Expo Line service to Production Way–University temporarily changing for construction

Expo Line service to Production Way–University temporarily changing for construction

If you take the SkyTrain’s Expo Line to and from Production Way–University and Lougheed Town Centre stations, you’ll want to read on.

Starting February 25, there are service pattern changes coming to the Expo Line, resulting in reduced service between Braid and Production Way–University Station.

This means you’ll have to wait a little longer for trains to and from Production Way–University or Lougheed Town Centre. Trains to and from these stations will run every 12 minutes all day instead of every 6-10 minutes.

Expo Line customers who travel to and from these stations should build in extra travel time and expect possible crowding on trains and platforms. And hot tip: always check when your train arrives. You’ll find screens at the platform, entrances, and exits.

As a result of the changes, there will now be three service patterns on the Expo Line:

  • Waterfront to King George
  • Waterfront to Production–Way University
  • And Waterfront to Braid (until 9:30 p.m.)

The Expo Line service pattern for construction

The next-train screen outside of Braid StationAt Sapperton and Braid stations, customers should pay close attention to next-train destination signs because both platforms will have some trains heading to Waterfront to maximize service frequencies at those stations.

Service on the Millennium Line, Canada Line, and the remainder of the Expo Line will be unaffected by this change.

So, why are we doing this?

Because SkyTrain is expanding! We’re adding more than 200 new SkyTrain cars as part of our SkyTrain Expansion Program.

The program is a series of infrastructure investments that will make our network ready for the addition of the province-built Broadway Subway Project (Millennium Line extension) and the Surrey Langley SkyTrain (Expo Line extension).

SkyTrain’s existing storage and maintenance facilities are at capacity, so we’re building a new Operations and Maintenance Centre near Braid Station.

As part of construction, we’ll need to close a track near Braid Station over the next two years, which means trains after Braid are less frequent.

Editor’s Note: The change’s start date was initially Feb. 10, but has been moved to Feb. 25.
