Links: It won’t be called the Evergreen Line?


Evergreen Line Name Change

So maybe it won’t be called the Evergreen Line after all? News broke this week that perhaps Translink won’t name the new SkyTrain line the Evergreen. The final configuration of how the lines will flow together hasn’t been completely decided yet, but what is looking likely is that the Evergreen Line will actually be an […]
