Great option to get around and get to Granville Island. If you are on foot there are seeral hop off and on spots that makes it super easy. Buy a day pass for multi ride options to save a few dollars.

One of the favoured neighbourhoods for a day out,
Granville Island's packed theatres and art studios,
hobby shops and book stores, restaurants and bars, all
offer a plethora of activities and entertainment
options, leaving no one bored. The highlight of the
area is the Fisherman's Wharf, where the seagulls

visitors, some of who are there to shop the fresh
