TransLink is warning transit users to expect planned late-night service disruptions and changes on the Expo Line to allow for crews to conduct critical maintenance.

Work on replacing running rail and rail pads on the Expo Line will begin at 9:30 pm tonight and last through the end of service for the day. It will continue every night through Tuesday, February 21.

However, the start of the disruptions will be delayed by one hour, beginning at 10:30 pm, on Sunday, February 19 due to the expected high volumes for the Vancouver Canucks’ home game.

Passengers traveling on the Expo Line during this track maintenance period can expect delays of between 15 minute and 30 minutes. Trains may stop longer at some stations.

Temporary changes to service include:

  • The single-tracking of trains from Main Street-Science World Station to Commercial-Broadway Station after 9:30 pm.
  • The operation of Expo Line trains only between Waterfront Station and King George Station. There will be no Expo Line service between Production Way-University Station and Columbia Station.
  • Expo Line service┬áto Sapperton Station, Braid Station, Lougheed Town Centre Station, and Production Way-University Station will be replaced with trains operating between New Westminster Station and VCC-Clark Station.
  • Passengers from other stations on the Expo Line can change trains to the replacement service at Commercial-Broadway Station, New Westminster Station, and Columbia Station.
