TransLink to extend Canada Line service
Canada Line commuters travelling between Vancouver and Richmond will be happy to hear that TransLink is adding more trains and extending peak service hours beginning on Wednesday.
There will be two extra trains added during peak hours, up to 16 from 14, and peak service times will be extended to start 30 minutes earlier at 6:30 a.m. and end an hour later at 7 p.m.
On the weekends and holidays, peak service will continue to start at 9 a.m. but will run an hour later until 7 p.m.
This means that all Canada Line train departure and arrival times during peak periods will change. For the rest of August, the times shown on TransLink's trip planner may not be correct.
TransLink spokesperson Ken Hardy said that anyone with time-sensitive connections should allow extra travel time.
All transit schedules will be updated on the trip planner by Labour Day.
