Getting to know the roads of Vancouver

Every city has different road rules, so here’s a handy guide to navigating your way around this coastal seaport:
  • As the most densely populated city in Canada, there are plenty of people on the roads. Courteous drivers are in abundance, but take your time and stay within the speed limit.
  • Downtown Vancouver is full of one-way lanes, with restricted turning.
  • The Port Mann Bridge over the Fraser River is a toll bridge, so check with your hire company about paying it.
  • Don’t jump red lights – there are traffic cameras stationed all over Vancouver.
  • Parking in the CBD can be very difficult and time-consuming. Maybe park up the car rental and use public transport.

Vancouver International Airport Information

Vancouver International Airport (IATA Code: YVR), Canada's second busiest airport, can be found on Sea Island in Richmond, British Columbia, Canada. It is about 12km from downtown Vancouver, and there is a Rail Rapid Transit Line from city to airport. It has won the Skytrax 'Best North American Airport' award twice, and is one of the 8 canadian airports with US border preclearance facilities. Due to the location of Vancouver on the west coast, Vancouver Airport is the major gateway between Canada and Asia.

The city of Vancouver purchased land on Sea Island for Aviation purposes in 1929 after Charles Lindbergh refused to include Vancouver in his North American Tour because there was no proper airport. During World War 2 the airport was leased to the government and was a training facility for the Royal Canadian Air Force. The current terminal was completed in 1968, and since then it has been expanded into Domestic and International terminals.
