Default vancouver transit strike

will spend a few days in vancouver after the cruise in the
downtown area... just assumed we would take the bus
around town. okay maybe a bad assumption. so far, opted
not to get a rental car. will we be able to get around to enough
places by just walking?

We are leaving for Vancouver tomorrow for our pre-cruise stay. It is my understanding that they still have the double decker tour buses and the trolley running. You can also take a taxi if needed.

Good Luck and enjoy.

The situation remains the same - no city buses or seabus - but the skytrain, trolley and double decker 'hop on and off" services are running. The airporter bus is running as are the buses to West Vancouver. There were more protests today. The new provincial government has been holding meetings with both sides this week. We hope it is resolved soon!!!!
