Canada Line track issues at Bridgeport causing delays

A track issue at the Canada Line's Bridgeport Station in Richmond caused significant transit delays Friday morning.

Trains were only operating between Waterfront Station and Bridgeport, where passengers then had to transfer to a shuttle train to get to the airport or Brighouse. Around 9 a.m., trains were running between Waterfront and Brighouse, but those traveling to the airport still had to transfer at Bridgeport. Shortly before noon, the track issue was resolved and service resumed as normal.

At first, trains running between from Bridgeport to YVR or Brighouse were running on different sides, then only one side of the track, causing confusion for some riders.

 

 

Once on the train, riders experienced significant delays at each station as well.

 

 

The track issues began before 7 a.m. While TransLink shared on social media soon after that the matter had been resolved, the same track issue appeared to return minutes later. 

 

 

 

 

While delayed, transit riders took to social media to express their frustration.
