While many farm friends describe what a special experience it is for them to visit the UBC Farm in the midst of an urban environment, we also hear about the challenge of accessing the farm by public transit. A recent re-route of the TransLink 41 bus has improved the farm’s accessibility, but we now have an opportunity to bring public transit directly to the farm gates!
UBC Campus and Community Planning is working with TransLink to change the campus shuttle routes (C20 and C22). A direct shuttle to the UBC Farm would support UBC’s sustainable transportation plan, improve students’ and researchers’ access to unique academic opportunities at the farm, and create new possibilities for university-community programming for other members of our community. Please help us demonstrate the need for direct public transit to the UBC Farm:
- Online consultation: Open until Wednesday December 12th. Participate in this short online survey.
- Campus+ Community Planning Public Open House: November 26, 4-7pm, Thunderbird Arena (6066 Thunderbird Boulevard, Wesbrook Mall entrance). No registration required.
Warm thanks for your ongoing support!
