Port Coquitlam railway station is a stop 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 Coquitlam, just off Kingsway Avenue. The station opened in 1995, when the West Coast Express began operating. 280 park and ride spaces are available. All services are operated by TransLink.

Services[edit]

Port Coquitlam 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 local and express bus and Community Shuttle minibus services.
