New fare gates are coming to Granville Station’s Dunsmuir Street entrance

More than 40,000 customers use Granville Station every day, making it one of our busiest stations on the system!

That’s why we’ll be adding two additional fare gates to the Dunsmuir Street entrance to ensure it continues to meet the needs of our growing ridership.

The Dunsmuir Street entrance will close and there will be no elevator service at the station from the end of service on Thursday, March 29 until the start of service on Tuesday, April 3 so crews can install the new fare gates.

During the closure, customers can access the station through both the Granville Street and Seymour Street entrances. Expo Line customers requiring the use of an elevator will need to go to Stadium–Chinatown Station or Burrard Station. SkyTrain Attendants will be present at Granville Station to assist customers during the work.

We recognize that this is an impact to our customers and we thank everyone for their patience while we improve capacity at Granville Station.

Passengers are encouraged to visit for the latest updates.

    I know that it would require moving the CVMs but Brentwood really needs more than just three fairgates, especially with the mall expansion opening next year

    I head out of Downtown in the morning rush hour through the Dunsmuir Granville entrance, like half the days there’s no one-way entry gate so someone tries to skip the crowd and use the furthest gate, blocking everyone trying to get to the train. Can you improve your process in the station so there’s always one gate dedicated to letting people go in towards the train?

    Hi Meraki, if you haven’t already, definitely leave your suggestion at Thanks!
