Great service

The system is easy to navigate, and not overly crowded when we used it. Cars and stations are very clean. Also, other commuters were quiet and respectful.

We used the Sky Train a few times as we went back to Vancouver a few times during our 5 week stay. You get on it at the airport. You buy your ticket at the platform or you can buy it on the train when they come around. It is about $9 If you are going into the Vancouver downtown... More

We took the train to our hotel from the airport. It was a bit confusing learning which one to get on but just ask around. Very resonable price and goes often. Very clean. Luggage was a little tricky since we had alot.

Awesome!!!! Clean, efficent, Not sure of how to operate the pay method, seems confusing but the local couple we were with, did it and knows how to get around the paying machine. Once onboard, it was fine. Gotta know what line to get on and off, which is marked outside rail station and inside the rail car. Alot of people... More

Coming in from the airport to downtown, this is THE BEST way to get there. Plenty of room on the trains to drag your luggage around. $20 for two adults, A taxi would have easily cost $80 in rush hour traffic. It tooks us right downtown to withing a 4 block walk to our hotel. Easy walk. The train was... More

We took the Sky Train from the airport into Vancouver to the stop nearest the cruise ship terminal. Excellent and convenient transport at a very reasonable cost.

Vancouver is a great city to avoid car rentals and driving. One day train passes are about $10CAD, good for all zones, all day... can't beat it... Leave the car at home!

We used the Sky Train on several occasions. Very easy to figure out, and it took us pretty much anywhere. If you plan your trip well, one ticket an get you to and from your destination.

Most easiest and affordable way to get to the airport (YVR) within 30 minutes, just make sure you check the times, does not run 24/7, but pretty close to, something like last train around 1am, and first train is 500ish. Very clean and safe also.

We used the Skytrain to travel from the airport to Vancouver and bought tickets from the machine located at the station. If a friend is meeting you, get them to buy tickets beforehand at a 7eleven or Pharmacare and you'll save a $5 dollar surcharge on each ticket. The service is quick and pleasant and within 45 minutes you are... More
