Translink provides city transit for tourists and residents seven days a week via buses, SkyTrain (a rapid transit system) and SeaBus.
Operating every few minutes throughout the day, SkyTrain travels between downtown Vancouver and the suburbs with links to bus service at almost all stations. The Canada Line (part of the SkyTrain automated rapid transit system) provides service between downtown Vancouver, YVR (Vancouver International Airport) and Richmond.
One of the easiest (and most scenic) ways to get to Vancouver from North Vancouver is aboard the passenger-only SeaBus, which crosses the Burrard Inlet in about 12 minutes.
From Monday to Friday, a pleasant ride between Mission and downtown Vancouver (westbound in the early morning and eastbound in the later afternoon) is aboard the West Coast Express commuter train.
