From the Vancouver International Airport

The Port of Vancouver is 15-30 min. (9 mi./14.5 km.) north of the airport. You have many options: Disney ground transfer, SkyTrain, shuttle van, car service, taxi, or rental car.

Disney Ground Transfer—Available to/from the airport, cruise terminal, and pre- or post-cruise hotels. Just add it onto your cruise reservation. For more details, see page 80. For travelers to/from the US going directly between the cruise terminal and airport, transfers have the unique benefit of US Direct service—expedited customs procedures, baggage handling direct from aircraft to ship, and on-board airline check-in for most US-bound airlines.

SkyTrain—The Vancouver metro area has excellent rail, bus, and ferry service under the umbrella of Translink (http://www.translink.ca, 604-953-3333). The Canada Line SkyTrain route, completed in 2009, provides direct service from YVR to Canada Place, with the station right outside the air terminal. Many hotels are within several blocks of a Canada Line stop. Fares are paid by zone, and a ticket can be used to transfer to any combination of SkyTrain routes, city buses, and the SeaBus ferry. The modern Canada Line stations (elevated and subway) have automated fare machines, and even airline check-in kiosks. A regular adult fare between airport and pier is $7.75, and a DayPass saves a lot if you’re staying in town. Hold onto your tickets. While there’s no turnstile (honor system), you must show your ticket if asked.

Shuttle Van—Aeroshuttle (http://aeroshuttleyvr.ca, 877-921-9021) provides scheduled, walk-up van service to many Vancouver hotels, including those at Canada Place. No reservations are taken; pay with cash or credit card. Vans are found right at the exit of the air terminal. Service runs from approximately 7:30 am until 8:00 pm. Fares are $25 roundtrip for adults, $15 ages 2-12, plus tax.

Sedan, Town Car, or Limo—Aerocar (http://www.aerocar.ca, 888-821-0021) provides walk-up service in a wide range of vehicles at YVR. One-way, walk-up sedan service is $64 to Canada Place, $53 to other downtown locations (plus tax). Call to book cruise terminal and hotel pick-ups. Meet and Greet service, limos, large-capacity vehicles, and other services are available at higher rates.

Taking a Taxi—Taxis are available as you exit the airport terminal. Cabs are metered, and rates average $31-$35 to downtown Vancouver and Canada Place.

Rental Car—Many rental agencies have facilities at the airport and near Canada Place. However, we don’t recommend a rental except in support of a pre- or post-cruise stay. Other alternatives are much more practical for direct airport-to-cruise transportation.

Driving directions from YVR Airport: Exit the airport on Grant McConachie Way. Merge onto Marine Drive in the direction of Granville St./BC 99. Head north on Granville Street/BC 99, which becomes Seymour St. downtown. Take Seymour to its end at Cordova St., turn left, go two blocks to Howe St., turn right, and Canada Place is at the end of the block.

Long-term cruise parking at the cruise terminal is available from VinciPark (http://www.vinciparkcanadaplace.ca, 866-856-8080) at $26 per day, but availability is limited. A reservation form is available at their website.

    RE: Photo Slice for Getting to Canada Place Terminal

    The link you have for the shuttle service is the same for the Sedan/Town Car service (i.e. they both go to the same website). Here's a link to their latest rate card: http://aerocar.ca/rates/flat-rates/.
