SkyTrain 201-260 are Bombardier ART Mark II units built in 2001 that run on both the Expo Line in 4 car sets and Millennium Line in 2 car sets. They were built by Bombardier in Burnaby, British Columbia at "OMC2", which is the plant across Southridge Drive from the main Operations and Maintenance Centre and delivered as part of fleet expansion for the opening of the Millennium Line.

Features

Interior layout of Mark II 1100/1200 series cars.

These were the first cars in the fleet to be connected with an articulated joint, allowing access for passengers between the 2-car sets. The Mark IIs are also characterized by their fronts, each with a "captain" chair. They are also distinguished (in comparison to the Mark Is) with their wider and longer bodies, as well as wider doors.

When ordered, the seat moquette was a variation of two types of material: a dark blue cushion pad insert with a fabric back support insert, which used the same blue and black pattern and fabric on surburban buses at the time. However, by 2008 and 2009, the back support insert was replaced with the same dark blue cushion pad insert due to sanitary and maintenance reasons.

Starting in 2016, the articulation joints on several sets were replaced due to age. By March 2018, a majority of the fleet's articulation joints were replaced.

During the 2010 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games, security cameras were installed but were removed after the end of the games. However, one set retains its security cameras.

In the past, these cars were never used for any external advertisement campaigns such as ad-wraps. In special circumstances such as the SkyTrain 20th and 25th Anniversary wraps and occasional Christmas wraps, these cars are used. Since 2016, these cars are now used for various external advertisements such as banner ads and ad-wraps.

Formation

On the Millennium Line, these trains run in 2-car sets. However, these cars occasionally show up on the Expo Line running in 4-car sets, or 2 groups of 2-car sets. For weekday AM shuttle service between Commercial–Broadway and Waterfront, these trains run in 2-car sets. It is more common to find these trains on the Millennium Line than the Expo Line.
