Exciting news for our customers who use Metrotown Station: the first four of eight new escalators—two up and two down—entered service on Monday, July 24!
These escalators at the newly opened west stationhouse will significantly improve passenger flow and access for our customers who can now enter and exit the platform via two escalators, two elevators, or one of two staircases from Central Boulevard.
Compass fare gates and vending machines have been installed at the west stationhouse and are operational. Customers are reminded to continue to tap in and out.
This is a major milestone for the station. Although both the centre and west stationhouses are now open, upgrades continue at Metrotown Station. We thank everyone for their patience while we complete this essential work.
In summer 2018, two more pairs of escalators will go into service when the rebuilt east stationhouse opens. When fully complete, the upgraded station will include:
- Rebuilt east stationhouse and addition of new centre and west stationhouses
- New stairs and escalators
- Replacement of the original elevator with three new elevators accessible via a new central entry
- An upgraded bus exchange on Central Boulevard
- New secure parking area for bicycles
We’ll make sure to keep you updated on all the upgrades as they are completed.
