Bridgeport lies along the south bank of the North Arm of the Fraser River, with access to Vancouver via the Oaks Street Bridge and the Knight Street Bridge. Industrial areas fill most of the area, and especially on Mitchell Island. There is the small Tait residential area, with single family homes close to Bridgeport Rd, and multi-family housing closer to the river. Bridgeport will receive a SkyTrain station on the new Canada Line in 2009.
