Capstan Station Engagement

The Capstan Station public engagement concluded on November 23, 2020. Information about the project will be made available on the TransLink website in the coming weeks.

TransLink is working with the City of Richmond on the design of a new station on Canada Line. The future Capstan Station will be built near No. 3 Road and Capstan Way.

At this stage of the project, we are ready to share the station design concept that has been developed to this point. Please take some time to learn more about the project on this website, including through the engagement boards which illustrate different views of the station.

Please complete the short survey below to provide us with any comments or questions you have about the future Capstan Station. We will share the feedback we receive following the engagement period.

  • How Did We Get Here?

    10 Nov 2020

    In 2012, the Capstan Station Funding Agreement was signed between the City of Richmond and TransLink to plan for the construction of the Capstan Station on Canada Line. This was a unique funding arrangement through which the City collected funds from developers in the area in exchange for density bonuses to help raise the necessary money for the project. This was an innovative approach to building projects and delivering an improved customer service, while lessening the burden on taxpayers.

    In late 2017, the City of Richmond had raised the necessary funds for TransLink to begin work on a concept design for the station. In December 2019, TransLink and the City agreed to the design concept. TransLink has since been working collaboratively with the City and other stakeholders to progress the design and ensure it meets the City’s objective of a connected, liveable neighbourhood.

  • About the Project

    10 Nov 2020

    Capstan Station will be a new Canada Line station in the City of Richmond, built in the area of No. 3 Road and Capstan Way. It will be located between the existing Bridgeport and Aberdeen stations. The station is being built to support the growing development in the area and to provide customers with convenient access to the SkyTrain network.

    The Canada Line network was built to accommodate a station at this location at a point in the future once customer demand for service and funding became available. That time is now, so we can accommodate the ridership demand we anticipate well into the future.

    As Richmond continues to welcome more residents, this exciting project will deliver a safe, efficient, and environmentally sustainable transportation option for the Capstan Village area, which projects up to 16,000 residents once nearby developments are completed.

    TransLink has worked closely with the City of Richmond to advance our design work. The station will be integrated with the nearby roads and buildings, and will meet the City’s objectives for the area, such as developing connected, transit-oriented neighbourhoods. TransLink will be responsible for the station itself, while the City will manage the nearby amenities, roads, bike lanes, etc.
