It should cover more spots in the city. Besides that, the quality of the few stations it have, are great. Clean, easy to use, and considerable good value-for-money.

What a brilliant idea to build the transit system out to the airport - - thank you Olympics! For a nominal fee you can travel to and from the airport. Everything is level or there are elevators to take you from level to level. Save time....save the cab fare.

We were skeptical of using the Sky Train, never having been to Vancouver before but it turned out to be shockingly easy. We would definitely use it again to travel when visiting.

It's fast and you can count on it. You can avoid lots of junctions travelling on the bus compared to the Skytrain, although the design and architecture of the stations could be much better compared to Tehran, Iran Subway. You have the opportunity to see beautiful scenes around while you are in the sky!

The Skytrain is definitely the way to go from the airport to downtown. Little more pricey from the airport but it's worth it.

Took sky train from Vancouver airport to waterfront station, which is located in downtown Vancouver. Cost only $9 compared to $40 for taxi. Took no more than 15 minutes. Fast and safe. No problem with rolling luggage on skytrain.

The transit system in vancouver is a painful topic for any vancouverite..lately trains have needed maintenance on the regular causing main street and stadium stations to be shut down at times. Also dont expect to stay out until the bar closes and take the train home. Tip.1.transit cops will check if you have a valid ticket. Buses too..expect a $200... More

Journeyed from airport to downtown. Great. Not all in the sky though. Last section is underground. Good value, clean and quick.

I have a car, and don't live near any sky train stations, mores the pity for me, because it's a great transportation option. Why drive in rush hour traffic, when you can sit, read, and watch the city whiz by you. I take the sky train anytime I can.

Rode the skytrain all over Vancouver, Richmond, and had no difficulty at all. I use a mobility scooter and had no problems what so ever. Level entrances to the trains, lifts everywhere for easy access getting in the stations. I have not had better access in all my travels. I have been to Britian,Ireland, Scotland, France, South America, Mexico, and... More
