Coquitlam Central is a SkyTrain and West Coast Express station in Metro Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Station Details

Located in the city centre of Coquitlam, Coquitlam Central serves as a major transit hub in the Tri-Cities, with SkyTrain and West Coast Express services meeting with many local bus services connecting to/from the adjacent bus loop. Coquitlam Central also has a Park and Ride. The West Coast Express platform and station house opened with the West Coast Express in 1995 with the SkyTrain station and platforms opening in 2016. The Millennium Line Evergreen Extension opening ceremony was hosted in the concourse area of Coquitlam Central. There is a short spur to the south of the station for a potential SkyTrain extension to Port Coquitlam. The eastbound section of the spur is sometimes used for storage.

The SkyTrain station was designed by Francl Architecture.[1]

Public Art

There are two permanent public art pieces at the SkyTrain portion of Coquitlam Central. The first is titled Unity Tree by Paul Reimer of Cranbrook, BC using recycled SkyTrain tracks. The piece is located outside in front of the station and is inspired by the Western Red Cedars and the piece reprsents cultural diversity growing and living together.

The second piece is a tile mosaic with the station name on it as part of a series called Branching Out by Bruce Walther and YarOn Stern of Vancouver. There are similar mosaic tiles at each Coquitlam station along the Evergreen Extension.[2]

History

The adjacent bus loop and Park and Ride facility opened in 1991 and has since served as a major bus exchange in both the Tri-Cities and Metro Vancouver, with buses calling at the bus loop reaching as far west as Kootenay Loop in Vancouver and as far east as Mission City in the Fraser Valley. From its opening, the bus loop has been called and referred to as Coquitlam Station up until the completion of the Millennium Line Evergreen Extension when it was renamed to Coquitlam Central Station.

However, the original bus loop, called Coquitlam Centre, was located inside the Coquitlam Centre mall parking lot. Opened on August 15, 1979 to coincide with the opening of the mall, buses turned onto Pinetree Way and entered the mall near Anson Avenue, stopping in the parking lot before exiting out Anson Avenue and back onto Pinetree Way.[3]

In May 1986, the Park and Ride opened at its current location with 590 parking spaces to accommodate Expo 86 traffic. Expo visitors parked their cars at the Coquitlam Park–Ride as it was known during Expo, and took the special Expo express shuttle 170 Park–Ride/New Westminster Station to connect with SkyTrain.

On September 2, 1991, the original bus loop was closed and moved to its present location, following an expansion of the Park and Ride lot. The opening of the new Coquitlam Centre station was promoted as Coquitlam Centre Transit Exchange and coincided with changes in suburban Tri-City to downtown Vancouver services, with the introduction of SuperBus service on the 160 Vancouver/Port Coquitlam Centre and the terminating of services at Coquitlam Centre that previously went to Vancouver during peak hours, such as the 162, 163, 164 and 165.

Shortly after the opening of the new facilities, Coquitlam Centre, or Coquitlam Centre Transit Exchange as it was advertised, was renamed to Coquitlam Station.

In 1995, the West Coast Express service was introduced, with the opening of Coquitlam Central, directly south of the bus loop. The exchange remained as Coquitlam Station until the completion of the Evergreen Extension, when the loop was renamed to Coquitlam Central.

Bus Routes

The bus loop is located directly north of Coquitlam Central Station at Lougheed Highway and Pinetree Way.
