Answer depends on exactly which direction your car rental is.

There is at least one car rental office right in the train station.

Just picking up a car and heading out of town......416 W. Georgia St is the car rental....I will ask if they pick up....it is only a mile away, you would think they would.....but in case they don't

Will be back to Vancouver....LOVE Vancouver...most pedestrian friendly city I have ever been in.......plan to ditch the car when we get back to Vancouver

Hate to mention it but this appears to be a Budget rental. there have been ongoing issues with both Budget downtown and at the airpport. The thread I've tried to link starts in November but carries on.. and note that downtown has had problems as well ( possibly same owner as airport franchise?) anyway you'd be well advised to take dated photos of every square inch of the car before you drive away and on your return.

You can take skytrain from the train station ..you'll see it as you come out of the station and then get off at Granville station and walk back to the rental office.. or get off at Stadium and walk west.

Hope the link works if not I'll do a tiny url.. or just put budget car rental in the vancouver search box and check the April posting

On the above map, balloon A is Hertz car rental and right next to Pacific Central Station.

You could go to Alamo car rental at balloon B. Just to the right of Balloon B you will see the blue icon representing Stadium Station. Not far at all.
