Waterfront is the downtown terminus of the Expo Line and all Millennium Line trains since they are through routed via the Expo Line into downtown. The station took over a former track area of the Canadian Pacific Station, and has a single island platform with a relay area where trains turn around beyond the station (like the other two SkyTrain terminals), the station feels almost like its underground because just beyond it, trains enter the tunnel through downtown Vancouver. The SkyTrain platform is right next to the West Coast Express Platform with a mesh wall separating two of the tracks. The station has two entrances, one at either end of the platform. At the eastbound end (really westbound because trains have looped around through the downtown tunnel to reach the station) an up escalator and staircase lead up to a passageway with entrances to the Sinclair Center and Waterfront Center as well as two escalators up to the non-accessible Howe Street entrance at the Eastern corner of Howe Street and Cordova Street. The main entrance is at the opposite end of the platform where two escalators, a staircase and an elevator lead up to the main entrance area right across from the entrance to the West Coast Express platform with doors on the opposite side that lead to the walkway across the rail yards to reach SeaBus, and also the main entrance doors from transit into the historic CP Waterfront Station (and the Canada Line).
