Walk this way… at Metrotown Station

Metrotown map
Starting Monday, May 8, 2017 we’re temporarily changing the way you enter and exit Metrotown Station.

To accommodate the widening of the west walkway adjacent to the bus loop, the walkway will temporarily close.

There will be no access between the west crosswalk onto Central Boulevard to the main station entrance during the time of work.

The walkway is expected to reopen on Friday evening on May 12 2017.

We’ll be starting week-long construction on the walkway that when complete will be three metres wide — double the width of the existing walkway – allowing for safer customer access to and from Metrotown Station.

Follow the leader

Look for our friendly neighbourhood traffic flaggers to help guide you on your way!

We’ll also have additional staff near the bus loop and the station to ensure you can easily make connections to where you need to go.

The walkway closure will not affect SkyTrain or bus service.

Customer Alert: Metrotown C6 & C7 users, your final stop is changing

SnipImage
Calling all C6 and C7 users!

The terminus stop (aka the final stop) at Metrotown Station will temporarily move for upgrade work at Metrotown Station.

The stop at westbound Beresford Street and Telford Avenue (stop #59544) will temporarily move to a new stop on Sussex Avenue northbound and the nearside of Beresford Street (stop #60194).

The routing of the C6 and C7 will not change.

The stop will be in a new location until the summer so upgrade work on the new east stationhouse can continue.

These upgrades allow increased capacity and provide additional opportunities to make improvements to customer safety inside the station.

When complete, the features of the new station include:

  • two new pairs of up and down escalators, three new elevators and new stairs to improve access
  • more space on the platforms to enable the system to expand for future customers
  • improved station design with better lighting and visibility
  • improved bus connections
  • new Bike Parkade
