At one time, BC had the country's largest interurban rail system
. Passengers could ride
from this station on Carrall Street east to Chilliwack and south to Steveston. The trains ran from about 1890 until 1958. Power
was supplied by stations at Buntzen and Stave Lakes. Gradually these routes were replaced by bus and trolley lines, which are currently operated by Translink
