Lincoln is an elevated station on the Millennium Line of Metro Vancouver's SkyTrain rapid transit system in Coquitlam, British Columbia. It is located on Pinetree Way, situated between Lincoln and Northern Avenues. Coquitlam Centre and Henderson Place Mall shopping centres are located within walking distance from the station.

History[edit]

Lincoln station was built in 2016, and opened along with five other stations when the Millennium Line's Evergreen Extension was completed.[2][3][4] The initial plan for the extension did not include Lincoln station as it was determined that Coquitlam Central station would be sufficiently close to the nearby shopping centres and various amenities; however, the owners of the Coquitlam Centre mall and the developers of other nearby residential projects paid for its construction.[5]
