Single tracking – when trains travel on the same track in alternating directions – will happen at Royal Oak and Edmonds stations from 9:30 p.m. until the end of service.

  • Expo Line trains will operate between Waterfront and King George stations, with additional trains until midnight between Waterfront and Metrotown
  • Expo service to Sapperton, Braid, Lougheed Town Centre and Production Way–University will be replaced with trains operating between New Westminster and VCC–Clark.
