Getting Around
Mobi Bike share location. Can rent bikes. https://www.mobibikes.ca for more information. Bicycling from the house to downtown is quite the downhill which means it will be quite the uphill climb on the way back. Mobi allows you to bike downtown and leave the bike there while finding another way of getting back home like the bus if the hill is too steep to climb:)

#3 bus heads north to downtown. This goes all the way to Waterfront station. PLEASE NOTE: This bus passes right through the downtown east side (near Main and Hastings) where which many of Vancouver's homeless reside. The area is safe but the sight can startle many visitors as the city and country's inability to improve the homeless situation in Vancouver remains a black mark on the city.
