Station Details

Located along Rupert Street between East Broadway and Grandview Highway in Vancouver, the station serves the surrounding residential areas and nearby offices.

The station was designed by Baker McGarva Hart Inc. (now VIA Architecture)[1] and is Renfrew's sister station. Both Rupert and Renfrew are the only stations on the SkyTrain network to have offset platforms: they are mirrored versions of each other. Rupert has its entrance facing west while Renfrew has its entrance facing east, with the platform offset being mirrored as well. Rupert makes use of round steel columns with steel plates to support glue laminated wood beams that arch over the platform area.[2] Of the two sister stations, Rupert is the only one to have steel rods above the platforms to support the roof canopies.[3]
