Granville SkyTrain Station Update

The all new Dunsmuir Exit

Curious about my previous question whether the new Granville Station SkyTrain wing would have enough traffic to fill its new shop spaces, I made a short detour to enter the station via the new entrance this morning.

Granted, it’s only been two days, so a lot of people haven’t figured it out yet, and most people I’m sure enter and exit the station the same way they always have simply out of habit, but in the probably 3-4 minutes of walking through the length of the new wing, I think I saw a total of four other people.

The pre-existing hallways were packed wall-to-wall with morning commuters.

The contrast was striking.

The real fun part, however, came when I emerged from the new archway onto the eastbound train platform, which was already full of people. A sleepy-looking man in a business suit spun around and stared at me as if I’d just sprung fully-grown from the head of Zeus. He then squinted his eyes and peered up the new hallway trying to figure out where it led to, presumably. I smiled at him, and gave him my best “I’d tell you, but I’d have to kill you” look.

The temptation to try for another reaction tomorrow morning but this time wearing a funny hat or a full body chicken suit is almost too good to pass up.
