The Skytrain rapid transit system was built as a showcase for the 1986 World Expo; a theme centered on the idea of transportation, and has evolved over the last few decades to accommodate the needs of the city.
Using both a buried and a monorail-like system, it is one of the safest means of travel, and with three main lines - the Expo Line, Millennium Line and Canada Line connecting the airport to the downtown core - it is fast becoming the easiest means of transit in the Greater Vancouver Region.
With its connection to the Seabus, the ability to travel long distances with ease and to many landmarks is more accessible to tourists and locals within and around the city.
With many prime destinations along the route such as Commercial Drive, Metrotown, Downtown, the Waterfront (Canada Place) and Science World, it is one of the premiere transit methods to travel Vancouver.
With unbeatable city views on the raised tracks and a view of the cityscape below, the Skytrain is a simple and interesting way to observe the city as well as efficiently get to many different locations.
