Station Details

Located at King George Boulevard north of Fraser Highway, King George is one of the eastern terminus stations of the Expo Line (the other being Production Way–University). The station provides access to the adjacent Holland Park and nearby residential areas. Surrey Memorial Hospital is also located nearby. In recent years, there's been an increase in mixed-use developments around the station.

The King George Development Corporation, which owned and deveoped the eight-hectare site around the station, contributed $6 million to the construction of the station.[1]

Bike Parkade

King George's Bike Parkade was the second Bike Parkade to open in the system. The facility opened on July 6, 2015[2] and was designed by the Carscadden Stokes McDonald Architects Inc. firm based in Vancouver.[3]

The Bike Parkade is constructed with high strength glass and perforated metal panels to conform with CPTED (Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design) standards. The roof of the structure uses Crosslaminated Timber made from locally sourced materials.
