Sep 9 2017, 6:06 am

Acting as a major transfer point between the two Expo Line routes, if you need to access Surrey or Lougheed odds are you’ll end up walking around Columbia Station.

So much more than just a transfer point, Columbia is situated in trendy, downtown New Westminister. Skip the coffee date and go to a juicery, walk around the pier or get social at New West’s hottest club.

See below for a full list of ideas.
