Does the skytrain make it easy?

yes, but knowing for how many people also factors into it. The stop is virtually at Canada Place with less than a block to walk.

SO easy! Really, really easy. Just pack your luggage so that you can manage it without a cart. There are lots of large luggage storage areas on the trains. If you are travelling with the rush, it can be very crowded.

David's got a very valid point. Per person the skytrain is 7.75. A cab will run about $30. So for 4 people or more a cab may still be as cheap and easy as transit.

traveller 47: "or more" will be more expensive by cab because any one cab will only take 4 people. A cab is only cheaper if you are 4 people. It can be more convenient depending on how far from the Waterfront Station you are heading. Generally, Canada Line will get you there a bit faster.

I think a minivan, available at the airport, will take more than 4 people. On weekdays before 6:30 pm the fare is $3.75 + $5.00 surcharge.after 6:30 pm and on weekends/holidays the fare is $2.50 + $5.00 surcharge.

The question without day and time of arrival, number in party and if you need to go further after Canada Place makes it difficult to give good info.

There are six of us with luggage for a cruise and we are going to Canada Place. We arrive at noon, and would like to be at the ship around pm.

Thanks for your help

For six I'd take a stretch limo available in front of the taxi stand. Rates are posted on a building pillar. For fewer folks I'd read the top questions on this page and learn how to avoid the airport transit surtax.

A 6 passenger limo to Canada place looks like it would cost $66 + tax + gratuity. 35 minutes.

If you go to the taxi queue also right outside the building, the queue attendant will arrange a mini van for you, if indeed a mini van will take 6 + luggage for 6. It's the luggage that may not fit in the cab. Approx $35 and 35 minutes
