Sky Train from Pacific Central Station to YVR

I have read the posts stating how easy it is to take the Sky Train from Pacific Central Station (across the street) to YVR, I am curious if this is really doable with luggage. We'll each have a large spinner + carry-on attached to the top of the spinner and a backpack. Wondering if the cost of the taxi is more reasonable considering the luggage.

A taxi would take about 40 minutes and $40 to the airport. Taxis are queued outside the front door.

To take public transit, you would walk about 200 metres to the Main St skytrain station, take the temporary Train2Main special skytrain train (just for the summer as some repair? renovation? work is needed in part of the station) down to Waterfront Station. Then you would walk about 300 metres to the Canada Line platform for the train to the Airport. Total about 45-50 minutes and either $2.75 or $4 each for the fare.

IMO, you've got a fair bit of luggage, but you may have a system for lugging it around. Canada Line carriages are spacious and built for luggage, the skytrain line is built for commuters, there is less room for luggage but it's doable. There are elevators everywhere and everything is designed for rolling stock, i.e. wheelchairs, scooters, walkers and luggage.

Yes it's important to note that elevators are easily available-no need to perch precariously on escalators or stomp up & down stairs.
