“Convenient and fast way to get to Downtown Vancouver”
Reviewed May 4, 2012

My husband and I almost never take transit since we're very used to the comfort of car driving. But we definately take the Canada line when going to eat and drink in Downtown Vancouver. Trains run every 5-10 minutes and you can get to downtown from Richmond in less than 45 minutes!

“Travel fast and cheap with view”
Reviewed May 3, 2012

Unlike metro or underground, one can travel over the surface and see the city, mountains and so. It is very convenient as it stops near Pacific Convention Center, which one can achieve underground and avoid the usual rain.

“Canada line is awesome”
Reviewed May 2, 2012

Travelling from the ferry to downtown is super easy now with the Canada Line. On a weekend, the cost was only $2.50
