SkyTrain stations

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.
