YVR–Airport is a SkyTrain station in Metro Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Station Details

The station is located adjacent to the horseshoe on Grant McConachie Way as it loops around the International and Domestic terminals of Vancouver International Airport. The station is one of three airport stations located on Sea Island. Funding was provided by the Vancouver International Airport Authority for the construction of the three stations at approximately $300 million.

YVR–Airport provides connections to both the International and Domestic terminals across the two pedestrian overpasses stretching over Grant McConachie Way, in addition to providing access to the Short Term Parking lot and airport shuttles.

During planning, YVR–Airport was called YVR 4[1] and YVR[2]. This was later changed in 2006 to its current name[3].

YVR Check-In

YVR–Airport Station has self serve check-in kiosks for Vancouver International Airport flights.

Bus Routes

Airport shuttles pick up/drop off at the lower level segment of Grant McConachie Way. Transit bus service pick up/drop off adjacent to the Domestic Arrivals entrance. YVR–Airport Station is not to be confused with Airport Station, a bus loop located at Russ Baker Way and Miller Road that partially closed in September 2009.

There are no regular transit bus service during the day. When the Canada Line is not running at night, the N10 provides limited service to the airport on select trips. Various HandyDART zones are located along Grant McConachie Way on both the departure and arrival levels. The SkyTrain Bus Bridge stop is located with the airport shuttle bus stops.
