In an effort to make it “easier for people to plan ahead and take transit,” TransLink has announced it is adding extra service times to its schedule this Canada Day long weekend.
Effective on – and for – Sunday, July 1 only:
- SkyTrain service on Expo and Millennium lines will run more frequently and later into the night, with the last train leaving Waterfront Station at 1:16 am;
- Canada Line will run rush-hour peak service, with every available train in service after the Canada Place fireworks. Last train from Waterfront departs at 1:15 a.m.
- Many bus routes will operate on extended or modified schedules and routes due to event detours.
- SeaBus will provide extra and extended service, with sailings every 15 minutes, until 11:45 pm. The last SeaBus sailing from Waterfront Station is at 1:22 am. A third SeaBus will also be added to provide extra service through the afternoon and evening.
At Waterfront Station, access is being modified to ensure customer comfort and safety during crowded periods. Service modifications include:
- The main entrance to Waterfront Station, off West Cordova Street, will be entrance only, beginning at 4 pm. The side entrances into Waterfront Station will be exit only.
- Passengers wanting to connect to Canada Line, Expo Line or SeaBus will enter one of three queueing lines on the north side of West Cordova Street.
- On Monday, July 2, bus, SeaBus and SkyTrain will operate on a Monday/Holiday schedule. West Coast Express will not be in service.
Extra staff and signage will also be on-hand to help passengers, the company added.
