Sky train is a quick, user friendly, clean, low cost means of transportation. I use sky train from the airport to downtown and return several times a year and have never had a problem or felt uncomfortable.

Clean, on time and efficient. The cost makes it an excellent way to get from Vancouver airport to downtown.

This is the best way to get into town from the airport. Very nice and modern transportation. Enough room to put your suitcase. Tickets can be sold at the station.

The sky train it self was pretty clean but kinda small and cramped when it was busy. And it was on time. Way cheaper alternative to cabs.

The train from the excellent Vancouver airport seems to run every 5 - 10 minutes and is very spacious and comfortable. It stops plenty of times, making the short journey to Town a bit slow (30 mins) however at around $8 it's a great service.
