A:  Transportation is a top priority. We must work with TransLink to provide Maple Ridge with more and improved services: a rapid express bus direct to the nearest SkyTrain station; better West Coast Express service that takes into account that people do not always work a traditional 9-5 schedule; improved bus service to the eastern part of Maple Ridge to keep up with the rapid growth and service for seniors and youth to allow them to travel to different parts of Maple Ridge so that they are not isolated and are able to enjoy the amenities we have.
