Evergreen means go on December 2 and that is cause for some major celebrating!

Come out to Coquitlam Central Station on the Evergreen Extension this Friday from 10:30 a.m. until 7:30 p.m. for a huge community celebration!

TransLink, along with our partners and local community groups are hosting a day of family-friendly fun.

I am immensely proud of the project team, our partners and all our staff across the enterprise who have worked tirelessly to see this project through. We now have the longest, driverless, automated rapid-transit system in the world. I am looking forward to seeing everyone on opening day. Come experience the new Evergreen Extension first-hand.”

– Kevin Desmond, TransLink CEO
