We used this everyday, so easy to use and can get to lots of places, that is right at the station or just a short walk. Buying tickets are easy, and don't have to wait too long. Fantastic public transport.

The sky train system is really well organized, and the experience is awesone. Kids really enjoyed the view & ride. Good if you need to go places but don't have a car
