Canada Line opening: lineups and wait times

Canada Line opening: lineups and wait times

Today’s opening event has proved very popular (43,000 people so far!), and the crowds outside stations in downtown Vancouver, Richmond and YVR are currently producing 1-2h waits.

Because of the lengthy waits, you should be in line by 6:30, or you may not get aboard, as the stations will close at 9 with the last trains completing their trips.  No one will be left behind on their return journey, but anyone intending to start a trip after 6:30 would not be able to do so from those stations.

There are currently no waits at Langara, Olympic Village, Broadway-City Hall and Marine Drive right now, however. You can board therN but just be aware that trains are quite full!
