Following the federal and provincial government’s official announcement of full funding for the Broadway Subway, the City of Vancouver extends its thanks to residents, businesses, and government partners for their continued support of the project.
The extension of rapid transit along the Broadway Corridor is the top priority of the City of Vancouver’s Transportation 2040 plan, and is the single most significant investment that could be made to support economic growth in the City and throughout the region.

Construction begins in 2020
Construction for the Broadway Subway will begin in 2020 and is expected to be complete by 2025. Once complete, the Broadway Subway will bring fast, frequent and reliable SkyTrain service to one of the busiest destinations in the region.
On opening day, the Broadway Subway will be able to carry more than three times the current capacity of the 99 B-Line bus service. Travel time between VCC-Clark and Arbutus will take 10 minutes, and a passenger embarking at Lafarge Lake-Douglas Station will arrive at Arbutus in 46 minutes — one train, no transfers, no traffic congestion.
