Scott Road is an elevated station on the Expo Line of Metro Vancouver's SkyTrain rapid transit system. The station is located near the south end of the Pattullo Bridge in the South Westminster neighbourhood of Surrey, British Columbia. The interchange between King George Boulevard and Scott Road is located to the north of the station.

History[edit]

Scott Road station was built in 1990 as part of the first extension of the original SkyTrain system (now known as the Expo Line). This extension included two stations: Scott Road and Columbia station in neighbouring New Westminster. Scott Road served as the eastern terminus of the Expo Line until an extension to Surrey City Centre was completed in early 1994.

Scott Road station underwent several upgrades beginning in early 2013, improvements included a new elevator and better accessibly, as well as a new bus loop with an upgraded parking lot. These improvements were made in part of the larger Expo Line Upgrade project. Construction was completed in 2014.[3]

Park and Ride facility[edit]

The station itself is located in an industrial district, but it is also an important transfer points for TransLink passengers. Unlike most stations, which rely on passengers arriving by foot or by bus, this station is adjacent to the largest park and ride lot operated by TransLink, with 1471 spaces and a daily charge of CAD $3.00.[1]
