Port Moody  is a city in the Vancouver eastern suburbs of British Columbia, Canada. Set on the eastern end of the Burrard Inlet, it has some fine waterfront property. It's primarily a residential community, just close enough to commute to Vancouver for work. Recent high-rise developments on the water, such as NewPort Village, have also spurred retail and entertainment districts.
Several buses from the Translink regional transit system serve the Port Moody area. The 97 B-Line is a very useful bus; it runs from the Lougheed Town Centre in Burnaby to the Coquitlam Centre bus terminal roughly every ten minutes on weekdays, covering the whole of St. John's Street. Most areas in Port Moody aren't more than a ten-minute walk from the closest 97 B-Line stop to the destination. The #160 bus runs through Port Moody, providing a direct route to downtown Vancouver.
The nearest SkyTrain station is Lougheed Town Centre. Take the 97 B-Line (faster) or the C24 into Port Moody.
St. John's Street is the main street in, out and through Port Moody. Several community buses get away from St. John's Street into the surrounding neighbourhoods. The C25 bus serves Ioco. The C27 serves the Heritage Mountain area and parts of Westwood Plateau (Coquitlam), running from Port Moody station to Coquitlam station. The C28 provides similar service to the C27, except with more focus on the Westwood Plateau area.
Walk along the Shoreline Trail, which runs from Rocky Point to behind the Port Moody Rec Centre (across from Newport Village). It runs along the Burrard Inlet and is very scenic.
There are many stores along St. John's Street. There is also shopping in Newport Village, and Suter Brooke across from it. There's like, three or four Starbucks, man! Coquitlam Centre shopping mall is a seven minute bus-ride away, containing 200 stores.
Popular pubs/bars include St. James' Well in Newport Village, The Point on St. John's Street, and The Golden Spike, also on St. John's.
