SkyTrain Canada Line cars 101/201-120/220 are Hyundai Rotem EMU units built in 2008 that run exclusively on the Canada Line in 2 car sets.


Hyundai Rotem supplied 40 electric multiple units (EMUs) to ProTrans BC for operation on the SkyTrain's Canada Line in Vancouver, British Columbia. SNC Lavalin, parent company of ProTrans BC, awarded Hyundai Rotem the contract on November 25, 2005.[1] The cars were built in South Korea and shipped to Canada; the first of which arrived in March 2008.

Like the rest of the SkyTrain system, train operation is fully automated and managed by Thales SelTrac Communications-Based Train Control. Unlike the rest of the system, the Rotem EMUs use conventional AC traction motors instead of linear induction motors. The Rotem cars are also larger than the existing cars from Bombardier. Two cars, constructed from stainless steel, make up one trainset. The white, blue and green livery was chosen to reflect the mountains, forests and trees of the Lower Mainland.[2]

These were the first trains in the fleet to feature a bike parking spot in each car and an expanded wheelchair space. Overall, there is more leg room between seats and slightly wider aisles to accommodate luggage. These were also the first trains in the fleet to use electronic passenger information displays, displaying next stations and the terminus station.


Trains run in pairs of 2 cars. The number scheme for each train is as follows: the first digit denotes the car number, while the second and third digits represent the set number. For example, 120 would mean car 1 of set 20, which would be paired with car 220, which would be car 2 of set 20.
