Summary

There were more delays on the Expo Line Friday due to a track issue

A shuttle train was running between Burrard and Stadium-Chinatown SkyTrain stations

TransLink said customers had to transfer trains at Stadium if they want to continue their journey

VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) – It’s been a problem-filled few days for TransLink.

After major weather- and switch-related delays on Wednesday, and significant problems with tracks on Thursday, it appears the SkyTrain had taken yet another hit.

The Expo Line has reopened after several hours of it being out of service.


A shuttle train was in effect on the Expo Line between Burrard and Stadium-Chinatown SkyTrain stations due to another track issue.

“There is currently no Expo Line service in or out of Waterfront Station,” TransLink said in a statement earlier. “We will be deploying additional bus services to assist passengers.”

TransLink said customers had to transfer trains at Stadium if they want to continue their journey.


The silver lining, if there is one, is that the Canada Line and Millennium Line are operating normally.
