Shared van to airport

My husband will be in Vancouver soon. Shared shuttle service to the Vancouver International airport seems like the best option, short of a cab, to get my husband to the airport with 2 heavy bags. Trying to maneuver them on public transport may be very difficult.

I have not found a website yet for a van service, similar to Super Shuttle, available in some cities.

Any suggestions?

Can't say I've seen this here. Possibly because transit is so easy and direct. A cab will be about $35 from most downtown hotels.

there used to be one but when Canada line came in no one was using it. Taking a cab is the easiest, next best would be aerocar.ca which would be a towncar service in the $45 range.

Expect No Help of Any Kind especially if the bags look heavy and of course any tip should reflect the 'service' or lack thereof.

No shared van service here, due to the start up of Canada Line, as mentioned. How heavy is heavy? If the luggage is heavy enough to create a struggle or an inconvenience, a taxi would be best. $35-40 to the airport. The airport luggage carts are free. The taxi just pulls up to the curb outside the departures level of whichever terminal you need. I'm not sure how many carts are left hanging around at the curb, some I would guess.
