TransLink SkyTrain Canada Line Operations and Maintenance Centre
|Address||9851 Van Horne Way,|
|Opened||August 17, 2009|
The SkyTrain Canada Line Operations and Maintenance Centre is located at 9851 Van Horne Way, Richmond, British Columbia, directly under the Oak Street Bridge. The facility opened in 2009 with the launch of the Canada Line. This facility is responsible for the parking and maintenance of the Canada Line fleet. All major and minor vehicle maintenance is done at this facility. The central control for the Canada is based at this facility.
Unlike other yards in the SkyTrain network, the Canada Line yard does not have a code, such as OMC1 for the main SkyTrain Operations and Maintenance Centre in Burnaby. This may be because this yard and the Canada Line in general, is separate from the SkyTrain network and system.
All operations, maintenance works, and administration based at the Canada Line yard are completely separate from the rest of the SkyTrain network.
Despite there being railroad tracks running around the yard and at times, paralleling the parking tracks, the yard and the Canada Line is not connected to any external railroad tracks.
