CANADA LINE: YVR Terminus


























Some very interesting options. They should include a new ferry terminal as part of a potential plan as well.



And the option with the satellite terminal facility, the people mover should go over (or around) the parking facility and should be directly connected to the RAV Terminus station (with a walkway).



The north-south taxiway, that goes over Grant Machonichie Way and the future Canada Line, is depicted in a few options.

Both sets of customs let me through without having to open them, which I thought was nice. Ahh the days of innocence in international air travel.


By the way, the new train line being built for the winter Olympics, will it connect directly to the Airport?

I've been through it a few times, but for the life of me can't remember much about it,
except for a kind of mountain mural on one wall.

first of all... as you know 1994, nothing much has happened, compared to what happens now after the 9/11

and the train does lead to the International terminal, this train will bring you from the airport to Richmond and Vancouver and Downtown vancouver.

It's not actually meant for the Olympics; rather, it was more of a public transportation project. It will be connected to the airport directly, but will also benefit the huge amount of people who work at the airport.

Why do some people talk about Cambie street as if it was the greatest street ever. Its just a glorified Victoria drive.

^ same thoughts, nothing special about Cambie. the line should've been elevated south of QE Park on the greenway.
