Vancouver’s Top 5 public transit sightseeing tours


Another night shift at VANOC’s Main Press Centre, another  frequently-asked-question: Can you recommend a public transit route that will give me a scenic tour of Vancouver?

If time and money allow, there are always the hop-on hop-off city tours offered by Big Bus and Vancouver Trolley, but for a budget-friendly alternative, try these TransLink routes from downtown:

#5 Robson/Davie:

#10 Granville:

  • Build your own circle tour: board the #10 bus at Waterfront Station and travel south through some of Vancouver’s most affluent neighbourhoods to the Marine Drive SkyTrain station and then take the new Canada Line back downtown.

#44 UBC:


  • A 20-minute (return-trip) mini-cruise across Burrard Inlet to Vancouver’s North Shore.

#250 Horseshoe Bay:

  • This bus follows the scenic “low road” (Marine Drive) to the seaside village–and BC Ferries terminal–of Horseshoe Bay where you’ll find a great view of Howe Sound, North America’s southern-most fjord.

Remember: you can buy day-passes or a special 2010 Olympic bus pass that’s good for six weeks from today…
