List of Vancouver SkyTrain stations

SkyTrain Official System Map

The Vancouver SkyTrain is a three-line urban mass transit system in the metropolitan area of Vancouver, Canada managed by TransLink. The Expo Line was built for the Expo 86 World's Fair;[1] the Millennium Line opened in 2002,[2] followed by the Canada Line in 2009.[3] The Expo Line and Millennium lines are operated by the British Columbia Rapid Transit Company on behalf of TransLink.[4] The Canada Line is owned by InTransitBC, and operated by ProTrans BC, an SNC-Lavalin company.[5][6] The Expo and Millennium lines use Bombardier's Advanced Rapid Transit technology,[7] while the Canada Line technology is provided by Hyundai Rotem.[5] The SkyTrain is the oldest fully automated driverless rapid transit system in the world.[3]

The SkyTrain was conceived as a legacy project of Expo 86 and the first line was finished in 1985 in time to showcase the fair's theme: "Transportation and Communication: World in Motion – World in Touch". The SkyTrain connected TransLink, which took over BC Transit's SkyTrain operation, proposed a two-phase expansion: The first phase was a C$1.2 billion Millennium Line from New Westminster to the Vancouver Community College via Lougheed Town Centre. The second phase was a C$730 million Coquitlam line from Lougheed Town Centre to Coquitlam Centre via Port Moody and a Western line from Vancouver Community College to Granville Street via the Broadway Corridor.[10] The first phase, now known as the Millennium Line, began operating in 2002. The line, serving north of Vancouver, Burnaby, and New Westminster, originally added ten stations; Lake City Way opened later in 2003,[2] and VCC–Clark opened in 2006, which completed the Millennium Line.[11] In 2004, TransLink approved a 19-kilometre (12 mi) line connecting Vancouver with Richmond and the Vancouver International Airport, which at the time was projected to cost $1.72 billion.[12] The line, now known as the Canada Line, opened in August 2009.[3] The construction of the proposed Coquitlam line, the Evergreen Line, has begun and is scheduled to complete by 2016. The line is an extension of the Millennium line, will consist of 6 new stations and terminate at the David Lam Campus of Douglas College[13]

There are 47 stations on the SkyTrain system. 20 stations are served by the Expo Line, 28 by the Millennium Line, and 16 by the Canada Line—Richmond–Brighouse and YVR–Airport are the southbound terminals for the two Canada Line branches. In terms of average weekday station boardings in 2003, Commercial–Broadway[a] is the most highly used station, while Sapperton is the least.[14]
