Marine Drive Station is a SkyTrain station on the Canada Line in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Location[edit]

The station is located on the southeast corner of the intersection of Southwest Marine Drive and Cambie Street. It serves the residential areas of Marpole and the Vancouver South Slope. There are also some shops located across the street from the station.

Marine Drive Station is the only Canada Line station in Vancouver with above-ground station platforms. Around 64th Avenue, just a few blocks north of the station, the line transitions to a cut-and-cover tunnel and remains underground all the way to the northern terminus at Waterfront Station. South of Marine Drive Station, the line crosses the Fraser River on the North Arm Bridge, a purpose-built bridge similar to the Skybridge for the Expo Line.

Services[edit]

The trolleybuses running along Main Street (#3), Granville Street (#10) and Oak Street (#17) — as well as the former trolleybus route on Cambie Street (#15) — have their southern termini located at a newly constructed bus exchange at Marine Drive Station, enabling easy transfers for passengers traveling between Vancouver, Richmond, and the Vancouver International Airport. In addition, passengers will also be able to connect to the #100 bus, which runs along Marine Drive.
