The transit company is looking for feedback on which side the gondola should go up the mountain

BURNABY (NEWS 1130) — TransLink wants public feedback as it moves forward with the idea of creating a gondola up Burnaby Mountain.

A new round of public consultation for the proposed gondola to SFU is open for the next three weeks.

Translink wants to know which route options people would prefer.

One would come up the east side of the Mountain from Production Way, another would be up the west side of the hill from Lake City. A third option would also start from Production Way, but then snake along Gaglardi Way before heading up to the university.
