What – SkyTrain Ka-Put Again?
For a transit system that it’s supporters claims to be almost problem free, the proprietary ART/ALRT mini-metro has stopped working several times in the past week, mostly during the rush hour.
There is a new word in TransLink’s lexicon and it is “timed out”, what ever that means.
As for smooth talking Drennan’s claim that “this delay has nothing to do with the changes to the SkyTrain system“, I wouldn’t believe a word of it as truth and honesty has “timed out” at TransLink.

TransLink says normal service has resumed on the Expo and Millennium SkyTrain lines, after a problem with a train at the Lougheed Town Centre Station earlier Monday morning.
Spokesperson Anne Drennan:
“We had a timed-out train on the Millennium line in the Lougheed Town Centre Station area. That train had to be driven manually into the platform. All normal service has resumed. People will notice some delays for a short period of time with some crowding on the platforms.”
Drennan expects that to clear up shortly.
She says this delay has nothing to do with the changes to the SkyTrain system that went into effect on Saturday.
