Skytrain at Above Ground Station, Vancouver

Image from Skytrain activity in Things to do in Downtown Vancouver

A Skytrain at an above ground station waiting for passengers to board.

Vancouver's Skytrain met some unique problems when it was being built. The unyielding city with its preexisting structures did not allow for an above ground system, therefore the Skytrain is in two parts, the downtown core is buried and it moves above ground near Science World and BC Place with a stunning view of the surrounding areas. With its trips out to the boroughs of Burnaby, New Westminster, Surrey and soon to the Airport and Richmond, the Skytrain will continue to be a popular means of travel for thousands of people every day.
