TransLink has announced that a medical emergency has disrupted SkyTrain service at a Metro Vancouver Skytrain station.

The transit authority reports that service to Lougheed Station has been disrupted. As such, Expo Line trains are turning back at Sapperton Station; a bus bridge will transport customers to Braid and Lake City Way Stations.

For Millennium passengers, trains are turning back at Lake City Way and Burquitlam Stations; a bus bridge will also transport customers between those two stations.

Canada Line is unaffected, and is running normally. Additional security and Transit Police are at the stations to ensure passenger safety and crowd control.
