Directions to Nelson House

 

From YVR AIRPORT

The Canada Line (LRT) will take you from the airport to downtown in 26 minutes. Please note that most of this trip is tunneled.

You will need to purchase single fare or a Compass Card from the Compass Vending Machine (CVM) which will include an additional $5 airport levy called Addfare. A Single Fare, single use, adult ticket will usually total $9. However, look for cheaper Concession fares if aged 65 or if travelling in the evening or on weekends.

If you think you might like to explore more of the city by transit on your day of arrival, you might also consider a Daypass for all day travel, anywhere. An adult Daypass usually totals $14.75 but again Concession discounts may apply.
When coming in on the Canada Line, we recommend getting off at the Roundhouse-Yaletown station. From there, the same ticket can be used for a bus along Davie Street to within 3 blocks of Nelson House OR you can take a $5 cab ride directly to the bed and breakfast.

By comparison, a taxi all the way from the airport will bring you to our door for about $33CAD and take only twenty minutes - usually the better option after a long day or if carrying heavy luggage.
