Getting to Vancouver and the UBC campus
The most convenient way to reach Vancouver by air is through the Vancouver International Airport (YVR). From the airport, it is a 20-25 minute drive to the UBC campus and should cost no more than $30 by taxi. By public transit, it should take roughly an hour and cost $3.75 (weekdays before 6.30pm) or $2.50 (weekends and after 6.30pm weekdays).
It is sometimes significantly cheaper to fly into Seattle (SEA) and take a shuttle to Vancouver but this takes longer (3 hours from SEA to Vancouver) and requires a bit more planning.
