Getting to the 2014 BMO Marathon start line

 

runners

The Oakridge/41st Station on the Canada Line is the closest stop to get you to the start line.

 

Kudos to everyone tying up their laces on May 2nd to run 21.2 km or 42.2 km! Whether you are planning to run or cheer, head to the start line in Queen Elizabeth Park via the Canada Line Oakridge/41st Station.

 

Service adjustments:

 

Canada Line: The first train from Waterfront Station is at 4:48 a.m. and from Richmond Brighouse at 5:02 a.m. To prevent line-ups before the event, portable fare boxes will be set up at Waterfront, Vancouver City-Centre and Yaletown-Roundhouse Canada Line stations.

 

Coast Mountain Bus: Regular Sunday service will be provided, with some routes modified at certain times during the day to accommodate the marathon.

 

Shuttle Bus: Translink, in partnership with the Vancouver International Marathon Society, is offering a free shuttle service from Scott Road Station, Lonsdale Quay, Brentwood Mall and Patterson Station to the start line. Space is limited, and is booked on a first come first serve basis.

 

Cyclists: TravelSmart is sponsoring BEST’s Bicycle Valet, which will offer secure temporary bike storage for up to 120 bikes, free of charge. The valet will be open from 6 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Bute Street, between Hastings and Cordova.

 

Reminders:

  1. SkyTrain’s Expo and Millennium Lines, West Vancouver Blue Bus and SeaBus will operate their regular Sunday service. There is no Sunday service on the West Coast Express.

  2. The Train2Main will be in operation for all runners or spectators travelling to or from the Main Street-Science World Station.
