Weather in Vancouver

Good weather is one of the reasons to visit Vancouver; it is not as cold as you might think. Having such a mild climate compared to the rest of Canada means year-round business and leisure options. If you travel in winter, pack warm, waterproof clothing.

Local Transport

Take the SkyTrain or SeaBus to get to Vancouver’s top attractions. Here at the Transit website, you’ll find timetables, prices, and planning tools to help you get around Vancouver.

There are 3 lines; the main one is the Canada Line, connecting the City Centre and Vancouver International Airport. You can buy a Skytrain DayPass or a single ticket (valid for 90 minutes so you can transfer as many times as you want within that period).  

If you plan to go south to the downtown peninsula, you can take a ferry. Companies are operating small passenger ferries to cross back and forth over False Creek, or you can do a bit of tourism and take a short sightseeing cruise.
