Richmond–Brighouse station is an elevated station on the Canada Line of Metro Vancouver's SkyTrain rapid transit system. Located in Richmond, British Columbia, Canada, it is one of the outbound terminus stations of the Canada Line, the other being YVR–Airport. Like YVR–Airport, Richmond–Brighouse only has a single track.

Location[edit]

The station is located within Richmond's commercial heart, close to the Richmond Centre shopping mall and Richmond City Hall. The station is within a short walking distance of such amenities as Richmond Public Market, Richmond Hospital, and the Minoru civic complex, as well as other nearby office, commercial, and residential buildings.

Services[edit]

An on-street turn-around serves as the terminus for many bus routes that serve the area, and enables a convenient transfer to the Canada Line. This loop replaced the one previously at Richmond Centre. A bus loop is currently under construction and is expected to be completed in early 2019.[2]

Station name[edit]

Richmond City Council proposed that the name Brighouse be used as the name of the station, since Brighouse is a historic name for the surrounding neighbourhood, thus reflecting the area's heritage. The area was named Brighouse after an early settler, Samuel Brighouse, who was one of "The Three Greenhorns" of Vancouver. From 1920 until 1941, the area was the location of a horse-racing track known as Brighouse Racetrack.[4]
