SKYTRAIN TOUR - BC Rapid Transit Centre (BCRTC)
1:15 PM, July 12, 2019
This will consist of tour of BCRTC which will include an in depth tour of the control room. This area is similar to a airport control tower but instead of planes, trains are managed along with communications and power. Our control room is not open to the general public and is a unique opportunity to see how things work in the background. The other area that we will look at is the maintenance side of our operations. We will show you how the trains operate and explain the maintenance process.
