Weekend fare is a flat $2.75 for adults and add $5.00 if you are heading to or coming from the airport. The trains are clean and on-time. There are plenty of visual or audio information on board the trains to tell you where you are going. Nice way to travel downtown!

Very easy to use light rail type system. Boarded at station located adjacent to Amtrak station. Covers a lot of territory but with many, convenient stops along the way. Clean and friendly. Great way to get downtown!

Very clean and it works well. A quick way to move around the city. It is expensive, but it is worth.

The Sky Train is available all the time. We bought 2 senior passes for 7.50 each and rode all transportation all day.

Best way to get from the airport to downtown! Fast Direct and you don't have to worry about traffic! If you are leaving from the Airport, pick you ticket up for the at the 7eleven in the airport, it is cheaper. The day pass will get you all over, from downtown to the airport to Richmond and Surray and Back!

I remember the old days when you needed to wait half and hour or more for the downtown hotel bus to arrive and then schlep passengers all the way from the airport in Richmond to the downtown hotels. What a colossal waste of time. Usually an hour and half or more. Since the Vancouver Olympics now all one does is... More

Clean and efficient. Easy to navigate. One day ticket was very good value as you can use it to travel on the ferry to North Vancouver.

Easy, clean and efficient way to get around. Had to meet my daughter and being from out of town, I found the sky train to be an accessible and efficient travel mode.
