Vancouver Transportation Strike
Alaska-bound cruisers spending time in Vancouver should know that the city is entering its third month of a transportation strike -- and plan accordingly. The strike only involves the public bus system, which primarily is affecting commuters and, perhaps, the more adventurous traveler, but, as a result, empty taxis can be hard to come by at rush hour.

Those for whom Vancouver is a port of embarkation (and/or debarkation) and who are staying overnight should check to see if their hotel offers a shuttle service; many will provide drop-off though not all will pick you up again. Need to get to the airport? The airport bus system is unaffected by the strike though one contact there pointed out that for two or more travelers, taxis are actually cheaper.
