The 18 politicians are slated to discuss transportation opportunities along the Douglas Street corridor. Both Saanich and Victoria have identified Douglas Street as a major transit route, as there are ongoing discussions about building a light-rail transit line along the street.

Presentations from the engineering departments, as well as B.C. Transit, are expected.

The meeting begins at 4 p.m. at 770 Vernon Ave.
