Getting Around Vancouver

There are many easy and convenient ways of getting around Vancouver to explore and sight-see.

Getting Around Vancouver on Public Transit

Public Transit Buses - There are two bus systems in Vancouver Translink and Blue Bus. Translink serves the entire lower mainland but Blue Bus only serves the North and West Vancouver with trips into downtown Vancouver.

The public transit system also includes sky train the mostly above ground light rapid transit system and the sea bus that goes back and forth across the harbour between North Vancouver and downtown Vancouver.

Car Rental - Vancouver is surrounded on three sides by water so a lot of people get around by car. If you are visiting on an extended stay you might consider a car rental.

Ferry-Two ferry systems operate out of Vancouver. They cover 20 routes that'll take you over to Vancouver Island as well as the rest of the Gulf Islands.

Greyhound Bus Travel - For a day trip away from Vancouver try taking a greyhound bus. You can take a greyhound up to Whistler or over to Vancouver Island to Victoria or Nanaimo.

Harbour Flights- Flights between Vancouver and Victoria by float plane.

Limousine - Traveling around Vancouver by limousine is probably the classiest way to travel and there are several companies who are only too happy to pick you and take you wherever you want to go.

Taxi - Getting around Vancouver by cab can get expensive especially if you get caught in rush hour traffic... they charge by the minute.
