Evergreen extension officially open to the public

The Evergreen extension, which will bring efficient rapid transit service between Coquitlam, Port Moody, Burnaby and Vancouver, was officially opened Friday, December 2nd, 2017.

 

Construction of the Evergreen extension, its stations and public plazas created an estimated 8,000 direct and indirect jobs during construction. The project is now complete and trains are ready to start taking passengers at noon today. The opening celebration at Coquitlam Central Station was launched with an inaugural ride by the representatives of the project’s partners along the Evergreen extension.
