“Excellent service from airport to downtown hotel.”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

We used this for the first time. We were staying two nights in downtown Vancouver and used this train vs a taxi. $18 for two of us one way and 25 minutes to a stop a short walk underground to our hotel. Easy even with 2 suitcases and my wife is visually impaired. Why Toronto cannot figure this out is beyond me--Vancouver has a nice easy way for visitors to get to the heart of their city.

“Slick!”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

Took the Canada Line from YVR to the downtown station recently. Terrific! Convenient, clean, inexpensive (compared to cabs), put us 4 blocks from our hotel without getting stuck in traffic - always a probability in Vancouver!
If you go the reverse to YVR, there are kiosks immediately as you get off that will print your boarding pass - slick!

“EXCELLENT TRANSPORTATION”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

2 blocks away from our hotel. Very nice to have for a visitor. We visited the Science Building and the train was very convenient way to take from the hotel where we stayed at. From Chinatown to Science building was only one ride. Great experience for my 7 year old son!

“Travel convenience”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

What a perk for the traveler without a car. The station nearest my hotel was only 4-5 blocks away. It cost less than $5 and took only 30-35 mintues to get to the airport.

“Quick & Cost effective”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

After a long flight from Toronto, we were apprehensive about travel options on a weekend. The Canada Line was barely a 100 metres from baggage claim, ticketing was a breeze, and we two could travel to the Waterfront terminus with our luggage for about 15$ (about half the cost for an airport shuttle, and a quarter that of a taxi), and super quick too (about 20 mins).

The Cruise terminals are a short walk away from the terminus (say about 200 metres), and this is a very clean, quick and inexpensive option to get there from the airport.

Kudos to all responsible for this service.
