Expect lengthy delays this evening on SkyTrain’s Expo and Millennium Lines.

TransLink has stated that systemwide holds are occurring due to a software issue that has affected a track switch between Joyce and Royal Oak stations. Major overcrowding issues are being reported along the system’s stations.

The issue began just after 6 p.m. and there is no estimate on when normal service will resume. Technicians are attempting to resolve the problem.

In the meantime, a bus bridge is being set-up between Joyce and Edmonds stations as well as from Edmonds to King George. Millennium Line trains are only running between VCC-Clark and Columbia stations.

More on this as it develops…

UPDATE at 7:20 p.m. – The Millennium Line is operating from Edmonds to VCC-Clark Stations while the Expo Line is operating from Waterfront to Nanaimo stations and Edmonds to King George stations. A bus bridge remains between Joyce and Edmonds stations.

UPDATE at 9:50 p.m. – The issues are now fixed. Regular service is resuming.
