Taxi fare to downtown Vancouver will be about $25 Canadian ($18.50). The trip takes about 30 minutes.

Limojet Gold Express operates a limousine service to the downtown area. Check at the ground transportation desk to book a limousine to your hotel. The fare is around $35 Canadian ($23), so only a little more than a taxi but a much nicer ride.
