This is brilliant piece of transportation system. This is well connected by bus transport systems. Weekend is zone free and weekdays are not. You can buy ticket paying money, ticket book of 10s and pass as well. This can be used in both SkyTrain as well in Buses.

We travelled on the Sky Train from Vancouver to Loughneed Station where my cousin Leilani was meeting us. The train is spotlessly clean. Lots of comfortable seats. Frequent colour route maps (above each set of doors). Obtaining tickets is easy: big centrally located ticket machine at entrance to trains. Interactive screen. A couple of screen taps states fare; pay via... More

Really efficient and easy service to use to get to your hotel in downtown Vancouver from the airport. Quick and cheap with staff on hand to help, if needed.

The Sky Train from Vancouver Airport to Downtown / Waterfront was very good, clean and efficient. Trains are frequent and seem to run to a very tight timetable. Cheap too.

Easy to access the stations and to board the trains. We were able to travel together at a reasonable price. Scenery was easily seen as the windows are large. We experienced no inconveniences during our trips.

Our hotel in Richmond was an easy walk to the Skytrain. You bought passes with your credit card by Kiosks. Fast trip to an area downtown we could walk around and sightsee and eat. Trip back just as easy. Much simpler than bus and cheaper than cab.

I've been in a lot of places and I can tell the best public transportation I ever saw is the Skytrain from Vancouver. You can go almost everywhere with the trains, and usually you go seated. It's fast and clean, just like Vancouver.

Very clean! Machine easy to use and map easy to follow. Doors stayed open long enough to easily drag the suitcases onboard.

We were not sure about the Sky Train, however, opted to try it for transportation to our hotel in downtown Vancouver. Trains run frequently and have plenty of room for luggage. We wound up using the sky train almost exclusively for our travel around Vancouver.

Great way to travel between outlying districts to the city. Very efficient and cost effective at on $4 per trip. Very frequent departures from stations, clean and user friendly.
