After roughly four chaotic and stressful hours, SkyTrain service has resumed in the downtown core.
A medical emergency at Burrard Station backlogged trains for hours, sending commuters into an angry frenzy as lines spilled outside the stations.

With rush hour in full swing, that meant major delays and lineups at many stations.

Riders took to social media to express frustration… or find humour in the waits.

I don’t always go to East Van from Kits but when I do….the skytrain is down.

On a Skytrain, I have a cough. This guy moves away from me, but not before giving me a look that tells me I’m very much inconveniencing him

over 90 min. on Skytrain this afternoon, instead of 30. Sigh. Beautiful view of Mt. Baker with sunshine while we sat waiting…
