VANCOUVER TRANSPORT - VANCOUVER SKYTRAIN - TAXIS

Vancouver TransportVancouver Transport – The city of Vancouver has an integrated public transport system. There are electric buses available downtown, as well as standard buses available throughout the city. City buses run frequently and can get you most places in the city quickly, inexpensively and conveniently. The city buses are linked to both the SeaBus and the SkyTrain.

The Vancouver SkyTrain is a fully computerized light-rail system that runs from Waterfront Station to King George Station. There is also a SeaBus or AquaBus available for those who want to go to Granville Island, and other parts of Vancouver separated from the mainland.

Vancouver Taxi TransportVancouver Taxis are reliable, although a bit pricey. They can be hailed by phone or through the hotel front desk. They are metered based on the distance traveled, and cost between $22-$27 from the airport to downtown Vancouver.

Vancouver also has a number of transportation options involving ferries and boats, since the city is surrounded on three sides by water. Both locals and visitors find that much of the boat transportation is fun even if you have no particular destination.

Vancouver Train StationThe AmTrak also offers passenger service between Vancouver and many destinations in the United States. The route between Seattle and Vancouver is one of the company's most popular. There is one round trip train each day.
