West Coast Express service canceled due to protest

ALL West Coast Express trains heading eastbound from Waterfront to Mission will not run on Thursday afternoon due to protesters blocking Canadian Pacific tracks on the Pitt River rail bridge.

TransLink said it has been advised by Canadian Pacific Railway Police that it will not be able to run any more West Coast Express service on Thursday. TransLink is asking customers to use SkyTrain and bus instead.

Coast Mountain Bus Company (CMBC) is examining options for additional bus service and details will follow. 

Further updates will be provided if necessary on Twitter (http://www.twitter.com/@TransLink) and via email.

TransLink is recommending customers who normally use West Coast Express east of Coquitlam :

  • Take SkyTrain to Coquitlam Central Station.
  • Take either the 701 or the R3 RapidBus from Coquitlam Central Station
  • There is limited 701 service from Haney Place to Mission City, but capacity and frequency are not high. Please use our trip planner to find the schedule for 701 trips to Mission City
