Nanaimo is a partially elevated station on the Expo Line of Metro Vancouver's SkyTrain rapid transit system. The station is located on Nanaimo Street between Vanness Avenue and East 24th Avenue in Vancouver, British Columbia. The station takes its name from Nanaimo Street, which is named after the city of Nanaimo on Vancouver Island. Situated on a hillcrest, the station provides riders with a view of the west side and Downtown Vancouver.
Nanaimo station was built in 1985 as part of the original SkyTrain system (now known as the Expo Line).
The station is the western most station on the Expo Line that sits atop of the former Central Park Line of the British Columbia Electric Railway. This line formerly ran just west of Nanaimo station to where New Westminster station is located today.
In 2002, Millennium Line service was introduced to the station, which provided outbound service to VCC–Clark (originally Commercial–Broadway) via Columbia station in New Westminster. This service was discontinued and replaced with the Expo Line branch to Production Way–University in 2016.
