For those of us who travel over from Vancouver Island we can easily hop on a plane thanks to Pacific Coastal Airlines and Harbour Air service to either YVR, and the free shuttle to The Canada Line, or direct to Vancouver harbour and the opposite end of The Canada Line at Waterfront Station.
The Canada Line is not just for commuters slogging to and from work, nor is it only for travelers making their way to and from the airport; it’s a great way to explore our wonderful city! The Canada Line is also a fun way for visitors to spend a day (or more) getting to know Vancouver.
On a bright, cheery day in September, I set out to prove that a day-trip to Vancouver for shopping can actually occur with out ferry angst, driving trauma or parking horror.
Had a lovely meeting with Tourism Richmond yesterday didn’t know how much they were doing to promote the community, happy to have a few stations in Richmond. From their archives I found this great Publication ready story that ties directly into two of our campaigns ‘Shop on the Line’ and ‘Dine on the Line’.
Which brings me to The Canada Line. At just over three years old, it doesn’t have quite the history of New York’s subway system. And with just 16 stations, it’s nowhere near the size. But that’s beside the point. I’ve lived in Richmond all my life – nearly three decades – and in that time I’d go so far as to say that nothing has had a bigger impact on the city than The Canada Line. Indeed, I couldn’t imagine Richmond without it.
For many visitors, Vancouver International Airport provides the first and last impression of British Columbia. Vancouver Airport Authority’s quest to capture the unique beauty of the province, its diverse landscape and rich heritage continues – with you.
Whether you ride The Canada Line for an hour every day or just once in a while, one thing’s for certain: practically everyone has experienced this newest addition to the Lower Mainland’s transit network! The Canada Line whips through Richmond and Vancouver and connects to YVR International Airport, transporting over a hundred thousand people everyday to work, school, concerts, lunch dates, the airport and countless other daily activities. The Canada Line has become an essential part of people’s lives; the passengers and neighbourhoods through which she travels make up the unique characteristics that define life on The Canada Line.
