A technical issue with the Millennium Line which threw the SkyTrain out of service and forced the transit authority to replace a portion of the route with a bus bridge has been resolved.
At about 2 p.m., TransLink tweeted out that "technical issues" had knocked out service along Millennium Line service between VCC-Clark and Burquitlam Station and that bus bridge would replace the route.
#SkyTrain SkyTrain service between VCC & Burquitlam Station and Lougheed & Braid Station suspended due to technical issue. Trains operating between Lafarge & Burquitlam and Waterfront and Braid Stations. Updates to follow ^nv— TransLink BC (@TransLink) May 26, 2020
About an hour later, the transit authority said it had resolved the problem but that potential "residual delays" could still hold up commuters as trains went through the system
#SkyTrain Millennium Line technical issue has been resolved. Regular service is resuming. Potential residual delays while trains are being sent through the system. We thank you for your patience this afternoon. ^nv— TransLink BC (@TransLink) May 26, 2020
Further disruptions were also reported on the Expo Line, and another bus bridge continues to replace service between Braid and Lougheed Station. The Canada Line remains unaffected.
