Vancouver is one of the best places to visit in Canada. You will be able to find everything here from the best restaurants in downtown, to whale watching and ski and bike resorts.
With the introduction of new low-cost fares airlines such as Swoop or Flair Air, it is economical now to get to Vancouver through Abbotsford Airport. All the main cities are connected and sometimes tickets from Edmonton or Calgary could be as low as 20 CAD.

You have landed at the airport. So far, your best option would be to get on our shuttle, get to the Scott Road Station and get on the Skytrain. This is cheaper and fastest option of travel. You will end up paying around 25 CAD and you will be passing the traffic on Hwy 1 in Vancouver. That is the busiest part of the Hwy 1 and often there are accidents and delays, so if you would choose other options where you would have to travel through it, it can become quite costly. Skytrain is a local subway system that is built above the ground. You will be in your location without delays and you will be able to plan your trip.
To Vancouver International Airport.
One of the options how you can get to Vancouver Airport will be getting on the Skytrain at Scott Road Station and travel to Waterfront Station (this is the end station of the train in downtown), then transfer to Canada Line (you can ask someone at the station how to get there, as it can be quiet confusing sometimes). From Canada Line, you will have to get on the train that goes to Vancouver International Airport (YVR). You travel time will be about 30 min.
To Tsawwassen Ferry Terminal
Tsawwassen Ferry Terminal connects Lower Mainland to Vancouver Island. It is one of the busiest passenger ports locally. And if you going to Victoria it can be quiet confusing. I will provide all the transportation options that are currently available:
From the Scott Road Station, you can take Bus # 640 to the Westbound Hwy 17A and 60Ave and take the Bus # 601 towards Tsawwassen Ferry Terminal.
You will need to get to the Waterfront Station, transfer to the Canada Line train that goes to the Bridgeport Station. Exit the station and find Bus Bay 2 and take Bus # 601.
Reliable Bus wishes you the best in your travel and please make sure you check your travel information before you go anywhere and book your tickets in advance.
