Helpful Resources for Visiting Vancouver
Vancouver International Airport is the main point of entry into Vancouver.
Abbotsford International Airport is located about 35 miles east in the beautiful Fraser Valley. It is sometimes used as an alternate for Vancouver. If you are planning on spending time exploring the Fraser Valley more than the city, it would be a good choice.
Vancouver has an extensive public transportation network operated by Translink and its subsidiarys. The system consists of Light Rapid Transit, both above and below grade, commonly refered to as SkyTrain, an extensive bus network including some rapid bus routes, and a Seabus passenger ferry that crosses between Waterfront Station in Downtown Vancouver and the Lonsdale Key in North Vancouver.
The Canada Line LRT provides inexpensive 25 minute service from the main terminal at Vancouver International Airport to Downtown Vancouver. It can be a good option if you don’t have too many bags.
