The Evergreen Project

The Evergreen Project is an 11-kilometre extension to the existing SkyTrain system in Metro Vancouver. It will be a fast, frequent and convenient SkyTrain service, connecting Coquitlam City Centre through Port Moody to Lougheed Town Centre in approximately 15 minutes. When the line opens, Metro Vancouver’s SkyTrain system will become the longest fully automated rapid transit system in the world.

Evergreen will link Burnaby, Port Moody and Coquitlam to Vancouver and will be fully integrated into the existing SkyTrain system at Lougheed Town Centre Station. It will carry 70,000 passengers and remove 40,000 cars from the road every day by 2021.

Funding for the Evergreen Line is a partnership between the Government of Canada, the Government of B.C. and TransLink, costing $1.43 billion. The Government of Canada is contributing up to $424 million ($350 million from the Building Canada Fund, $67 million from the Public Transit Capital Trust Fund, and $7 million from the P3 Canada Fund), the Government of B.C. is contributing $586 million, and other partners are contributing $21 million. TransLink is contributing the remaining $400 million and will operate the system when it opens.
