“Gives a good perspective of Vanvouver”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

Took the Sky Train Millenium Loop to get a feel for the size of the place - good value as it was only a few dollars and took little over an hour.

Fast clean and easy to use. You do need to purchase your ticket prior at machine prior to boarding. Easy and cheap way to move about the city with ease. Locals were helpful with station info.

“Skytrain: a great way to explore Vancouver”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

We purchased a transit day pass for $9.75. This allowed us access to all transit busses, skytrain, sea bus, & Canada Line to the airport. Great value. The skytrain was a wonderful experience. We were able to go to Canada Place, Metrotown, Science World, New West, Lonsdale Quay & Gas Town. It was quite a day. The skytrain allowed us to explore quite a bit of territory. There is no way we could have done this by car. The skytrain travels above & below ground. When above ground, you get quite a view. If you have family travelling with you that have trouble getting around; this mode of site seeing they will enjoy. Also very economical & plusses on cleanliness.

“A Ride in the Sky”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

Found the system very easy to use, one ticket each to travel all around for 24 hours. ($1.75 each for Seniors) Be certain to check your ticket as to expiry time.

We have used the SkyTrain many times when visiting Vancouver and find it easy for transportation. Using the day pass is handy when you want to visit many places
