Hooray, the Evergreen Extension is almost here!

The Evergreen Extension is The Evergreen Line renamed. 

The Evergreen Extension includes six new stations which will be part of the Millennium Line when they open in late December. They'll extend the Millennium Line to Coquitlam through Burnaby and Port Moody.

Exciting! But before the extension launches, you'll need to change some of your travel patterns.

Here's what you need to know starting October 22nd:

  • The Expo Line will now have two routes. One route will continue to travel between Waterfront Station and King George Station. 
  • A second Expo Line route will run between Waterfront Station and Production Way–University Station.
  • The Millennium Line will run between VCC-Clark Station and Lougheed Town Centre Station, continuing on to the Evergreen Extension when it’s open.

To see how the changes to the SkyTrain network may affect your travel plans October 22 and beyond, visit the Trip Planner -

You’ll be able to transfer from the Expo Line to the Millennium Line at Production Way–University, Lougheed Town Centre or Commercial–Broadway stations. 

And, you’ll be able to transfer to the Expo Line at any station between Waterfront and Columbia stations. 

Once the Evergreen Extension opens, our SkyTrain network will become the longest, driverless, automated rapid transit system in the world.
