Traveling in Vancouver is covered extensively by the public transportation system, so having a car in Vancouver isn’t necessary. The Translink system provides electric buses, the SeaBus catamaran ferry, and the light-rail SkyTrain. Fares are based on zones traveled – but are the same for buses, SeaBus and SkyTrain. Daypasses are available and highly recommended.

Buses and Trolleys provide transportation throughout the city, about every 12 minutes at bus stops.

Skytrain is a fast, light-rail service from Vancouver to surrounding suburbs. The Expo Line travels from the Waterfront to King George station, and the Millenium Line travels from the Waterfront to Commercial Drive.

Seabus ferries passengers and cyclists on a scenic 12-minute commute between the Waterfront station and Londsdale Quay. Average service runs every 15 minutes, except on Sundays and holidays in which stops are every half-hour.
