DOO DOO DOO, this is an Expo Line train to…. #MyTransLink! This week, our fun photo series was looking for your shots of Metro Vancouver’s first SkyTrain line, the Expo Line. Each week, we showcase your best shots of transit life in and around our region. Take a look at the week that was and scroll to the bottom to grab the theme for the upcoming week.
There’s a reason it’s called Beautiful British Columbia, and this weeks #MyTransLink showcases so much of the beauty of the region. This time we’ve got sunny summer days and sprawling blue skies – a recurring theme among your recent transit shots, and the compilation below is no exception. Check it out and see what’s been seen on and around our system!
“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.” – Elliott Erwitt
Bridges, buses, trains, tracks, trolley wires. These things may seem ordinary to some but are utterly inspiring to others!
Looking at someone’s photograph gives the viewer a unique glimpse into the person behind the lens and how they see the world and their subject matter.
We have some amazing and creative transit photographers in our region and we’re sharing more of their work in this edition of #MyTransLink!
This time around we’ve got poetry, we’ve got bridges, we’ve got artist renderings and more!
The opening of the Evergreen Extension was a milestone event for TransLink and for Metro Vancouver. This significant expansion of our integrated transit network brings us to 79 km of SkyTrain meaning that TransLink now operates the world’s longest fully-automated rapid transit system!

The Evergreen Extension boasts beautiful new open concept stations with plenty of glass allowing for natural light, picturesque views and beautiful public art.
If you haven’t yet had a chance to check out the new stations, have a look at some of the shots captured by transit enthusiast Ivan Chan. Or better yet, become your very own #EvergreenExplorer by checking out some of the great java stops along the new route.
