locales, there is the Trans-Canada Highway, Highway 99, Highway 91 and Highway 15.
No matter the business need, Surrey has the transportation solution, and the city is addressing upcoming needs with various strategies, including a well-publicized plan for an at-grade light rail transit (LRT) originating from City Centre to connect to numerous other town centres and the City of Langley.
