Joyce-Collingwood Station Upgrades Progress Report

August 08, 2018

VANCOUVER, BC — Work continues at Joyce–Collingwood Station as part of TransLink’s Maintenance and Repair Program to improve aging infrastructure across the system. The project reaches a milestone with completion of a new bus loop and the start of upgrades to the west stationhouse.

Phase one upgrades to the east stationhouse were complete in June 2017 and the improved east stationhouse bus loop opens August 13. Customers will enjoy larger shelters and a new, more convenient permanent stop for the 28, 41, and 43 bus routes.

Phase two upgrades to the west stationhouse are underway with an expected completion date of spring 2019. The upgrades include a new elevator and escalator, an extended roof over the SkyTrain platform to keep customers dry, better lighting and a redesigned interior, and additional pedestrian and cycling improvements.

We thank everyone for their patience while we continue improving the station.

Customers and neighbours should be aware of the upcoming changes:

West stationhouse closure

From August 13 to spring 2019 , the west stationhouse will close and customers can catch their bus at the new bus loop adjacent to the east stationhouse. The bus loop has larger shelters and is the new permanent location for the 28 and 41/43 routes.

Skip-Stop SkyTrain service

From August 17 until the fall, tiling work resumes at Joyce–Collingwood Station on the eastbound platform following completion of tiling work on the westbound platform. On Fridays at 9 p.m. until the end of service on Sundays, eastbound trains will not stop at Joyce–Collingwood.

Customers travelling east who wish to exit at Joyce–Collingwood must:

  • Travel east past Joyce–Collingwood to Patterson Station;
  • Cross the platform to board a westbound train back to Joyce–Collingwood;
  • Exit at Joyce–Collingwood Station from the westbound platform. 

Customers wanting to board eastbound trains at Joyce–Collingwood will have to catch the westbound train to 29th Avenue Station, cross the platform, and take the next train heading east. Westbound trains will continue to stop at Joyce–Collingwood as normal.

Extra staff will be at Joyce-Collingwood, 29th Avenue and Patterson stations to assist.

Traffic changes

Later this summer, Vanness Avenue between the west stationhouse bus loop and McGeer Street will permanently become one-way traffic (westbound only), to improve road safety and ensure safe bus operations.
