Vancouver International Airport is 12 kilometres from Downtown Vancouver. International and domestic terminals are served by the YVR-Airport station, which is part of the Canada Line. Canada Line consists of three Skytrain lines that serve metro Vancouver. Trains leave every 7 minutes during peak travel hours and every 15 minutes for non-peak travel times. They run from 5:00 am to 1:00 am and take 26 minutes to reach Vancouver City Centre station. The fare is $9 CAD (discounts available for seniors and children).
The N10 night bus connects domestic and international terminals to Richmond and Downtown Vancouver. Airport south terminals are served by the C92 bus, which connects to the Canada Line at Bridgeport Station.
It will take around 25 to 30 minutes to reach downtown with a $35 CAD flat fee (does not include gratuity).
Private and Rental Cars
Private sedans and limousines are an option, but range from $45 CAD to as much as $81 CAD for the ride and must be arranged ahead of time. You can also find great bargains for car rentals with momondo.
