Metrotown
Home<Canada<Vancouver SkyTrain<Canada Line<Metrotown

Metrotown is an elevated SkyTrain Station with a single island platform. The main form of access is a staircase down to a mezzanine area that leads to another staircase directly down to Central Blvd along with a footbridge across to the Metropolis at Metrotown. The elevator leads down to its own separate entry area at street level along Central Blvd that is extremely poorly designed because it is at the opposite end of the platform quite far away from staircase access. This means that many passengers take the elevator because there is no nearby staircases.
