Coquitlam Centre's location was chosen because it is at the intersection of Lougheed Highway and Barnet Highway, two major regional thoroughfares which provide access to Highway 1. The mall is located across from Coquitlam Central Station, a major transportation hub for the area with a public bus interchange, West Coast Express commuter rail station, and a SkyTrain station on the Evergreen Extension.
On July 19, 2012, the Federal Government, the City of Coquitlam, and Coquitlam Centre finalized a deal that added Lincoln station to the route of the Evergreen Extension, giving the mall its own SkyTrain station.
Film and television
The interior of the mall has been featured in several film and television productions, including the Academy Award-winning movie Juno, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and Grumpy Cat's Worst Christmas Ever.
