This week, TransLink will hold an open house for the community to discuss the feasibility of building a gondola to carry transit passengers up Burnaby Mountain.
It could result in the elimination of buses going up the hill to Simon Fraser University's main campus.
The meeting will take place on Wednesday (May 25) from 5 to 8 p.m. at Cameron elementary school (9540 Erickson Drive, Burnaby).
A new cable car would resemble the Peak 2 Peak Gondola at Whistler. It would run from the Production Way–University SkyTrain station to the top of the mountain.
By this summer, TransLink expects to complete a planning study and a business case on the Burnaby Mountain Gondola Transit Project.
A preconsultation phase was completed in November, which involved six small meetings of stakeholders, including students, residents, environmentalists, and residents.
The second phase begins this month, and includes more small group meetings and two open houses.
