Backpacking with CanadaLine

Backpackers making their way through Canada may be interested to learn that a newly constructed rail transport system could be ferrying them from one place to another.

Travel in Vancouver could be revolutionized by CanadaLine, which will service backpackers aiming to get to and from the airport.

Using such a form of travel may prove far easier for backpakcers attempting to make their way to their hostels.

Andrew Sharp, director general of the International Air Rail Organisation, commented: "Congratulations to CanadaLine, the world's newest airport railway, on a successful and early opening. We are holding our next conference in Vancouver in October, mainly because of CanadaLine.

"We'll be having a look behind the scenes as well as a full day of listening and learning about successful light rail to airports."

Travelers who find themselves in the coastal city of Vancouver may wish to spend some time exploring the main attractions.

These include the shopping district of Granville Island, the North Shore Mountains and English Bay beach.
