Getting around

Public transit to UBC from the Vancouver International Airport is quite good. Take the Canada Line skytrain from the airport to the Oakridge-41st Street station. Then board the west bound 41 bus, labeled UBC, which will take you to the main bus loop on campus. It is then a short walk to the accommodations. See the following for more help:

  • Google Maps directions from YVR airport to UBC. Depending on the time of day you access this page the route given may change; set the departure date and time to when you anticipate arriving in Vancouver for the most relevant route advice.

A taxi from the airport to UBC will cost roughly $40.00.
