There are many tidbits about Canada Line coming in today, so I thought I would put them together in one big post.

More photos and video

As the Canada Line continues on, more photos and video are being sent in. Here’s a small gallery from Ron Higgs, and one from Rvie. CTV BC also has a gallery.

Rvie also sent along a musical Canada Line montage video and a video of the North Arm Bridge. There’s also a neat HD video at John Chow’s blog, where he interviews people in the long Waterfront lineup!

And here’s my Flickr pictures from the opening: this is the opening ceremony, and here’s some randoms from opening day.

I’ll add these links to the main photo and video post and the first ride/opening day stories post.

Waterfront Station opening (and Sunday closing) info

Here’s another piece of handy info for early-morning/late-night Canada Line riders accessing Waterfront Station.

While the first Canada Line train leaves Waterfront Station at 4:50 a.m., the main portion of Waterfront Station is closed until 5:30 a.m. (That’s the big red building off Cordova St and the foot of Granville).

So please use the Waterfront Station entrance on the street at Hastings and Granville if you need to ride the Canada Line before 5:30 a.m.!

Similarly, customers for late-night trains on Sundays will have to exit Waterfront Station via Hastings & Granville from 12:15 a.m. (Monday) until closing.
