33 new “next train” signs are coming to SkyTrain stations on the Expo and Millennium Lines.
Similar to the Canada Line, this means you’ll know exactly when your train is coming, upcoming trains and where they’re going.
Work begins at Lougheed and Edmonds stations this month, with work continuing at remaining Expo and Millennium Line stations (excluding the Evergreen Extension) through 2020.

In total, TransLink is adding approximately 280 new customer information signs, including ‘next train’ signs on platforms as well as new SkyTrain status signs outside the station – the first exterior station signs on the system.
The new signs are all part of the SkyTrain Customer Communications Upgrades project to provide better real-time service information for customers – new information signs, better sounding announcements, and more security measures at 33 SkyTrain stations along the Expo and Millennium Lines.
