Surrey’s transit system is a great option for getting to Surrey, however Surrey is extremely geographically spread out, with lots of unique sites and exciting events that may not always be easily accessible by bus. To truly see all that Surrey has to offer, driving or carpooling is usually your best bet.
Surrey is big, but getting around by bike within our six neighbourhoods can be a great way to see the sites, take a path less travelled, and perhaps even come across a new experience along the way. What’s more, public transit can also be bike-friendly with skytrains and many busses having bike-friendly options.
