Transit in Vancouver: Questions and Answers

The loading gauge is too wide for an Innovia, I'm sure there's loads of options though. I bet Bombardier could whip up an automatic version of the Toronto Rocket if Hyundai doesn't want to build more trains.

If Hyundai Rotem for whatever reason refuses to make more trains or TransLink feels like Hyundai Rotem doesn't offer what they want anymore, I guess Bombardier maybe could somehow make a bespoke version of the Mark III so it fits on the Canada Line tracks.

There's no reason for them to rework the Innovia when they have the Movia for traditional loading gauges like the Canada Line uses.

Thanks. Never heard of the Movia before, but that's a solution for TransLink.
