TransLink unveiled some significant changes with the way trains travel over the Expo and Millennium Lines. On Saturday, October 22nd, 2016, all Millennium Line trains will run between VCC-Clark and Lougheed Town Centre stations while Expo Line trains run Waterfront to King George and Waterfront to Production Way-University.
These changes relate to the upcoming introduction of the Evergreen Line linking Port Moody and Coquitlam up with the rest of the SkyTrain system, which is expected to open before year’s end. The Evergreen Line no longer becomes its own separate line, but extending the Millennium Line into the afore-mentioned communities.
This means that the Millennium Line no longer runs to or from Waterfront station in downtown Vancouver and that Columbia is not the last point of transfer between the two lines; these are now Production Way-University and Lougheed Town Centre.
So, to remember:
- Waterfront (Vancouver) to King George (Surrey)
- Waterfront (Vancouver) to Production Way-University (Burnaby)
- VCC-Clark (Vancouver) to Lougheed Town Centre (Burnaby)

These changes do not affect service on the Canada Line.
