Options for getting from airport (YVR) to downtown Vancouver

My husband and I are taking a trip to Vancouver in early July and are wondering what options there are to get from YVR to downtown Vancouver that are both inexpensive and relatively quick (train, cab, other options). We will be renting a car out of downtown after a couple of days of exploring the city area to save on the airport fees, so need to get from the airport to downtown. Any advice you can give would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!

The second paragraph of the webpage mentions the Light Rail which is what I use to go downtown from airport. It is currently $7.50 a person and takes about 25 minutes, much faster than taxi. The three stops downtown are walkable between them, so it would be unusual to need more, if you are reasonably mobile.

PMahdis....it's always a good idea to have a look at the date of the Original Post. It was last June and the travel was completed last July. So....you are about 10 months after the fact.
