The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch.

Vancouver SkyTrain

SkyTrain is an urban rapid transit system in Metro Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. It uses fully automated trains running mostly on elevated tracks. SkyTrain's 68.7 km (42.7 mi) of track make it the longest automated rapid transit system in the world. It also uses the longest mass transit-only bridge, the Skybridge, to cross the Fraser River. The system has a total of 47 stations on three lines. The Expo Line was built in time for the Expo 86 World's Fair, the Millennium Line opened in 2002, and the Canada Line opened in 2009 in advance of the 2010 Winter Olympics. The SkyTrain network carries an average of 240,000 passengers per weekday on the interlined Expo and Millennium lines, and 105,000 passengers per weekday on the Canada Line. The system saw record ridership during the 2010 Winter Olympics as it moved an average of 622,000 passengers per day during the 17-day event.
This train was built by the Korean company Hyundai Rotem in 2009. 40 cars were built.
