Service resumes at Waterfront Station after shutdown due to suspicious package

Dec 21 2019, 5:42 pm

Service at Vancouver’s Waterfront station resumed Saturday evening after a closure earlier in the afternoon because a suspicious package was found on a train.

Sgt. Clint Hampton with the Metro Vancouver Transit Police told Daily Hive that officers determined the package was “not a threat.”

There was no service on the Expo Line, Canada Line, or SeaBus between approximately 4:30 pm and 7 pm Saturday.

TransLink advised customers there may be gaps in service as SeaBuses and trains get back on their normal schedules.

During the service disruption, trains on the Expo Line were only running normally between Stadium-Chinatown Station and King George Station. Trains on the Canada Line were only running south of Olympic Village Station, with a shuttle train running between Olympic Village and VCC-Clark stations.

Initially, TransLink announced the Expo Line at Waterfront Station was closed. But shortly after, they announced other services at the station were affected as well.

The closure resulted in heavy delays for transit users.
