The Evergreen Line Rapid Transit Project is an 11-kilometre, seven-station, automated rapid transit line that connects Port Moody and Douglas College in Coquitlam with existing SkyTrain service at Lougheed Town Centre station in Burnaby. The project includes elevated and at-grade guideways, a two- kilometre bored tunnel, seven stations, five power substations, train operating systems, parking facilities, and a vehicle storage and light maintenance facility. The alignment navigates existing roadways, CPR tracks, and water crossings, with an incline ranging from one to six per cent through challenging ground conditions. Elevated and at-grade guideway construction is complete.

Test trains have begun running along the North Road corridor between Lougheed Town Centre Station and Burquitlam Station in July 2015. The project will be fully integrated with the existing SkyTrain system with completion scheduled for 2016.
