**UPDATE December 11, 4:37 PM: Columbia station has reopened and regular SkyTrain service has been restored. However, TransLink advises that riders may encounter delays as service resumes due to crowding. They will also continue operating the bus bridges to provide customers with alternate options until crowding is resolved.

TransLink has announced that there is currently no SkyTrain service through Columbia Station on the Expo Line due to flooding.

The transportation authority has organized a bus bridge between New Westminster Station and Braid Station in the meanwhile. In addition, a second bus bridge has been set up from New Westminster Station and Scott Road.

With that in mind, the Millennium Line and Canada Line service are not affected by the announcement. TransLink crews are currently working to restore full service.

Riders seeking alternative routes to SkyTrain are encouraged to consult our Trip Planner (http://tripplanning.translink.ca) online, and select “Don’t Use SkyTrain” under advanced search settings, or contact our customer information desk (604-953-3333) for trip planning advice.
