There were taxi's waiting right outside. Actually because we were travelling with another couple we got a limo, which was also right outside. There was plenty of room for the 4 of us and all our luggage and it cost less to share the cost of the limo.

I've used the taxi and it was perfect. Ride is at least half an hour to the pier. I forget what the cost was, but it was reasonable from what I recall.

We booked a limo roundtrip at the taxi/limo kisok in the airport on your way outside. It turned out to be less than a cab because of traffic and they picked us at our hotel on time, 4:30 AM for our 7 AM flight home. We loved the extra room too.

take bus 424, airport to transportation center, then take bus 98 to downtown Vancouver, stop at the Waterfront station, you are then just round the corner from Canada Place (cruiseship terminal), maybe 3 minutes walk!!!

Cost $2.25 each, travel time approx 25-35 minutes!

Try the Airporter to/from the cruise terminal and most hotels
in downtown Vancouver. The bus ride could be up 90 min due to construction
of a sub way from the airport to downtown.
