BC TRANSIT includes

Bus & Trolley System criss-crosses Vancouver and covers over 1800 square kilometres. Many routes connect directly with SkyTrain and SeaBus right at the stations.
99 B-Line a great way to travel during both peak and off-peak hours! Buzzing all day, Monday to Saturday, between Lougheed Mall and UBC in about an hour.

Skytrain runs diagonally from the downtown Sea Bus terminal through New Westminster and over the Fraser River into Surrey. Trains run approximately every 5 minutes, with the entire line being travelled in about 35 minutes. Tickets are sold by vending machines at each of its stations.
Seabus is a double ended catamaran connecting North Vancouver to Downtown. A one way trip takes about 12 minutes. Seats 400.
West Coast Express links Mission and downtown Vancouver with trains westbound from Mission in the early morning and eastbound from downtown Vancouver in the late afternoon.  
For people who don't want to drive their car all the way into work, take advantage of commuting the Park & Ride way or do it the Bike & Ride way by leaving your car at home and biking at least part way to work.
