“Cheap and efficient”
Review of SkyTrain

SkyTrain
Ranked #1 of 35 Transportation in Vancouver
Certificate of Excellence

Reviewed August 9, 2014

I guess most cities' public transport could be considered cheap and efficient when compared to the monstrosity that is TFL. Having said that, the trains and platforms are clean and clearly signposted. No problems here whatsoever.

This is the best way to get to and from the airport by far. It's convenient and inexpensive and gets you downtown in no time. And, since Vancouver has such a picturesque physical setting, you get to see it from a distance on the way.

I was very impressed by my first experience on the Canada Line traveling to and from the Airport. The train is well designed, immaculate, spacious and fast. Watching the many visitors using this great link into Vancouver I felt an immense pride in my City.
I find the Skytrain, day to day a great way to travel around the city. Frequent, always clean and great views as it moves through different areas. People are usually very polite and I am always comfortable on the Skytrain.

Driverless trains that are a joy to use. Pay your fare, step on and step off at your destination.
Clean and simple as how all public transport should be.

Quick way to move across the city. Lots of security present. Keep your ticket to prove payment and avoid hefty fine.
