411 SENIORS CENTRE ELEVATOR USE ADVISORY

Please be advised that renovation on the second (middle) elevator at 333 Terminal Avenue will begin shortly.

During this time the elevators will be programmed in the following manner:

Car #1 (the one farthest to the left if you are facing the elevators) will be programmed to stay on the ground floor with the doors open.  This car will be responsible for taking passengers up to the requested floors.

Car #3 (the one farthest to the right) will be the elevator that takes passengers down to the ground floor or parkade from the floors above.  When you are on the upper floors, only this elevator will respond to take you down.

Car 1 is programmed to have the doors open and is safe to ride.  This elevator has just passed all required tests from the BC Safety Authority.

This system will be in place for approximately 7 weeks.

We thank you in advance for your patience.
