Airport transfer from YVR to Downtown with children

Apologies if this is a duplicate post but couldn't find anything similar.

We staying in Vancouver over Xmas and would appreciate tips on how best to get from the YVR to Downtown either by limo or SUV with children.

We need to find a pre-bookable service that can provide child seats for our 2 daughters, 3 years old and 1 year old.

Many thanks in advance!

Taxis are exempt from the provincial laws governing infant restraints, child restraints or booster seats. This could mean a limousine "town car" as well.

You would be able to carry your own child seats and install them in a rental car here. I have no idea if a taxi has the hardware installed to accept a child seat.

<<"taxi" means a motor vehicle having a seating capacity of not more than 10 persons which, with its driver, is operated or plies for hire by members of the public. >>

There is no airport shuttle because Canada Line is now the quick train into downtown Vancouver.

For comfort, look on the YVR website, under "Getting to and from YVR" for "Sedans and Limos."

aerocar.ca

is the onsite limo provider at YVR and they are very reliable. You can ask them to have some car seats available.

A pub with or without your children? In BC all pub patrons must be 19 years of age to enter.

Without your kids, I'd take a wee hike over to the Gastown area and go to the Irish Heather and the Alibi Room. Both have great craft beer selection. Short taxi ride away. Have a look at the Irish Heather website for more ideas on pubs/gastropubs and restaurants.

With your kids you will need to find a restaurant or pub style restaurant and others will come on and suggestions options for you (or the concierge at the Sutton can).
