Burnaby’s busiest SkyTrain station is a little more colourful now thanks to a partnership struck between TransLink and some talented B.C. art students. 

The artists, a group of fourth-year students taking the Illustration Program at Emily Carr University, were commissioned as part of TransLink’s “Let’s Ride!” initiative.

The initiative is geared to bring awareness of Metro Vancouver’s existing cycling infrastructure and encourage its use. As such, the students were tasked with creating designs that would go on five bike parkades at various SkyTrain stations. 

One of the parkades is at Metrotown SkyTrain station.
