Quick and efficient way to get from YVR to downtown. It's a little pricey at first glance, but if you get a day saver ticket, this is valid on the subway, buses and even the Seabus over to North Vancouver. Which is handy.

I when straight from the airport to the train, many staff there to help, as I din't have a clue how to pay or which train. I did everything for men and 20 minutes later downtown at the hotel.

We were visiting and had a couple of hours to kill. We took the waterfront stop and took a 1 1/4 hour trip. The train was modern and very comfortable. The train operates mostly above ground and their are some excellent senior all day passes.

The Vancouver Skytrain is awesome; quick; affordable and convenient. We stayed in Richmond and it was a quick 15 minutes to downtown Vancouver; trains every 3 or 4 minutes.

As someone coming from a city that's limited almost exclusively to busses, I found the skytrain to be a neat new experience. Google wasn't always clear about when it had me on the skytrain vs a bus (it showed the same icon), but once I...More

Good fast ride to the Grouse Mountain. A good fast ride over a beautiful scenery to go to the top of Grouse Mountain. The ride was smooth and comfortable even for someone like me who is afraid of heights.

$4.10 for adult and we were told if you travel from Intl Airport into the city you pay an extra fee (tax) but leaving Vancouver we didn't have to pay, it's a one way fee.
