Evergreen Line Will Proceed

Evergreen Line Will Proceed

Metro Vancouver mayors have voted in favour of a transit plan that includes expanded services and the Evergreen Line.

“A positive vote means the Evergreen Line will proceed.” – Minister Lekstrom

The provincial government is committing $583 million to funding the Evergreen Line. Translink will provide $400 million and the federal government will contribute $417 million.  The Evergreen Line will relieve congestion, improve air quality and link Port Moody and Coquitlam to the SkyTrain system.  Over 8,000 direct and indirect jobs will be created during construction.

Evergreen Line Rapid Transit Project

The Evergreen Line is a new rapid transit line that will connect Coquitlam to Vancouver via Port Moody and Burnaby. The Evergreen Line will be a fast, frequent and convenient SkyTrain service, connecting Coquitlam City Centre through Port Moody to Lougheed Town Centre in approximately 15 minutes. It will connect without transfer to the current SkyTrain network at Lougheed Town Centre Station and will integrate with regional bus and West Coast Express networks.
