Delays plague SkyTrain Canada Line's morning service

DH Vancouver Staff Jul 27, 2016 3:29 am

Transit users on SkyTrain’s Canada Line can expect further delays into the noon hour due to a track issue between Bridgeport and Marine Drive stations.

Delays began at approximately 7:30 am during the morning rush hour and caused large crowds to form at a number of stations, including Bridgeport Station where thousands of bus passengers transfer to train services daily.

Trains are still rolling systemwide, but they must share a single track across the Fraser River.

At this time, trains are arriving closer to their normal frequency at every 10 minutes from Bridgeport to Richmond-Brighouse stations and Bridgeport to YVR Airport stations. For the mainline from Bridgeport to Waterfront stations, trains are operating every five minutes – up from the usual three minutes during peak hour and mid-day┬áschedules.

A bus bridge shuttle service is operating between Richmond-Brighouse and Bridgeport stations until the problem is fully resolved.

TransLink anticipates regular service will resume at approximately noon.
