Service on TransLink’s Expo Line has resumed after 12 trains completely came to a halt along various locations.
TransLink Spokesperson Anne Drennan says numerous trains had to be manually moved.
“There were a dozen trains that were on the tracks with passengers when the system shut down, when the Expo Line shut down. We had crew members go out as quickly as possible and bring those trains manually back to the stations”.
The delay began around 6pm affecting the entire Expo Line.
About an hour later service was restored between Edmonds station and King George station.
Bus Bridges were put in place between Waterfront and Edmonds Station.
Drennan says the problem seemed to be mechanical but TransLink is not sure.
