Canada Line delayed in both directions Friday morning
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.
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.
