Vancouver SkyTrain

Vancouver Rapid Transit

SkyTrain is an urban rapid transit system in Metro Vancouver. It uses fully automated trains running
mostly on elevated tracks. SkyTrain's 68.7 km of track makes it one of the longest auto-operating
rapid transit systems in the world. The system has a total of 47 stations on three lines. The Expo Line
was built in time for the Expo 86 World's Fair. The Millennium Line opened in 2002, and the Canada Line
opened in 2009 in advance of the 2010 Winter Olympics.

SkyTrain network carries a week-average of 240,000 passengers on the Expo and Millennium lines
together, and 110,000 passengers on the Canada Line. The terminal station for three lines is
the Waterfront underground station. However, the site of station for Canada Line is different
from the other two SkyTrain lines.

It uses a proof-of-payment fare system shared with local bus services, and is policed by the South
Coast British Columbia Transportation Authority Police Service. SkyTrain Attendants are present
to provide first aid, directions and customer service, inspect fares, monitor train faults, and operate
the trains manually if necessary.
