Granville

Located near: Vancouver Public Library, The Bay, Vancouver Art Gallery, Entertainment District.
Serviced by: Expo Line, Millennium Line (Canada Line service provided by nearby Vancouver City Centre Station)

Reason for importance: Aside from being a connector station for the Millennium Line to the Expo/Millennium portion of the line, Commercial-Broadway receives many of its passengers due to its connection with the 99 B-Line to UBC, the busiest bus route in Vancouver.

Broadway Station

Metrotown

Located near: Metrotown
Serviced by: Expo Line, Millennium Line
Reason for importance: The main reason why Metrotown gets the amount of passengers as it does is due to the Mall, the second largest in Canada. Metrotown is one of the top three busiest SkyTrain stations, the others being Granville and Commercial-Broadway.

Metrotown Station

Columbia

Located near: 4th Street
Serviced by: Expo Line, Millennium Line
Reason for importance: Columbia Station gets its share of importance as it is the final station before the Expo and Millennium Lines seperate.

Columbia Station

Surrey Central

Reason for importance: Surrey Central is by the busiest SkyTrain station in Surrey. As most Surrey buses terminate here, Surrey Central receives a constant flow of passengers arriving and leaving the station.

Surrey Central Station
