Best way to go in and out of downtown Vancouver

For me taking Skytrain is the best way to get into and out of downtown Vancouver - considering the cost of parking in downtown. But try to avoid the rush hours when it's packed.

Took the Skytrain from Burrard to Metrotown. Not so user-friendly for non-locals. There were no attendants to be found, and when struggling to learn the fare gate system and to ask questions about stops, I could not find ANYONE to hep me. Even on the way back, we never saw one attendant. Translink seems to have cut labour costs back... More

Now that the Evergreen line extension has been added to the sky train I can get to downtown in about 40 mins from my front door, without ever to have to venture outside my power chair, which is good or else I would fall over. Previously it would have taken me nigh on 2 hours. Being disabled also entitles you... More

Vancouver's SkyTrain is an affordable, reliable transport system. The trains are automated and seem to run every 5 minutes. The transit system fee allows you to travel in any direction for 90 minutes. Effective and reliable......

A ride on the sky train will offer some spectacular views of the North Shore as it leaves the downtown. Once out of Vancouver, most of the ride is above ground and offers great views of the surrounding areas. The sky train is inexpensive and a terrific way to relax and view Greater Vancouver. A must ride when visiting Vancouver... More

We spent 3 days travelling on the sky train into the centre and around. (As we are over 65 the trips (within 1 sector) only cost $1.75 each). You can get day passes as well as paying extra for different sectors. Very clean and regular trains

Skytrain provides Fast and reliable service, especially on rainy or snowy days when it is hard to drive on the road. The skytrain map is simple and easy to understand. However, simple map can also mean that the Vancouver skytrain system has not developed to a point that all the major cities can be reached by just taking the skytrain... More

Compared to other big-city transit, I find the skytrain comfortable, safe, frequent and relatively clean. It doesn't run late at night and the stops can be quite distant from each other but it is a great option for travelling from downtown to some of the further reaches of the Vancouver area.

Very good signage so easy to get to where you are going. Took the line to the terminus station at Lafarge Lake to see the lights on the weekend. The train was the best & easiest way to do this. Well done.
