Planning for SkyTrain to UBC

In April and May of 2021, TransLink surveyed over 15,000 people from across Metro Vancouver and found that 92% of respondents support the extension of SkyTrain to UBC. People who live further from UBC, beyond the City of Vancouver, were even more likely to say they support the extension (93% support). Read the report and learn more about this current phase of work. 



No. The Broadway Subway ends at Arbutus Street. Transit riders heading to UBC will be required to transfer to B-Line and local route busses heading to UBC. It is anticipated that on opening day of the Broadway Subway UBC-bound ridership will exceed capacity so people will be waiting for space on B-Line busses when they get off of SkyTrain.

The Broadway Subway to Arbutus Street is expected to open by 2025. Planning and design for the completion of the extension to UBC could advance during construction of the first phase, leading to an opening day of 2030. This timeline assumes full funding commitments by all levels of government by 2021.

UBC envisions a seamless extension of the Broadway Subway to the UBC Vancouver campus. The University is engaging our community, regional partners and senior levels of government to determine the best way to accelerate and fund this second phase.
