Used the sky train several times during our recent vacation. For less than $10.00 CA travels from airport to the waterfront. Clean, safe, and easily navigated.

Love skytrain! So convenient and for us, very reliable! We were visiting from Chilliwack, staying in New Westminster, our hotel was steps away from a terminal and took us to downtown Vancouver in no time. It was so great not worrying about traffic or parking,...More

So I come from Northern California where we have BART. This is so much better than BART. Cars are clean, I feel safe, and I can clearly hear the upcoming train stops. Our system at home is so screechy and loud inside that I can't...More

The taxi line at the airport was enormous, and the back car limo counter recommended the sky train because at rush hour it would save us over 40 minutes. Quick and simple to the waterfront. On the way back, you really need to read the...More

We rode from Bridgeport to City Center had no issues Fri-Sun. Friday was pack like sardines but that was expected as it was rush hour both trips. Sat & Sun was pretty empty in the morning and not to full in the afternoon.

How I wish Seattle had something like the SkyTrain. We were staying in Richmond and used the train for our two day visit. Nothing could be easier.

Vancouver's traffic can frustrate you if you are touring around. Don't wast time and hop on the sky train. Only 2 lines which make it simple. We stayed at Canada Place which was the beginning/end of the line; very convenient. It's clean but not spotless.

Comfortable & clean way to see some of the attractions in the city. Very reasonably priced. Easy to navigate. Stops announced in advance of the stops.

Go all the way from the station opposite the airport exit to the final stop, Waterfront. Canada Place is just round corner.

Assuming that you want to see the Vancouver Museum, proably the the closest stop on Skytrain is at the Olympic Village. If its a nice day you could take a bus to Granville Island then walk along the seawall. It is a... More

Hummm...that depends: you can walk to Bridgeport station, 30 min walk if you have light luggage, and take to Canada Line to DT Vancouver. You can also take the public transit system, but there is no direct bus to the station... More
