Sea Island Centre is an at-grade station on the Canada Line of Metro Vancouver's SkyTrain rapid transit system. The station is located on Sea Island in Richmond, British Columbia.

The Vancouver International Airport Authority contributed up to $300 million toward the airport branch of the Canada Line, which includes Sea Island Centre.[2] This station, along with Templeton, was built at-grade to allow for the future construction of an elevated aircraft taxiway over the Canada Line guideway.[3]

Services[edit]

Sea Island Centre station serves Vancouver International Airport (YVR), and airline-related industrial area along Grant McConachie Way, east of the airport. During off hours, the station is served by the N10 bus route, which provides service to Downtown Vancouver and Richmond–Brighouse station.
