SkyTrain Fleet Expansion

With funding approved for the 10-Year Vision for Metro Vancouver transportation, we'll be adding more than 200 Expo and Millennium Line SkyTrain cars to our fleet.

When these cars go into service they will make up about half of the cars in the SkyTrain fleet.

Engagement Summary

Before we select a contractor to build these new SkyTrain cars, we asked our customers about some key features – seating layout options and flex areas – because we know these are areas that can help to improve the customer experience.

From Jan. 14 to 25, 2019 we consulted the public on potential improvements to our new cars through an online survey and four public information sessions.

Layout Improvements Being Considered

  • Addition of perimeter (sideways) seating for the new SkyTrain cars.
  • Bike racks in flex areas for more convenient and comfortable storage.
  • Leaning rails for customers who prefer to rest without sitting down.
  • Flex areas to better serve customers with mobility devices, strollers, bicycles, and luggage.

To learn about the survey results, please see the SkyTrain Fleet Expansion Engagement Summary Report.

Thank you to everyone who filled out a survey and/or who attended a public information session. Your feedback will help us to deliver the next generation of SkyTrain cars.
