Transit troubles continue Tuesday as snow continues to fall across Metro Vancouver

TransLink is cautioning Metro Vancouver commuters that delays will be part of the day’s travels for customers, as snow continues to choke the region.

The Expo and Millennium SkyTrain lines are hardest hit, as fewer trains are able to run. Each train needs to be staffed in order to navigate possible track issues caused by the weather, says TransLink.

TransLink is cautioning Metro Vancouver commuters that delays will be part of the day’s travels for customers, as snow continues to choke the region.

While an issue caused problems on the Richmond side of the Canada Line Monday night, that closure has been resolved, and so far today the line is fully operational.

There are numerous bus detours Tuesday due to road conditions, and the transit agency is making coach substitutions to better handle the drives. TransLink has route-specific changes and alerts posted centrally on their website’s alerts page.

“We continue to salt and sand bus loops and SkyTrain stations, but please use caution in these areas and remember to dress warmly in anticipation of potential delays,” notes TransLink.

The Vancouver School Distirict and all post-secondary schools in the city have also cancelled classes today due to weather.
