Vancouver in British Columbia, Canada has a great public transportation for getting around the metro area for those in wheelchairs. One of the wheelchair accessible options in Vancouver is the SkyTrain. The train covers 49.5 kilometers around the region on the Expo and Millennium Lines through 33 stations. SkyTrain is one of the safest rapid transit systems in the world.
Maps and route information are available to help you navigate at each station. Elevators take you to the loading platform where the train arrives, which is not driven by a person but automated. This feature made the ride noticeably smooth, especially the stops. Automatic doors let passengers off and then new ones on. There is a small gap between the platform and train and once inside find whatever open space you feel is comfortable.
