Thanks for the updates. I can't believe how long this is taking. I think the entire Arbutus extension will be faster.

The entire Stadium-Chinatown stationhouse is getting enclosed in a tent.

White tent means they are painting the station.

Probably planned for when they do the more extensive renovation, seems like it's a waterproofing issue because I doubt the station was ever painted and it would seem stupid to paint it when they are planning on revamping the station in the near future.

I'm telling you, before they painted over the skylights the station was nowhere near as gloomy as it is now.

A few high powered LED lights will make it seem like daytime in there 24/7.

As in long narrow lights running parallel with the stainless steel ceiling trim or recessed with the trim itself?

This serves most of the major venues in town. They get huge lineups.

I use this station almost daily. Those machines are no longer there. I haven't counted the new ones in their current spot but it feels like there are less now.

That area was filled in about a decade ago with the Waves Coffee house. There's a door in the far corner now that connects to Platform 3.

One of the big benefits of the Compass Card is that there are a lot fewer people who need to purchase their fare at a ticket machine now. They just need to stop there once in a while to fill up their card, and that's only the folks who don't do it online.
