“Great locations and good price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2013

Great transportation system. Vancouver to the airport in 25 minutes for under 6:00 dollars. Bikes allowed, strollers, wheelchairs, suitcases. Gets crowded around busy travel times.

“Best source of transportation around Vancouver, reasonably priced and easy to use for those international travellers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2013

The skytrain was the best way to get around Vancouver when you are relying on public transport. You can purchase an all day pass which entitles you to travel on the skytrain, buses, seabus and ferries. It cost us $9.75 for the day which gave us unlimited travel. I would highly recommend using the skytrain.

“Easy to use and know the city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2013

It is an easy to use transport and very efficient. This is a good way to know Vancouver. We used it a couple of times to visit the Chinese Garden and the Hockey Stadium which I don't remember the name.

“Easy transport”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2013 via mobile

The skytrain is quick, easy to use (even for first-time travellers), and a cheap way to travel.

The zones are generous, with the seabus to the North Shore also included in the same tickets.

On a weekend, all tickets cost the same as a 1-zone ticket, no matter how many zones you cross.

Waterfront is the downtown hub, and is right by Gastown. We found it invaluable to our trip

“Efficient transportation in Vancouver”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

Sky Train is the rapid transit portion of Vancouver's overall public transportation system, that includes buses as well as the Sea Bus. The same fare card can be used on any of these systems. The rapid transit system to and from downtown Vancouver and the international airport is very efficient and economical.
This is not an "attraction" per se.
