Here are the names chosen for the Broadway Subway stations
VANCOUVER -- Officials have announced the names of the stations that will be part of the Broadway Subway project.
They'd also provided tentative names at that time.
In Thursday's update, representatives from all levels of government and TransLink revealed that not much had changed in a year.
All but two of the stations will be called the names first announced on Sept. 18, 2019.
The names are as follows:
- Great Northern Way – Emily Carr
- Mount Pleasant
- Broadway – City Hall
- Oak – Vancouver General Hospital (VGH)
- South Granville
Emily Carr was initially just called Great Northern Way, and Oak – VGH was initially called Fairview – VGH.
TransLink said the name is due to its proximity to Emily Carr University of Art and Design, which is named for the B.C. artist, author and teacher.
An artist or team of artists from the school will complete a public art installation for the station.
The new transit line is expected to be in service in 2025.
