I only need to take the Canada Line (there are other sky train lines too, just not got a chance to get on them) to get to places in Vancouver, Downtown, Richmond and Airport. Just watch out for the CAD$7.75 ticket (an extra CAD$5, on top of the regular 1-zone ticket fare of CAD$2.25) you need to pay when you... More

Didn't get a car this trip and used the SkyTrain to do Vancouver touristy things while visiting Burnaby. Directions to locations were easy to get to, payment for travel was easy. Travelling at rush hour is unbelievably busy (wasn't expecting it to be that crowded). The hum/squeal that the train makes when it's travelling is loud. I would recommend using... More

Great way to get from the airport to your downtown hotel. Easy to find, easy to use. Took us 20 minutes at $7.50 per person . We will use it again to get back to the airport .

I have been traveling to Vancouver for several years. It used to be such a hassle going downtown from the airport by car or cab. No Uber in Vancouver (that's another story) but taking a car downtown is just a mess. Since the SkyTrain the commute has been a very comfortable and predictable journey. Less than 30 minutes including waiting... More

Airport to downtown, take the Canada Line. Downtown to Metrotown take the Expo Line, Commercial Drive to Coquitlam take the Evergreen Line. A great way to see Vancouver without the pressures of driving. Stay away from the high volumes of rush hour and enjoy. As an extra take the Sea Bus to North Vancouver.

Park the car, put on your walking shoes or hiking boots, take public transit! Once I had my Compass Card I could go anywhere in the Lower Mainland. It was an eight minute ride from downtown Vancouver on the Cambie Line to Marine drive and a 5 minute bus ride to my neighbourhood. That would've been a 30 minute drive... More

It's a lovely and very convenient mode of travel in Vancouver. Being a new to the train, it was a bit complicated for me to understand the zones and tickets information and ended up getting one zone ticket while travelling two zones. But, in the end I had to buy the second zone ticket because I was not able to... More

Vancouver has a great transportation system, but beware the difference in fare if you're transferring from the Expo line or one of the buses to the Canada line, which will take you directly to the airport. You need to upgrade your fare on the CL or use a compass card ($6), then just reload it as needed. Compass cards can... More

You really don't need a car. We got around using the sky train and the buses. And, alot cheaper than renting a car!
