Well, with the Canada Line now up and running for a good several months I think it is time to breath some new life into this thread:

Here is my new updated list:


Expo:

29th Ave
22nd St.
Gateway
King George

Millennium:

Sapperton
Lake City Way
Sperling-Burnaby lake
Holdom
Rupert
VCC-Clark

(Since my last list I have now used Nanaimo and Renfrew)

Canada:

King Edward
Oakridge - 41st
Langara - 49th
Aberdeen


Funny that the C-Line is the youngest yet there are only 4 stations on it I have yet to use.

Cheers!

Still have to answer all of them! Except, I have been to Metrotown. I however did not take the train... just saw others off!

I have been to the important stops on the Canada Line. Waterfront, Downtown, Yaletown, YVR...

Thats unbelievable!! Aren't you interested at the least to test out our rapid transit system?? Do we need someone here to drag you out onto it?

Sperling/Burnaby Lake
Lake City Way
Production Way - University

Figure its time to edit this.

Since moving to Coquitlam and looking for work, I've now used every station along the M-Line at least once!

Still haven't used either Royal Oak or Scott Road at any point in time. Thats not to say that I haven't walked past Royal Oak, just never actually gotten on the train there.

As for the Canada Line stations I've yet to use:


King Edward
Langara – 49th Avenue
Marine Drive
Bridgeport
Templeton
Aberdeen
Lansdowne

Oh wow I have to think back to when Skytrain first opened. Ok while some I have frequented quite often. Others I might have only been on once or twice before. And I did drive for a good 15 years in which time I almost never was on transit at all.

Expo
Nanaimo
22nd St

Millennium
Saperton
Production Way
Lake City
Renfrew

Canada Line
King Edward
Langara-49th
Marine Drive
Templeton
Sea Island Centre
Aberdeen

Wow! You used public transit, Yume? What happened? Wait I know... you were tricked by your butler who told you that the Canada Line was your new personal Taxi service and pointed you at the new shiny station at YVR.

But I don't understand why I had to stand, and nobody offered me any refreshments?

It is still surprisingly very shiny. I wonder if the MTA, MBTA, and TTC just invest $0 in cleanup and maintenance in their respective cities.

Even the LRT in Calgary is dirty in comparison, though I can count on one hand the amount of times I've been on it.

As someone who lives in Victoria but visits Vancouver regularily, here are the stops I have never visited:

Expo Line
-Nanaimo (although I did disembark at 29th last month to take a stroll around Renfrew Ravine Park!)
-Royal Oak
-Edmonds
-Gateway

Pretty good for an out-of-towner!

Millennium Line
-Renfrew
-Rupert
-Gilmore
-Brentwood
-Holdom
-Lake City Way
-Sapperton
-Brain

I should probably make a point of trying out some of these stops, they look gorgeous from what I've seen.

Canada Line
-Oakridge
-Templeton
-Sea Island (no intention to ever stop at the last two)

Surprised that I have less stops to see on the Canada Line than the others!

I've been on and off at ever single station. The only station I haven't "used" is 29th ave. I've only changed trains there (a few times I've left Broadway and decided to go back to get a pizza or A&W, and changing at Nanaimo is a pain because of the stairs, so I change at 29th, it's the only station I've never walked into or out of).

The only reason I consider I've used Sea Island way is because on the first weekend of service I was riding to the airport and the train door broke there, so everyone had to get off and get on the next train. So I consider it a practical use, but I've never left/entered that station either.

I had someone drop me off at Templeton and I had someone pick me up at Royal Oak, so I've only used those once. And I've only used Gateway once to go to the Canada Passport office there.
