Surrey Central SkyTrain Station is the seventh along the Expo Line to see upgrades completed.

Construction began in March 2017.

According to TransLink, in coming weeks riders will enjoy a “more seamless” commute thank to a new north stationhouse that can handle twice the present capacity.

“Last years there were more than four million transit journeys travelling through Surrey Central Station, making it one of the most important transit hubs south of the Fraser,” TransLink CEO Kevin Desmond said. “With ridership continuing to grow in the region, these investments will ensure that we can meet demand today and into the future.”
