22nd Street Station is located on an elevated portion of the SkyTrain rapid transit system serving Metro Vancouver, British Columbia. The station opened in 1985 as part of the original Expo Line, and is currently serving both Expo Line and Millennium Line trains.

Location[edit]

The station is located on 7th Ave between 21 St and 22 St in the western end of New Westminster, a area of low-density residential neighbourhoods. The main functionality of this station, however, is to connect passengers to regional bus routes as it is located close to a major crossroads of the region, where the Queensborough Bridge meets Marine Way and Stewardson Way.

As the station is located on a hill above the Queensborough interchange, it has expansive view of Fraser River and Mount Baker on a clear day.[2]

SkyTrain's operation and maintenance centre is located northwest of this station.

Service[edit]

  • 22nd Street bus loop is the terminus for a number of various regional bus routes serving Vancouver, Surrey, North Delta, Richmond and Langley.
  • Local connections to Queensborough Landing and Uptown New Westminster is also available at this station.
  • The station serves as the starting point of early morning Millennium trains toward VCC-Clark Station.
