UPDATE:

Service between King Edward Station and Waterfront has now been restored, but there is reduced service between Olympic Village and Waterfront, and all customers will need to switch trains at Olympic Village Station.

As a result, there will continue to be delays and crowding at some stations – particularly Olympic Village.

ORIGINAL STORY: 

There is currently no Canada Line service between King Edward Station and Waterfront.

According to TransLink, customers travelling from Richmond toward Vancouver must change trains at King Edward Station.

TransLink said additional buses have been deployed to help manage the crowds.

Expo and Millennium Lines are unaffected, and are running normally.

Additional security and Transit Police have also been depolyed the stations to ensure passenger safety and crowd control, as well.

For transit users seeking alternate routes, TransLink is encouraging people to consult the online Trip Planner  and select “Don’t Use SkyTrain” under advanced search settings, or contact customer information desk (604-953-3333) for trip planning advice.

While no specific time was given as to when the problem would be fixed, TransLink said it is working to resolve the issue as quickly as possible.
