TransLink Canada opened its first SkyTrain line in 1985. SkyTrain is the oldest and one of the longest automated driverless light rapid rail transit systems in the world.
SkyTrain currently has 53 stations serving three lines: Expo, Millennium, and Canada Line’s. The Expo and Millennium SkyTrain Lines connect downtown Vancouver with the cities of Burnaby, New Westminster and Surrey. The Canada Line connects downtown Vancouver to the Vancouver International Airport (YVR) and the city of Richmond.
Opened in December 2016, the Evergreen Line expansion to the Millennium Line is an 11-kilometre extension to the SkyTrain providing more direct connections for residents. Delkor Rail supplied 50,000 Alt 1 Baseplates, which is a proven reliable and highly robust elastic bonded rail fastener.
