The world's longest automated light rapid transit system has a length of 49.5 kilometres with some sections elevated and some running below ground in the city centre. The system runs on standard gauge without drivers. The first line was built for use at the Expo 86 world fair.
Vancouver Skytrain units 001-136 were built by UTDC from 1984 to 1991 & 137-156 were built by Bombardier in Kingston, Ontario and operate on standard gauge. The design of the first units were based upon the Scarborough RT units but are fully automated (without driver).
The 2nd series of cars were built by Bombardier with prototypes 201 & 202 built in Kingston, ON in 2000 and the production units (203-260) built in Burnaby, BC in 2001 & 2002.
