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. 296 park and ride spots are available.[1] All services are operated by TransLink.

Services[edit]

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 buses in the morning and three outbound ones in the afternoon and evening; 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 bus, express bus, and Community Shuttle minibus services.

At the nearby intersection of St. John's Street and Williams Street, 97 B-Line buses provide service to Coquitlam Central and Lougheed Town Centre Stations.

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. The Evergreen Line is expected to begin operation in summer 2016.

Port Moody Central SkyTrain Evergreen Line proposed idea for 2016.
