SkyTrain bike ban eased on starting this weekend

This just in: bikes are allowed back on SkyTrain starting Friday at 7 pm, and will also be allowed on for off-peak hours Monday through Friday afterwards.

Specifically, beginning on Monday Jan. 26, bicycles will permitted during off-peak hours. Restrictions will be in effect from 5 to 10 a.m. to downtown and 3 to 7 p.m. from downtown. (The Pattullo closure is making rush hour extend far past its usual hours — for example, yesterday’s evening rush ended at 8 p.m.)

Weekend SkyTrain service will be at normal weekend service levels, start and finish times. Service will be supplemented by extra trains if required.

For SkyTrain service next week, there will be a normal SkyTrain start-up (05:08 first departure from King George), but we are still aiming to operate 59 trains and extend rush hours if necessary.

And cyclists: we really do thank you for your patience during this time.
