This is unique to Surrey:

 

SFU & City of Surrey Transportation Lecture Program

The Transportation Lecture Program is the first of its kind in B.C. 

.
.
This is an opportunity to learn more about transportation and the role it plays in the shaping and development of our City.  In partnership with the City Program – Simon Fraser University (SFU), the City of Surrey Engineering Department is offering a unique opportunity for citizens, professionals, and stakeholders to learn more about transportation in Surrey with topics including:
  • Who’s responsible for different types of transportation and their relationship
  • How transportation is funded, regionally and locally
  • How we plan new transportation systems and networks
  • How we operate and manage our roads
  • What the relationship is between transportation and land use, in a growing city like Surrey.
 
 

Even if you’re not a resident of Surrey, you’re eligible for the 10 sessions, starting September 14 in the new Surrey Central Library.  Classes occur once a week for three hours in the evening (total of 30 hours).  The program also includes a site visit to some of the development areas in Surrey for an on-site discussion.

And you’re elibible for a scholarship to cover most of the $300 tuition. 

Disclosure: this is a course hosted by the SFU City Program, of which I’m the director.  So in my completely unbiased opinion, this is a great deal for anyone interested in how their community actually works.  The staff is really committed and enthusiastic about the course – and the contact you have with them and other members of the class makes it a very special opportunity.
