This Metro Vancouver SkyTrain station is closing for 6 weeks. Here's what to know

The station must undergo essential maintenance work.
Metro Vancouver commuters must make alternate plans if they regularly use the King George SkyTrain.

Metro Vancouverites should brace for a significant SkyTrain closure starting this weekend. 

TransLink's six-week-long closure of the King George SkyTrain station in Surrey commences on Saturday, April 27. 

King George is the terminus station for the Expo Line but must be closed for "essential maintenance work" through May and into the first half of June. The Expo Line will temporarily end at Surrey Central Station.

Transit users with trips that typically end or begin at King George must take a bus or get off or on at Surrey Central. They should add 15 minutes of travel time if they typically ride the Expo Line between the two stations.

At Surrey Central Station, trains to Waterfront will depart from either platform and commuters should "check the platform screens to know where the next train will arrive," according to TransLink.

Bus schedule during King George Station closure

Buses will continue serving King George Station during the closure, with some changes:

  • Additional buses will run every 15 minutes between King George and Surrey Central stations from 6 a.m. and 9 a.m. on weekdays.
  • Bus routes that normally end at King George Station will stop at the station and then extend northbound to terminate at Surrey Central Station.
  • Buses that include a stop at King George Station will maintain their regular stops and routes.
  • There will be no HandyDART stop at King George Station while the station remains closed. Regular HandyDART services will be available at Surrey Central Station and other stops.

TransLink will have staff present to assist travellers and directional signage, including bus bay changes, to steer them in the right direction.
