Transportation

For transportation, biking is the most prominent due to its close proximity to the downtown core and dense population for the area. Especially in neighborhoods like Granville Island, where parking is limited and quite pricy. Next for most popular transportation is biking, bus, and car share. This is because, Fairview is still a bit of a distance from the downtown core and without access to any nearby Skytrains, transportation can be challenging.
