From our hotel (near BC Place Stadium), we were able to utilize Vancouver’s Sky Train to get to our meeting at TransLink (who happen to manage the Sky Train, along with Vancouver’s other public transit systems). We boarded at the Stadium/Chinatown station and rode the Metro Line to Metrotown in Burnaby, a large suburb of Vancouver. According to the TransLink website, the journey took 14 minutes, but many of us took quick catnaps, so we seemed to be there in no time at all! The Metrotown station is adjacent to a shopping mall and several office towers (including the one where the TransLink offices are located). There were also connections to several bus lines from the station.
After our meeting at TransLink, we took the Sky Train back into Vancouver, with Anne getting off along the way to catch an Amtrak train back to Seattle, and made the easy walk back to our hotel. As a bonus, our return Sky Train tickets were valid for 2 hours, allowing us to take a bus down to English Bay to enjoy the sunny afternoon along the water!
