Home<Canada<Vancouver<West Coast Express Commuter Rail
West Coast Express is a 40-mile, 8 station Commuter Rail Line that runs just 5 peak direction rush hour trips each weekday out to Mission from downtown Vancouver along the tracks of Canadian Pacific that is also the contract operator. All trips use F59PHI Locomotives in a push-pull configuration with trains being pushed to Vancouver in the mornings and pulled in the evenings. All trains consist of between five and ten Bombardier BiLevel Rail Cars. These rail cars are maintained by VIA at its maintenance facility at Pacific Central Station. West Coast Express also runs (as of December 2011) two AM Peak westbound and five PM peak eastbound TrainBus Trips that provide some additional service for passengers. The system is fully ADA complaint using mini-high level platforms and then bridge plates to one car in the middle of the train. A different car also also has a Cappuccino Bar on the lower level, this consists of a counter in place of a restroom. Every station but Mission was photographed because Translink Services stretch only as far out as Port Moody and their no possible transit ways for a same-day return from Mission.
