The Hyundai Rotem EMU is the subway car used by SkyTrain (Vancouver) on the Canada Line. They were built by Hyundai Rotem in Changwon, South Korea.[1] There were 20 two-car trains sets built between 2005-2007.[2][3]

The same manufacturer will supply new vehicles for other SkyTrain lines.[4]

Description[edit | edit source]

The Hyundai Rotem EMU is a two-car train set made of stainless steel with a polyvinyl chloride wrap around the exterior. The train sets are 41 meters long, and 3 meters wide. The Hyundai Rotem EMUs are slightly wider than the Bombardier Innovia Metro on the nearby Expo Line (TransLink) and Millennium Line.

In 2005, SNC-Lavalin formed a contract with Hyundai Rotem for 20 two-car train sets for the Canada Line. The cars were delivered in 2008. They began service on August 17, 2009.[5]
