VCC–Clark is a SkyTrain station in Metro Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Station Details

Located at Keith Drive and Great Northern Way, VCC–Clark derives its name from the nearby Vancouver Community College and Clark Drive. Originally planned to be an underground station, the station was to serve the emerging tech area of False Creek Flats but opening day was delayed due to construction and land disputes. The station was completed in 2005 with testing and commissioning delaying opening until the new year in 2006. Initially, VCC–Clark was to be a stepping stone for an extension along Broadway, but the plans were eventually cancelled as the extension was considered a low priority at the time.

Currently, there are plans to extend the Millennium Line from VCC–Clark to Arbutus along Broadway.

Extra Millennium Line trains are often parked west of VCC–Clark during off-peak hours and enter service during peak hour. SkyTrain staff training also occurs during off-peak hours at Platform 1, resulting in a closure of half of the station and trains terminating at Platform 2 instead.

As part of a partnership between TransLink and BC SPCA, an automatic bird feeder was installed on February 7, 2019 as part of a pilot project underneath Platform 1 that dispenses contraceptives to humanely reduce the pigeon population.

The station was designed as part of a joint consortium between Walter Francl Architects and Stantec Architecture.[1][2] The station design was developed through a series of workshops and community meetings.

Bus Routes

Bus services load at the adjacent bus loop. The 84 UBC was introduced to coincide with the station opening to serve as a relief for the 99 Commercial–Broadway Station/UBC B-Line and replaced the 99 B-Line UBC Non-Stop, a non-stop version of the 99.
