Sapperton is a SkyTrain station in Metro Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Station Details

Sapperton Station opened as part of the initial stage of the Millennium Line when it ran from Waterfront to Braid. The section from Braid to Commercial Drive, or what is now Commercial–Broadway, opened a few months later. The station provides easy access to nearby residential areas and Royal Columbian Hospital. The TransLink, Coast Mountain Bus Company, and Transit Police headquarters are located nearby.

The station became part of the Expo Line on October 22, 2016 after the SkyTrain network was redesigned in lieu of the Millennium Line Evergreen Extension.

Sapperton is the only elevated station in the system where passengers have to go up from the platforms to reach the concourse and exit/entrance, a concept found more commonly in underground stations. The station entrance is located on Keary Street on the west side of Brunette Avenue. An overpass stretches over the Burlington North Santa Fe (BNSF) right-of-way and Brunette Avenue.

This is also the only SkyTrain station with no direct bus connections.

Sapperton has a unique roof support design at the platform level, featuring complex metalwork to support the gull-wing roofs over the two platforms. In between the two platforms, there is a large wheel as part of a public art fixture that has been part of the station since it opened. The wheel was powered by a stationary bike on the concourse, which has since been removed. The station was designed by Hancock Bruckner Eng & Wright Architects and the architecture of steel and glass reflects the industrial area around the station.[1][2][3]
