Reviewed April 12, 2013

If you are flying into vancouver, instead of taking a taxi, the skytrain is excellent. Fast, clean, safe and many stops, also a lot less $.

“Great transport.”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

This is a great service. Some lines even give good views of the surrounding areas. The service is frequent, well used by locals and moves promptly. There is a new ticketing system being introduced and we found it confusing as there weren't enough signs around, and staff were not available in all areas. But its cheap, clean, quick and reliable. We even used it to get to the airport late at night to fly home.

...for only 4$. Can't beat the cost or reliability of this public transit system. Wish we had this back home!

“fast ride”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

If you want to get to or from downtown Vancouver to outlying areas like Burnaby, New Westminster or Surrey the sky train is the way to go. It is the fastest way to travel. You don't have to worry about trying to find a parking space (which would cost you an arm and a leg)
