Coming from the Airport this is the best and fastest mode going to downtown or the waterfront for about $9. Fast. clean, convenient and cheap. Enough space for luggage.

Its one of the fastest and cheapest mode of transport. To avoid traffic during rush hours this is the best way to commute. We travelled often using Skytrain its clean, comfortable and frequency is excellent. And for the tickets its advisable to purchase a day pass ($9.75), it allows travel on all translink mode (Seabus, Bus, Skytrain) and way cheaper... More

$9 fare from right outside the airport to the middle of downtown, in less than 30 minutes. Quiet, clean, and convenient, with room onboard for luggage. Given this serious consideration if you normally take a cab or shuttle bus.

Used the Canada Line when I needed to get to my downtown hotel - senior rate plus airport fee came to $7.75 - far cheaper than a taxi. Only 2 block walk to my hotel from the Vancouver City Centre stop. Return trip to airport from North Vancouver (Seabus then Skytrain) was $5 cheaper and took only 45 minutes even... More

It's not huge, so doesn't cover all of Vancouver, but the main areas have stations. It's clean, reliable and does the job. I wouldn't necessarily go out of my way to use it if it wasn't the best way to get somewhere!!!

Taking the skytrain is agreat way to avoid all the traffic above(or below). Relatively fast and reliable service, definitely better to take the skytrain than drive.

The Canada Line will take you right to the Airport and/or Richmond. It is so easy to get around from the Airport to downtown.

Very easy way to get around town. Use this and the buses and you're set. Get a day pass. Well signed, only 2 tracks, coming and going. Easy access, elevators and escalators most places, and stairs.

My husband and I were going for a day trip through Vancouver, so time was important to us. SkyTrain got us to our destination quickly. It would've been better if the SkyTrain had a service to the ferry terminal. We had to transfer to a very packed bus for an uncomfortable 30-40 minute standing room only ride.
