Station Details

Located directly under Granville Street between West Georgia and Robson streets, the station provides easy access to nearby downtown office buildings as well as shopping centres and the Granville Entertainment District. Although noted as a transfer station with Granville, the two stations are not directly linked underground.

The three entrances connect at the same concourse located below Granville Street. One street level entrance connects from Granville and West Georgia while the other two are underground, connecting Vancouver Centre and Pacific Centre.

During planning, Vancouver City Centre was called Robson[1] and was sometimes referenced as Robson/Granville. This was later changed in 2006 to its current name.[2]

As part of the Canada Line Escalator Enhancement Project, an additional escalator is being added between the platform and the concourse levels to address growing ridership and station congestion. Construction work began in late February 2019.

YVR Check-In

Vancouver City Centre Station has self serve check-in kiosks on the concourse level for Vancouver International Airport flights.
