I plan on taking the SkyTrain from the convention center to the airport at the end of TBEX. Do you know how long the train ride is from the convention center (or a station near by) to get to the airport. I guess I am not sure whether or not to take a cab (don't know how traffic is in Vancouver) or take the SkyTrain.
I'll be taking the SkyTrain as well. I'm not sure what my exit is yet, but I'm staying near the convention center (so I think that exit should suffice).
The Sky Train takes 25-30 minutes from downtown to YVR.
To get to YVR from downtown, you'll be taking the Canada Line (the newest line built for the Olympics) from Waterfront Station or Vancouver City Centre Station (the two nearest stations to the Convention Centre) .
The Sky Train costs $5 for three zones (downtown to YVR) during peak hours, and $2.50 off peak and on weekends. When coming from the airport into downtown there is a $5 ad fare.
Hope that helps.
Thanks Amber, that information is extremely helpful!
I ended up getting an iphone/ipad app called TransitTimes which shows all the public transportation timings and maps for Vancouver...I think that should be really helpful.
