Canada Line service was shut down between Marine Drive and Bridgeport Station Friday evening, affecting hundreds of commuters.
TransLink reported a service outage at about 6:30 p.m. on Friday. Trains coming from Vancouver International Airport and Richmond-Brighouse were terminating at Bridgeport Station and trains heading south from Waterfront were terminating at Marine Drive Station.
A shuttle bus was operating between the two stations.
There were hundreds of people lined up at Bridgeport Station waiting for transportation by around 8:30 p.m., according to travellers trying to move between Vancouver and Richmond.
The service interruption comes after a day of stranded commuters, stuck buses and delayed trips, all due to Friday’s snowfall across the region.
Canada Line service was interrupted during the morning commute at around 9 a.m. and again around 5:30 p.m. It was temporarily restored around 5:45 p.m. before being shut down again at 6:30 p.m. TransLink announced trains had resumed running between Marine Drive and Bridgeport Station shortly after 9 p.m.
By 9 p.m., TransLink reported delays for most Metro Vancouver service were lasting between one and two hours. A jack-knifed semi also caused delays of over two hours on the 22 bus route.
