Vancouver International Airport (YVR) is 15 km or 9 miles from city centre (Granville and Georgia Streets). That’s only 20 minutes without traffic but often closer to 45 minutes by taxi. Most downtown hotels are close to city centre. See www.yvr.ca for transportation options that include metered taxis ($35), private sedans ($53), and stretch limousines ($61-93) including Aerocar http://aerocar.ca/. Prices include tax but exclude gratuity. Major credit cards are accepted by taxis, sedans and limousines. All are queued outside of the arrival gates. Updated fares are available at www.yvr.ca.
