Vancouver is plenty serious when it says "No Parking". Don't be surprised if you're car is towed, yes towed away, if you leave it in a no parking area. A ticket seems almost a relief. You have been warned!

BC Ferries
Pacific Coach


  • Alaska Air
  • Harbour Air - To Whistler, Powell River, Tofino, Powell River
  • Horizon Air
  • Kenmore Air - To Victoria


    The train ride across the rockies from Banff into Vancouver (or vise-versa) aboard The Canadian, Via Rail's Western Transcontinental, is an awesome introduction to this amazing part of the world. Contact Via for more information. There is also a scenic train from Vancouver to Whistler from BC rail. The main train terminus in Vancouver is on Main Street just up from Georgia in the downtown area.

    There use to be a train, headed by the historic Royal Hudson locomotive, which ran between North Vancouver and Squamish but it was with drawn from service. Indications are that it will be back and will play a part in the 2010 Olympics as well. Have a look at the West Coast Railway Association website for more information.



    Ferries play a large role in connecting the various regions of British Columbia along the coast and into the islands. In the Coast and Mountain region, exploration of the Sechelt/Sunshine coasts requires ferry crossings unless your willing to fly or boat in. BC's ferry system is excellent, if a little pricey (yes, we know its cheap compared to some areas of the world). Check the web site for rates and sailing times. Be forewarned, in high season on the really popular runs, the spaces sell out quickly and you may have to wait for the next sailing or even the one after that - get the picture. You can make reservations online or by phone.
    The BC Ferries will provide you with access to the Gulf Islands (through Tsawwassen), Victoria on Vancouver Island (Tsawwassen), Nanaimo on Vancouver Island (Horseshoe Bay) and the Sunshine Coast (Horseshoe Bay). The quickest route to Pacific Rim National Park on Vancouver Island is through Nanaimo.

    The regional Albion Ferry (car) connects Maple Ridge/Pitt Meadows on the north side of the Fraserto Langley and Surrey on the south. Located east of the Port Mann Bridge. Greater Vancouver Transit

    Local Ferries Vancouver: The Sea Bus a passenger/commuter ferry runs from North Vancouver to the north shore of downtown and the Aquabus runs from the downtown areas south shore to Kitsilano. Of course you can take the bridges instead, but that's not as much fun. Greater Vancouver Transit
