Getting around in Vancouver:


Public transport in Vancouver is both efficient and it works very well, with its connected system between buses, SkyTrain (light rail), and Seabus (a boat that connects Vancouver to North Vancouver). The city is divided into three zones and ticket prices increase according to the number of areas travelled. The ticket is sold in 7 Eleven stores throughout the city. If you stay in town for more than a month, it is worth buying the pack of 10 tickets, called FareSaver. Each ticket is valid for 1h30, and you can use more than one means of transport during this time. Public transport is the best way of getting around the city, as taxi fares are expensive.
Another great option is to get around Vancouver by bicycle. The city has over 300 kilometers of bike paths throughtout all areas. Cycling is part of the daily lives of locals so much that buses have a special place for bicycles. You can find places to rent bikes at great prices throughout the city.

 

The Yellow Cab Company Ltd. of Vancouver is an owner-operated company serving the residents, tourists, and business professionals in The City of Vancouver and surrounding areas since 1921. Yellow Cab prides itself as being the leader in the Vancouver taxi service industry in British Columbia. Taxis are yellow, very comfortable and adapted for people with reduced mobility. Getting around town by taxi is mostly suitable for a group of 3-4 people, as they are much more expensive when compared to other means of transport.
