HistoryEdit

Yaletown–Roundhouse station opened in 2009, and its name is derived from the neighbourhood in which it is located, as well as a historic railway roundhouse which now serves as a community centre.[2] VIA Architecture was the architecture firm responsible for designing the station.[3]

In 2018, TransLink announced that Yaletown–Roundhouse station, as well as two other Canada Line stations located in downtown Vancouver, would receive an accessibility upgrade which includes additional escalators.[4] Construction began on January 28, 2019, and was completed by July.[5][6][7]
