South of the Fraser

Surrey, Delta, White Rock and Langleys

Surrey has more licensed commercial vehicles than Vancouver

The number of commercial vehicles registered in Surrey continues to rise.

Despite a small dip from 2010 to 2011 the number of licensed commercial vehicles rose from 35,459 in 1999 to 48,508 in 2011.

Contrast this to vehicles registered in Vancouver: 35,586 in 1999 to 32,519 in 2011.

These statistics come from B.C. Stats, via ICBC.

It's hard to know what to make of this. Does it signify a shift of manufacturing and distribution away from Vancouver?

The other area south of the Fraser that was included in the statistics was Abbotsford, which has also seen a steady growth of commercial vehicles. It's increased from 15,934 in 1999 to 20,160 in 2011.

Here's a handy chart. Hover your cursor to get the number.

This site is experimental. See About (top right) for more, or Blog for meta-information. The working goal is to create an almanac of items, tidbits of information and methods of gathering information.

Right now the site is biased to just south of the Fraser River, within the northern reaches of great City of Surrey, but there is some foraging further afield.
