“Fast & Convenient”
Review of SkyTrain

SkyTrain
Ranked #2 of 34 Transportation in Vancouver
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed October 30, 2013

The Sky train in Vancouver is great.
Wait time is minimal and it makes getting around a city with bad traffic very manageable.
Stations are conveniently located around the city and you can get most places in under 20 minutes.
My only negative is that it can be extremely crowded, but I guess that is to be expected.

PROS: fast, inexpensive, short if any wait and clean, great way to get around, perfect to get to and from the airport - no need for car or taxi!

(only) CON: we did witness an attempted purse snatching upon exiting the Broadway/City Hall Station -just a reminder to remain aware of ones surroundings

We took the SkyTrain after our cruise to get to the airport. While it wasn't right at the cruise terminal, the two block walk wasn't bad. The train and platform were clean, well lit, and very accessible. It was quick, simple, cost effective, and took us right to the terminal. Once the tran emerges from underground, you can take one last look at the city from above, a perspective you won't get from ground transportation (i.e. car).

We used the SkyTrain rather than drive and try to find parking which in Vancouver can be very expensive.
The system is easy to use and is very safe. If you have a problem with the ticket dispenser, which we did, there is an agent who will help.
Buy an inexpensive day pass and visit lots of areas. Great way to explore and the day pass allows you to ride buses and seabus.
