Lougheed Town Centre is a SkyTrain station in Metro Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Station Details

Often referred simply as Lougheed, Lougheed Town Centre is located at Lougheed Highway & Austin Road. The station is elevated above Austin Road and provides service to the Expo and Millennium lines. Lougheed Town Centre derives its name from the nearby Lougheed Town Centre (or "Lougheed Mall") shopping centre as well as from the area the station is located in. The station provides access to the mall, nearby high-density residential areas, and to the nearby Korean shops and restaurants on North Road and Coquitlam. This is the only SkyTrain station that connects with a BC Transit service as Lougheed Town Centre serves as the western terminus of the 66 Fraser Valley Express.

The station opened with its present-day three platforms, although the third platform – now the Millennium Line (VCC–Clark-bound) platform – remained empty and unused until construction of the Evergreen Extension began in 2013.

Lougheed Town Centre was designed by the Paul Merrick Architects firm. The five support columns, representing the surrounding old-growth forest, support the suspended roof canopy that covers the station. Prefabricated long trusses fabricated by AMEC Dynamic Structure Ltd. of Port Coquitlam, were shipped to the station site and lifted into place.[1][2]

Platform 3 and the expanded portions of Lougheed Town Centre that opened in 2016 were designed by DIALOG.[3]

Public Art

In the east concourse by the bus loop entrance, there are eight images of forests and greenery as part of the old-growth forest theme at Lougheed Town Centre Station, in addition to imprints of fern and leaves in the tiling work on the platforms. Prior to the completion of the Canada Line in 2009, Lougheed Town Centre was the only station in the system to use photography as part of public art on SkyTrain.[4]


Prior to the completion of SkyTrain, the bus loop was located at North Road and Austin Road. Opened in August 1973 as Lougheed Mall, the bus loop was part of the introduction of the FastBUS program and the introduction of local Coquitlam service. The bus loop moved slightly south, closer to the North Road & Austin Road intersection in 1986 due to the construction of an expanded parking lot to facilitate a mall expansion.

The station was originally envisioned to be located at North Road and Austin Road, integrated with the mall by a series of pedestrian paths when light rail was the desired mode for the Millennium Line. This location would also be a foundation for extending services into the Tri-Cities. However, to save costs, the station site was relocated to its present-day location. Dissatisfied, the owners of Lougheed Town Centre mall sought to deny government access to the new station site, claiming that the location of the new station and bus exchange would have an impact on their tenant, Sears, whose location was adjacent to the proposed station. The province later expropriated the land for construction, resulting in the present-day lack of integration between the area and Lougheed Town Centre Station.

After the completion of the Millennium Line, the loop moved to its current location, directly east of the SkyTrain station and renamed Lougheed Station. For a few months during the construction of the Evergreen Extension, the bus loop was moved slightly north from its current location, resulting in most bus bays being on-street boarding on Gatineau Place.

The opening ceremony for the Millennium Line took place at Lougheed Town Centre Station on August 31, 2002, at the bus loop entrance concourse. Ceremonial ribbons with the names of each station on the Millennium Line were cut on the stairs leading up to the platform.[5]

Work to expand the station for the Evergreen Extension began in 2013 and involved the expansion of the bus loop entrance concourse, expansion of the Austin Road concourse and opening of the existing and unused third platform. Work finished in 2016.

From when it opened in 2002 to October 21, 2016, Lougheed Town Centre was a station for the Millennium Line only. On October 22, 2016, the Expo Line was extended to Production Way–University, adding Lougheed Town Centre as one of the stations. Lougheed Town Centre from October 22 to December 2, 2016, served as the eastern terminus of the Millennium Line until the Evergreen Extension was completed.

Following the October 2016 changes, outbound Millennium Line trains crossed over the inbound tracks and into Platform 3, where trains continued to travel on the left until Burquitlam, where it switched back to the right. Likewise, inbound trains switched to the left after Burquitlam. This was to accommodate platform arrangements at Lougheed Town Centre. However, due to reliability issues with the switches south of Burquitlam and switches west of Lougheed Town Centre, the switching and crossover were removed on June 25, 2018. From October 21, 2016, to June 24, 2018, Expo Line trains to Waterfront stopped at Platform 1; Expo Line trains to Production Way–University and Millennium Line trains to VCC–Clark stopped at Platform 2; and Millennium Line trains to Lafarge Lake–Douglas stopped at Platform 3.

Lougheed Town Centre was the longest station by length on the entire system, measuring at approximately 180 metres until it was surpassed by Metrotown, which measures at approximately 208 metres.

The station was one of the first two in the system (the other being Edmonds) to have its customer information displays upgraded. Work started in late 2018.

In May 2019, BC Transit proposed extending its 66 Fraser Valley Express service from its current western terminus at Carvolth Exchange to Lougheed Station by January 2021.[6] However, in April 2020, due to financial and ridership reasons associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, the extension was deferred to January 2022.[7] An online public consultation took place between June 28–July 18, 2021, with results due in August and schedules publicized in December.[8] In November 2021, the extension was delayed again due to a bus driver shortage in the Fraser Valley and the launch date was pushed to March 2022 to provide BC Transit more time to resolve the driver shortage.[9] The service launched on March 27, 2022.

Bus Routes

The bus loop is located directly east of the station along Gatineau Place, elevated above Lougheed Highway on a hill.
