Default taxi's In Vancover to the Pier

We have a hotel booked in Vancover the day before the cruise and I was wondering how much the taxi fare will be from the hotel (which is located in the Richmond area near the airport) to the ship. There will be 8 of us. Thank you for any info.

WE took a taxo directly from the airport to the pier and the fare was around $20 US plus a tip. The ride was about half an hour depending on traffic.

There is a bus service that goes from the airport into downtown, stopping at all the hotels, of which there are several near the cruise dock. It's a bit cheaper than a taxi. You can buy a round trip ticket when you arrive at the airport.

It may be cheaper to taxi with 8 people, remember the taxi cost is per car( you will need two) and the bus fee is per person. Check out "Greyline" that is the bus company that services the hotels by the airport . Go online and then phone them for a quote.
Also 8 people have a lot of luggage, you may need even mor e then 2 taxis, so if that is the case take the bus, they take unlimilted luggage(ok not unlimited but lots, )
