Location

The station is located on 7th Ave between 21 St and 22 St in the western end of New Westminster, an area of low-density residential neighbourhoods. The main functionality of this station, however, is to connect passengers to regional bus routes as it is located close to a major crossroads of the region, where the Queensborough Bridge meets Marine Way and Stewardson Way.

As the station is located on a hill above the Queensborough interchange, it has expansive view of Fraser River and Mount Baker on a clear day.[2]

SkyTrain's operation and maintenance centre is located northwest of this station.

Service

  • 22nd Street bus loop is the terminus for a number of various regional bus routes serving Vancouver, Surrey, North Delta, Richmond and Langley.
  • Local connections to Queensborough Landing and Uptown New Westminster is also available at this station.
  • The station serves as the starting point of early morning Millennium trains toward VCC-Clark Station.
