SkyTrain – Vancouver, Canada

SkyTrain is the metropolitan rail system of Greater Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. SkyTrain uses fully automated trains on grade-separated tracks running on underground and elevated guideways. The name, SkyTrain, was coined for the system during Expo 86 because the first line (Expo) principally runs on elevated guideway outside of Downtown Vancouver. SkyTrain has 47 stations on three lines: Expo, Millennium, and Canada Lines. The Expo Line and Millennium Line are operated by British Columbia Rapid Transit Company under contract from TransLink (originally BC Transit), a regional government transportation agency.

SkyTrain awarded a contract to a TransitVUE® systems integrator to provide a physical layer track level intrusion detection system to detect objects or people on the track and unauthorized areas for select stations. TransitVUE® provided our intrusion detection sensor matting system, which included 90 meters of sensor matting per station, interconnect cabling, system controller, and the TransitVUE® management software.
