Chaos Wednesday

And SkyTrain never breaks down or stops service?

Just saying.

Commuter chaos amid problems on Expo, Canada Lines

By Online Journalist  Global News

Passengers using the Expo and Canada Lines on Wednesday had to deal with major delays after both lines experienced separate problems.

The Canada Line was dealing with a stalled train that has disrupted service from Bridgeport Station in Richmond to Oakridge Station in Vancouver that was resolved shortly after 10:30 a.m.

A bus bridge was put in place during the outage, and TransLink warned that while it was in the process of restoring normal service “there are still delays, gaps in service and passenger crowding.”

The bus bridge was left in place to try and cut down on crowding.

On the Expo Line, TransLink said a “medical emergency” had disrupted service at Joyce-Collingwood Station around 9 a.m., closing the station down entirely.

TransLink implemented a shuttle train and a bus bridge connecting Nanaimo and Metrotown Stations.

Service began to fully resume around 12:45 p.m. and Joyce-Collingwood was fully reopened.

In TransLink speak, medical emergency means an attempted suicide or suicide.
