Because we do not use the Sky Train often, we were hard pressed to find the requirements for the concession fare cost. The... More

If going to Vancouver - the best fastest by far and cheapest ride to downtown (including cruise terminal) is the 'Skytrain'. It departs from right inside the main terminal building and offers a fast comfortable well explained ride to downtown and points beyond. Why sit in traffic when you could be there in minutes for just a few dollars? Sit... More

Wow! Saved a lot of $$$ taking skytrain to the YVR. Took taxi to the hotel, but got educated by locals once I arrived. Very affordable great way to get in and out of the city.

This is a great addition to the city's needs. Every city should have one. Drivers are friendly and there's always a stop near where you need.

The Skytrain is fantastic to get from the airport to right downtown - the waterfront. I used it today to get from Surrey to downtown, just $5.50, what a deal! Of course there are other routes with lots of stations.

Once we reached our hotel we parked the vehicle and left it parked until we left 4 days later. Almost any area you wish to go to is accessible by transit. We used the buses and sky train during the day and at night, and never felt unsafe. The transit drivers are friendly and helpful, as are the security guards... More

We rode the Sky Train a couple of times and it was fun with a great view. Just like a sub way but higher up. Value OK and pretty good locations for the stops.
