Canada Line Removes 20 Seats To Fit More Passengers

Canada Line

Finding a seat on the train just got a little more difficult.

If you’ve taken the Canada Line recently, you may have noticed there are fewer seating areas.

Translink has launched a new seating pilot project for the Canada Line to improve traffic flow. Two trains have been modified by removing 10 seats each.

Translink hopes the change will provide additional room near the train doors for passengers to get in and out easier, especially during peak hours.

Crowding near the train doors has led to minor service delays and this project sets out to improve the issue.
