Photos Of Passengers Evacuating Skytrains During System Wide Shutdown

For the second time in just 5 days, the skytrain’s expo and millennium lines suffered a 4 hour system wide shutdown. The result? Chaos. This time however (on Monday July 21) skytrain passengers were impatient and as a result opened train doors and began evacuating and walking the guideways even though they were advised not to.

Translink was of course against this as it was very dangerous and also considering train tracks have electricity running through the at all times.

Below are pictures of passengers doing something they probably never imaged.
