The YVR Airport Skytrain is the quickest way to get from Vancouver International Airport to Broadway & Cambie with a travel time of only 20 minutes. You can purchase a ticket at the machines on the station platforms. The cost will be either $7.50 or $8.50 depending on the time of day and day of the week you are purchasing. You will be looking to purchase either a two-zone or all-zone ticket. The first zone counts for Richmond and the second zone counts for Vancouver. Your ticket lasts for 90 minutes after your purchase so please keep it on you and use it for any other transit you would like to do in either zone during that time. The entrance to the Skytrain is located above the covered parking garage at the airport. There are 2 different ways to find the entrance:
Domestic Arrivals (flights arriving from within Canada) – Go up to level 3, then walk towards the International Terminal. Before you get there, you will come to the Link Building which is situated between the domestic and international terminals. Look for the signs that say “Canada Line” and proceed up the escalator (or elevator) to level 4 where there is a covered walkway to the Skytrain Station.
International Arrivals (flights arriving from USA and International) – Make your way up to level 3 and then outside where you will see the covered walkway across the street to the Canada Line Station (Note: If it’s raining heavily, you may prefer to stay indoors and walk an extra couple minutes to the Link Building and access the Skytrain there as describe above in Domestic arrivals).
