Royal Oak is an elevated station on the Expo Line of Metro Vancouver's SkyTrain rapid transit system. The station is located at the intersection of Beresford Street and Royal Oak Avenue in Burnaby, British Columbia, a short walk south of Kingsway and Imperial Avenue.

History[edit]

Royal Oak station was built in 1985 as part of the original SkyTrain system (now known as the Expo Line).

In 2002, Millennium Line service was introduced to the station, which provided outbound service to VCC–Clark (originally Commercial–Broadway) via Columbia station in New Westminster. This service was discontinued and replaced with the Expo Line branch to Production Way–University in 2016.
