Station Details

Sometimes referenced simply as Production, Production Way–University is located at Lougheed Highway and Production Way. The station is located directly east from the Lake City industrial park and at the base of Burnaby Mountain, close to nearby Simon Fraser University. The station serves as a hub for Simon Fraser University students connecting to/from 145 SFU, SkyTrain, and other local bus services.

The Expo Line was extended to Production Way–University on October 22, 2016, making it one of the three Expo Line terminus stations. Production Way–University was the only station on the Expo Line to retain its original Millennium Line branding until it was changed to the current station signage branding style in June 2017. When the station opened, Production Way–University was displayed as Production Way/University on station signage.

As part of TransLink's Proximity Enabled Accessible Entrances project, proximity sensors were to be installed at all accessible faregates at Production Way–University as part of a trial before a system wide installation. The sensors were installed in late-October 2017.

The station was designed by Hotson Bakker Architects and the superstructure and sweeping roof design is a reference to the architecture of Simon Fraser University. Production Way–University uses steel frames to form and support the roof canopy. Its side walls were prefabricated by Solid Rock Steel of Vancouver and were lifted piece by piece onto the guideway. The side walls are adorned by coloured stained glass.[1][2]
