Port Moody Station is a station on the West Coast Express commuter rail line connecting Vancouver to Mission, British Columbia, Canada. The station is located on the south side of the Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) tracks in Port Moody, at the north foot of William Street, approximately 200 metres (660 ft) north of St. John's Street. The station opened in 1995, when the West Coast Express began operating. 300 park and ride spots are available. All services are operated by TransLink.
Port Moody Station is served by five West Coast Express trains per day in each direction: five in the morning to Vancouver, and five in the evening to Mission. In addition, there are two buses (called the "TrainBus") operating from Mission to Vancouver in the morning (after all trains) and three in the evening returning to Mission in the evening (again, after all trains), stopping at all West Coast Express stations. On the weekend with no rail service there are three inbound a.m. buses and three outbound p.m. ones; with two each way on Sundays. The station is adjacent to a bus loop and park-and-ride facility, which are served by the and local and express bus and Community Shuttle minibus services.
The planned Evergreen Line will extend the SkyTrain network northeast from Lougheed Town Centre Station, integrating with Port Moody Station with a transfer to Moody Centre Station on its way to Coquitlam. Construction is expected to begin near autumn 2012, with Evergreen Line operation in summer 2016.
The original railway station—or an early station, if not the original one—now functions as the Port Moody Station Museum, and is located a few hundred metres west of the West Coast Express station, on Murray Street near the north foot of Moody Street.
