SkyTrain delays, downed trolley wires and more transit issues Friday morning

This week's snowy conditions continue to have an impact on TransLink service across Metro Vancouver, as Friday morning's commute is already hampered by SkyTrain delays and bus issues.

TransLink's current advisory warns that "Expo Line & Millennium Line service is operating slower than normal due to inclement weather today. Please anticipate extra travel time and check transit alerts."

The Millennium Line is continuing to operate with "coupled" four-car trains and decreased frequency, according to TransLink.

The Canada Line, however, is operating as usual Friday morning.

There have been some brief departure delays as well on the West Coast Express, while the SeaBus remains unaffected.

For bus riders, downed trolley wires and mechanical issues are causing detours and delays on some routes. 

HandyDart will operate Friday for essential services only. 

All TransLink users are urged to check the Alerts page before departing, and to factor in potential delays into their travel times today.
