Vancouver to Chilliwack is 63 miles. To put things in perspective, here in Washington DC there was a big pushback against expanding the Washington metro into Manassas and Prince William County because that was 'too much' for a rapid transit system to handle. And Washington to Manassas is "only" 29 miles. 63 miles is definitely commuter rail territory. I'm not sure how fast SkyTrain is but rapid transit systems are around 25 miles per hour, no? I'm not sure I want to way 2.5 hours waiting for the subway to land in Chilliwack.

Best case scenario is Via Rail builds a station in Chilliwack or Abbotsford on their Vancouver-Kamloops line.

I do think Sky Train should be expanding deep into Surrey and Langley though. Isn't Surrey supposed to surpass Vancouver in population in 25 years or so? 4 stops seems a bit...lacking.

The West Coast Express is a Diesel Commuter rail not the Skytrain...

63 miles isn't that long for Commuter rail or Regional Rail , some lines go over 100 miles. I'm sure it would get decent ridership if they had hourly departures....

At that distance it need to be a fairly fast service. Where I live trains (intercity not suburban) cover such a distance in about 1 h 20 min, but in a less mountainous environment 1 h should be feasible.

Chilliwack is on the other side of the Fraser River where the current terminus is. There is a rail bridge but the it is fairly old and so it would be an expensive endeavor with limited ridership.

I consider that trolleybus systems are in some cases better than tram systems for their flexibility and autonomy, not to mention its infrastructure is cheaper and easily implemented.

TransLink’s long-delayed Compass card system to be fully operational next month

BY KELLY SINOSKI, POSTMEDIA NEWS MARCH 1, 2016

TransLink’s Compass card and fare gate system will be fully operational by next month, three years after the system was initially promised to be up and running.

The transportation authority said Tuesday it intends to shut the gates at SkyTrain and SeaBus stations on April 4, with the system in full gear by April 8.

At that time, all transit users will require a Compass card or a Compass ticket to use SkyTrain or SeaBus. Although passengers can still use FareSaver tickets or cash on buses, they will still need a Compass card or ticket to access the rest of the system.
