 METRO VANCOUVER – A man walking on the SkyTrain tracks between the New Westminster and 22nd Street stations is causing major delays in service.

 Police are now waiting for the man at 22nd Street station.

 TransLink is setting up a bus bridge to move passengers.

    I spent 20 minutes waiting at Main Street station the other day thanks to “someone walking in the tunnel between Burrard and Waterfront”.

    I’m really glad I was out in the fresh air rather than trapped underground.

  2. Other David Says:

    In five years of daily commuting, I’ve endured a number of similar situations. the longest being 1 hour on the swoop under the viaducts. At least it was the short turn and I had a seat… When it comes to reliability, Skytrain is like the old nursery rhyme. when it’s good it’s very very good, but when it is bad it is horrid.
