Vancouver Transport Guide

While 'oot and aboot' in Vancouver, you will have plenty of safe and reliable options to transport you around this great city.

How to get around Vancouver

Vancouver offers many transportation options to get around the city and surrounds. The most widely used mode of transport in Vancouver is by car, so hiring a car is an easy and convenient choice (although you will need to remember to drive on the correct side of the road!). For travellers looking for the cheaper and more adventurous option, there is public transport. All Translink operated services are charged by 90-minute time zones making them very easy on the hip pocket. The bus offers the largest network covering most of the city, making it a very convenient option. Another alternative is the SkyTrain, a largely elevated rapid transit system that connects Downtown Vancouver with the southern and eastern suburbs, which also connects with bus routes. The city has water on 3 sides, so the SeaBus is a great way to see the city and get from Vancouver's downtown to North Vancouver. The False Creekferry is a cute and fun way to travel traffic-free between key spots along False Creek. You'll also find plenty of cabs to flag down for a quick trip or a night out. Vancouver is also very walkable with plenty of cycling routes and popular walks including along the Seawall.
