Getting Around Vancouver

TransLink, shorthand for the Greater Vancouver Transportation Authority (604-953-3333; one-way ticket $2.25-$4.50) offers public transit by bus, SkyTrain, commuter train (the West Coast Express), and SeaBus (see below). The standard and double-accordian buses and electric trolleys operate on a three-zone system, though after 6:30pm and on weekends and holidays the one-zone fare applies for all travel. Purchasing tickets onboard requires exact change, and a 7-day pass will cost you $8. After 12am the NightBus runs every half-hour until 3am seven days a week, linking downtown with Greater Vancouver. Should you require a transfer from one mode of transport to another, don’t forget to ask for a transfer ticket from your driver.

The regional public transit system includes the SeaBus, which connects Waterfront Station with Lonsdale Quay across Burrard Inlet. The trip takes fifteen minutes, and ferries leave every fifteen minutes during the day and every half-hour on nights and Sundays. Unlike bus tickets, SeaBus tickets must be purchased at station kiosks before boarding.
