Salish Express – Langford Mayor Supports E&N Railway

Once the E&N rail line is restored, the Island Corridor Foundation says one of its first priorities is to get commuter rail service up and running.It would be called the ‘Salish Express,’ and local mayors, especially on the Westshore hope it will be the solution to a commuter headache that has plagued the region for years.Once the rail line is up and running, the Island Corridor Foundation says the commuter line could be active as early as May 2013.

“Today is the day that rail service was saved on Vancouver Island”

The line would run from Nanaimo to Victoria early in the morning, then back and forth from Langford to Victoria a number of times. The reverse would happen in the afternoon.The Island Corridor Foundation says the final stop will likely be at the Roundhouse in Vic West, and a bus loop will be included in the design to get people off the train, onto buses heading into the city.
