History
OpenedMay 8, 1991
Rebuilt1999, 2006

The South Surrey Park and Ride is a major bus loop and park and ride facility for the South Surrey area. As part of the TransLink system, it is home to five routes serving White Rock and South Surrey with routes to Vancouver via Richmond (Bridgeport Station) as well as routes to Surrey Central and Newton in the northern part of the city.

The first South Surrey Park and Ride opened on May 8, 1991, located at 152 Street and Cranley Drive (now Mall Access for Southpoint Exchange).[1] On December 13, 1999, the park and ride was relocated so that the Southpoint Exchange mall could be constructed. The second site was located at 32 Avenue and 32 Avenue Diversion, a short distance from the original site.[2][3] The current park and ride facility was opened on June 26, 2006, adjacent to the Highway 99 and King George Boulevard interchange.[4]

In November 2013, an expansion of 367 parking spots was opened, and a $2-per-day parking fee was introduced.[5]
