Trains

Bothered by the train? The Burrard Inlet Line Working Group is focused on what can be done to minimize the impact of rail traffic through our neighborhood.


It is often said that Canada was built around railways and railways built the communities. Not so for the Burrard Inlet (BI) Line and Vancouver.


What's with all those the colourful, Lego-like containers that have been chugging through Strathcona on the Burrard Inlet Line since the beginning of 2017?

Dear Madames/Sirs:

RE: Noise complaint by the Strathcona Residents Association re: Burrard Inlet Rail Line


If you ride the #22 bus, you've probably noticed how unreliable it's been since January 2017. Several times a day, our dear #22 is held up by trains that block Venables Street.


If a train is stopped or shunting for more than 5 minutes at a time, and is blocking a road that someone is waiting to cross, it is against federal regulations and you can report it.

Update: We ended mediation on August 28, as no solution was in sight.
