transoprtation from horsheshoe to to richomond

What is the best way to transport 4 adults 3 children from horseshoe bay to a hotel in Richmond? The taxi fare estimator said it would be $75 to $80 for a regular vehicle, but I am guessing we will need a van. Surely there must be other options?

Horseshoe Bay Ferry Terminal is outside of the Skytrain route. Its very far from Richmond and any alternative would be very inconvenient and still involve taxi travel. if you are coming from Vancouver Island can you ferry to the Tsawassen terminal instead? I think it may be closer to Richmond.

Take the #257 Vancouver Express bus from outside the ferry ticket booth at Horseshoe Bay to Vancouver City Centre Station at Granville and Georgia Streets. Take the stairs or elevator down to the platform for either of the two trains (Brighouse or YVR). Get off at Bridgeport Station. From here you can arrange for the hotel shuttle to pick you up.

Don't know your day or the age of the kids, so look on the following webpage from the Translink site. You will need to pay a 2 zone fare which becomes a 1 zone fare on weekends, exact fare in coins. It will take about an hour and 15 minutes.

Do not go to Horseshoe Bay would be my first suggestion. If you are coming from Nanaimo, then you might look at the crossing from Duke Point to Tsawwassen instead. This makes getting to Richmond easier. If you are coming from Langdale, then you are stuck with a long haul through town as per Mufti's suggestion.

A taxi for 20 min, $30 would be the best way to get to Duke Point ferry terminal. From Tsawwassen, the #620 bus to Bridgeport Station, already referenced above. A 1 zone fare. Or a 30 min, $35 taxi ride. You would need two taxis for each end of the journey.
