History

The first Mission City CPR station was built in 1882, at a site near St. Mary's Mission, further to the east. Subsequent railway stations were located at Mission City Junction on the western end of Railway Avenue, at the foot of Grand Street,just a little west of the current commuter rail station. First station at the junction was in 1885 and a second railway station was built in 1892 in the “Y” of the tracks. The most recent 1909 CPR station building, which had been recognized as a municipal historic site in 1982, was destroyed by fire in 1999.

Canadian National Railway and Canadian Pacific Railway have a track sharing agreement, with all freight trains operating eastbound through the station on the CPR tracks.

Services

Mission City is served by five West Coast Express trains per day in each direction: five in the morning to Vancouver, and five in the evening to Mission. In addition, rail service is supplemented by TransLink's 701 bus route. Eight of its daily trips (two in the morning, two in the afternoon, and four in the evening), are extended between Coquitlam Central station and Mission City station, running non-stop between Haney Place Exchange and Mission City station. Service does not run on weekends.
