How to save the Airport AddFare of $5 (click here fore details):
Anyone leaves from the airport will need to pay for a surcharge of $5 in addition to regular fares
of $1.75,  $2.50 or $3.75 pending on your age (Concession is 65 and older) and time of travel.  

The following is taken from the Translink website.

"Exemptions
Customers who use prepaid fares such as DayPasses, Monthly FareCards, FareSaver tickets,
West Coast Express weekly and 28-day passes, U-Passes, Employer Passes and Government
Bus Passes are exempt from the Canada Line YVR AddFare. I
f you are at the airport, DayPasses can be purchased at the 7-Eleven or the Pharmasave on
Level 1, Arrivals. DayPasses and FareSavers don't have specific dates for travel, so they can be
purchased in bulk for future travel dates."

You probably want to buy either the Day Pass or the FareSaver tickets.  FareSaver tickets come
in packs of ten and you may not need the entire pack during your stay in Vancouver.  We can
buy the FareSaver tickets you don't need from you at cost.   Please note we don't need the
concession tickets as much so if you are planning on buy the Concession FareSaver and will only
need a few, please email us a few days prior your arrival and I'll let you know whether we'll buy
them from you.   I use the adult concession FareSaver tickets so we'll buy those.  
Taxi or public transit from the airport??:
Taxi is about 20-30 minutes pending on traffic and the average cost is $27.  If you arrive late or
have lots of luggage, then taxi is the way to go.

Public transit is between $1.75 and $2.50 for concession (65 and older) and $2.5 and $3.75 for
regular.  There is an AddFare of $5 on top if you are coming from the airport.  Please see info
below on how to avoid paying the AddFare.
