Templeton Station is a SkyTrain station on the Canada Line in Richmond, British Columbia, Canada, south of Vancouver. The station is located on the Grauer Lands on eastern Sea Island, along the airport branch of the Canada Line. The Vancouver International Airport Authority contributed up to $300 million toward the airport branch of the Canada Line, which includes YVR-Airport Station.[2]

Templeton Station serves the residential (Burkeville), commercial (McArthurGlen Designer Outlet shopping centre), office, and light industrial area at the eastern end of Sea Island, providing direct rapid transit service to Vancouver International Airport (YVR) and Downtown Vancouver. The station also provides the most direct access to Iona Island and Iona and McDonald Beach Regional Parks in the northwest, and to the Airport's south terminal in the southwest. Templeton and Sea Island Centre stations are both located at-grade (at ground level) to allow for the future construction of an elevated aircraft taxiway over the Canada Line guideway.[2]

In its 20-year master plan developed in 2007, YVR identified the possibilities of locating certain terminal facilities (such as passenger and baggage check-in) at the station in order to relieve congestion at existing terminal curbside spaces, and providing new long-term public and employee parking near the station.[3] Self-service passenger check-in kiosks have been installed at Templeton Station, alongside several other stations on the Canada Line.[4]

A $5 surcharge applies on cash fares purchased at vending machines at Templeton Station. However, day passes, FareSaver tickets, monthly passes and any other prepaid fare types are exempt from the surcharge. Travel between YVR–Airport, Sea Island Centre and Templeton stations is free.[5]

Pedestrian access is on the north side of the station.
