Good news for rush hour commuters – TransLink says a disruption on the Canada Line has been resolved.
Earlier this afternoon, TransLink was forced to close Marine Drive station after a “fire incident,” which cut all service for Southbound Trains.
Spokesperson Anne Drennan says the transit authority had to evacuate passengers from a problem train at the station.
“It’s on tracks, we are pulling another train in beside problem train and evacuating passengers from one train to other.”
We are responding to Marine Drive Canada Line station for a fire incident – Expect delays on Canada Line. More info to follow.
