Moody Centre Station is located in Port Moody and is one of two stations in the city of Port Moody.
Upon entry into the station, passengers are greeted by a massive canoe that hangs over the escalators and faregate line. The canoe was originally crafted by Indigenous students at Centennial Secondary School and was restored by students at Suwa’lkh Secondary School. The upper concourse features images of the first CP Rail train arriving into the original Port Moody station. Compared to other stations on the Evergreen Extension, Moody Centre features the most extensive use of wood as part of the ceiling.
The station was designed by Francl Architecture.
There are three permanent public art pieces at Moody Centre. The first is the aforementioned canoe that hangs above the station concourse that was made by Centennial Secondary School students in 1997–1998 and restored in 2015 by students at Suwa’lkh Secondary School.
The second piece is located outside the station in front of the entrance titled Coming and Going by Soren Henrich. The six-metre-diamater circle decal artwork depicts the life and various stages of a salmon.
The third piece is a historical photograph obtained from the Vancouver Archives. The photograph, located on the upper concourse, is of the original Port Moody Station in 1886. The caption below it reads:
"A large crowd gather around Engine 371 to celebrate the first scheduled passenger train to the Pacific, arriving in Port Moody from Montreal on July 4, 1886. Mrs. Hirschberg poses with a bouquet of flowers, recognizing her as the first female passenger."
The original Port Moody Station, the western terminus of CP Rail before it was extended to Vancouver, was built near the present day Reed Point Marina on Barnet Highway in 1882. The station was rebuilt in 1907 away from the water and was moved in 1945 to the foot of Queens Street. The station closed in 1976. The station building however, was removed and preserved as part of the Port Moody Station Museum at Murray Street and Moody Street.
In 1995, a new station on the site opened as part of the West Coast Express. Port Moody was one of the stops on the commuter rail service and was a transit hub for connecting passengers to local bus services and has a Park and Ride site.
The Port Moody West Coast Express station building and parts of the Park and Ride and bus loop were demolished shortly after construction of the Evergreen Extension began to make way for the SkyTrain right-of-way and for the construction of Moody Centre Station in 2012. Port Moody was renamed to Moody Centre on the West Coast Express after the opening of the Evergreen Extension.
Prior to completion of the Evergreen Extension, parts of Moody Centre was open during construction to allow access to the West Coast Express platform.
The bus loop is located directly south of the station.
