Posted onto Vancouver Reddit on Thursday, ryano357 remarked how, "I visited Vancouver this summer, up from Washington, and I made some pixel art of the Skytrain!" By Friday it had been up voted a whopping 2,737 times and had 107 comments. 

A number of people remarked that they loved seeing the artistic rendering of the transit system, and a couple wished it was a video game. However, one cheeky commenter quipped, "Blue sky, lol."

The poster also shared the video to their Instagram account, captioning, "Public transit is beautiful, still waiting on a super train from Vancouver to Portland. I guess Vancouver's Sky train will do for now."

A highlight of Expo '86, Vancouver's SkyTrain opened on Dec. 11, 1985, offering free service for the first eight days. As such, the transportation system turned 34 on Wednesday
