VANCOUVER (NEWS1130) – UPDATE: 6:10 p.m. Canada Line is still running end-to-end but now is skipping Olympic Village outbound (leaving Downtown Vancouver) and stopping normally at Olympic Village inbound, which is the flip-side of what they’d been doing this afternoon.

UPDATE
3:32 p.m. Service on the Canada Line is back to normal except for some issues around Olympic Village Station. Trains going into downtown Vancouver are running straight through.

UPDATE: 2:30 p.m. The problem causing up to 30 minute delays on the Canada Line has been fixed. Trains are expected to be running on regular schedule shortly.


Last week it was the Expo Line, today it’s the Canada Line.

Up until 2 p.m. today, the Canada Line had some kind of problem preventing the trains from communicating with the main control centre.

Trains were running every 30 minutes between the King Edward and Waterfront stations as repairs were made near Olympic Village.

To help deal with the back-up of passengers, TransLink kept a bus bridge in place to get travellers between the Broadway-City Hall and the Waterfront stations. The buses stopped at every Canada Line station.

This woman admits to News1130 that she was not impressed. “It’s a little bit frustrating because now I’m looking at options and I know I’ll be late.”

“I’m actually presenting at a conference and I’m most likely going miss my presentation because of the train and all the issues with the buses being last too,” says this woman.
