    Love the Skytrain, it gets bad press but when it works and it works most of the time, it is a really fast way to get to Vancouver. Was sad to see the one hit by the tree yesterday.

  20. LisaMonday, August 31st, 2015 — 2:24pm PDT

    Canada Line, husband takes it to work every day. Way faster than driving, even on the weekends.

    I love the skytrain!! I’ve always lived close to a station and use it to get everywhere..I have fond memories of taking it when it was first built to expo ’86, and to go so many other places. Now I use it every day to get wherever I need to go!

    Still prefer to ride on the Canada Line…much cleaner and convenient.

  55. LannyMonday, August 31st, 2015 — 11:56pm PDT

    The Canada Line is by far the best way to get you there.

  56. AlisonTuesday, September 1st, 2015 — 7:32am PDT

  60. ShaunaTuesday, September 1st, 2015 — 8:23am PDT

    Canada line!

  61. MichelleTuesday, September 1st, 2015 — 8:25am PDT

    I think the form of the question contributes to problems in discussing urban mobility.
    My favourite form of transit is fixed route with non-miniscule stop spacing, frequent all-day service, and capacity that doesn’t compromise the effective frequency. (e.g. a full bus passing by every 5 minutes for more than 20 minutes before you get one you can board, sardine-style, does not provide frequent service for all customers, but that’s not due to the fact that it is a bus.)

  62. daliTuesday, September 1st, 2015 — 8:25am PDT

    skytrain canada line for the win

  63. Peter ConroyTuesday, September 1st, 2015 — 8:46am PDT

    bus just because they take me so far around the city

  64. michael hTuesday, September 1st, 2015 — 8:54am PDT

    I love the Canadaline! It makes my commute to work so easy!

  65. Lisa GTuesday, September 1st, 2015 — 9:17am PDT

    I work two jobs in two different cities from where I live….this means I ride the bus, the Canada line and the expo/millennium lines! out of them all, I must say the Original expo line is my fav – you are above ground and get to see all of the magnificent mountains, waterways and bridges:)

  66. BrendaTuesday, September 1st, 2015 — 9:23am PDT


  67. CliffTuesday, September 1st, 2015 — 9:23am PDT

    the canada line!

  72. Ruby BBTuesday, September 1st, 2015 — 1:22pm PDT

    I enjoy riding the sky train. Or the Express bus from the FV.

  73. Neil GuerreroTuesday, September 1st, 2015 — 2:01pm PDT

    Skytrain all the way!

  74. ACTuesday, September 1st, 2015 — 2:02pm PDT

    Canada Line rocks for an easy to-and-from YVR!

  75. Lucie BTuesday, September 1st, 2015 — 2:29pm PDT

    I love all forms of transit, but the Skytrain wins for being the quickest. I do love the bus in the theory, but in practice it is problematic (as Michelle at 8:25 described).

  76. TracyTuesday, September 1st, 2015 — 2:57pm PDT

    I love the #25 bus route

  77. Dayna WilsonTuesday, September 1st, 2015 — 3:25pm PDT

  89. MelissaWednesday, September 2nd, 2015 — 8:52am PDT

    I love taking the sea bus. Great views, and it’s so relaxing!

  90. Sonya TWednesday, September 2nd, 2015 — 9:13am PDT

    Fave by far is always the Seabus, but as I no longer live in North Van, I gotta say I love taking the little shuttle buses all around my current city of Langley. It’s so gorgeous, almost like a cute little tour. My 6-year-old is obsessed with Translink and everything that comes with it (trains, buses, boats, oh my!) I’m kinda entering for him <3

  91. JohnWednesday, September 2nd, 2015 — 9:24am PDT

    Seabus has a great view but I love Skytrain because it is quick and efficient.

  92. Carlos TWednesday, September 2nd, 2015 — 9:49am PDT

    Canada Line for me any day! Go to the airport, numerous malls including the new McArthur Glen outlets, and of course, work. #tranlink #ilovetransit

  93. Connie HouseWednesday, September 2nd, 2015 — 9:57am PDT

    New to Vancouver and enjoying the transit system. Buses and trains are clean and the service is great. Favourite route is the 99 Express down Broadway. Very fast and convient.

  94. Debra KWednesday, September 2nd, 2015 — 10:35am PDT

    99B line!

  95. Tara @ Gypsy ShutterbugWednesday, September 2nd, 2015 — 1:12pm PDT

    The Seabus because I can pretend I am on a cruise..or that I’m a pirate. Depends on the day.

  96. JoyceWednesday, September 2nd, 2015 — 1:14pm PDT

    You can always count on the 99 B-line!

  97. LisaWednesday, September 2nd, 2015 — 2:22pm PDT

    I’m an everyday user of the M-Line. Quicker than driving, never too crowded, and I get to catch up on emails and Twitter news on my commute.

  98. HarpreetWednesday, September 2nd, 2015 — 2:23pm PDT

    Taking the sea bus is always fun and the Canada Line is always so clean!

  99. Alexandra BestWednesday, September 2nd, 2015 — 2:24pm PDT

    The 160 and the 99bline are my buses, every day

  100. Scott MoneyWednesday, September 2nd, 2015 — 2:24pm PDT

    I’m all about the Canada Line, best one in the city. Never breaks down, unlike the pesky M and E lines.

  101. BryceWednesday, September 2nd, 2015 — 2:49pm PDT
