Aquabus

On this February 14th 2010, we took a ride on the Aquabus. The Aquabus is one of the various mode of transportation for Vancouver. They run over through False Creek.

For the Olympics and the increased traffic, they apparently brought out the old boat back to the scheduled service. The "Rainbow Hunter", as seen here at the Yaletown marina dock is usually only out in the summer for the mini-cruise for tourists:

This is not the first time I take the Aquabus, but this is the first time I'm on one of the open platforms (Cyquabus, those used to transport bikes) on this route, with a beautiful spring weather. Further down in the trip, approaching Granville Island, with the Burrard bridge ahead:

It also should be not that the Aquabus is pet friendly, unlike buses and the SkyTrain.
