Gorgeously situated between the mountains and the coast, Vancouver is a diverse international city that has a lively downtown, terrific neighborhoods, easily accessible natural playgrounds all year round, and a thriving economy. Improvements recently made to the city to accommodate the Olympics made it even more appealing – it’s Canada’s most walkable city.
Vancouver is served by TransLink, the extensive bus network, SkyTrain, the light rail system, and on the water, by a network of ferries. Burnaby, Richmond, and Surrey, in the south east have SkyTrain service, making them commuter friendly if you work downtown, and bus service runs to North or West Vancouver. The Pacific Northwest weather means easy biking is seasonal, but Vancouver is adding more and more bike lanes for those who chose to bike.
Most errands can be accomplished on foot.
