And that's about twice as much capacity as Surrey LRT...

Sorry, I just have to say it

The issue yesterday with the SkyTrain seems to of been a problem with a cable for the ATC. They didn't say if it was a fiber trunk or a length of leaky coax but a train went over the dead block, lost contact with the VCC and timed out as it's designed to do in such an instance.

The flipside is that passengers anywhere on the M-Line can transfer at Production Way or Lougheed for a same-platform transfer.

It's a wash when it comes to ease of transfers along the traditional M-line route.

The losers in this new scenario:
  • Lougheed passengers en route to SFU ( have to choose a platform and may not get the next train )
  • Suburb-to-suburb transit ( Tri-cities to Surrey/New West/Burnaby ) Lougheed transfer is up and down, going to Production Way will definitely mean you miss the next Expo Line train.
Essentially, it adds at least another 5–10 minutes to a trip that already has lower train frequency ( Expo between Columbia and Lougheed )

You can definitely see WHY we have the current setup. It was really to help residents of the Tri-cities. While your average person won't be affected that much anyone in a wheelchair, scooter, bike, stroller, large luggage will be affected negatively
The Tri-Cities commuters going back home from Sapperton will have a cross platform transfer.
So it's a swap from same platform outbound trip (morning) to same platform inbound trip (evening)
