Vancouver City Centre Station is a SkyTrain station on the Canada Line in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Location[edit]

Construction progresses at Granville and Georgia Streets outside Sears.

Vancouver City Centre Station is located on Granville Street, between West Georgia Street and Robson Street in Downtown Vancouver. The station serves the shopping and entertainment districts along Granville and Robson streets, and the office and shopping complexes of Pacific Centre and Vancouver Centre.

The station is also within walking distance of such amenities as Robson Square (home of the Vancouver Art Gallery, the Provincial Court of British Columbia, and a UBC satellite campus), the Orpheum Theatre, Vancouver Library Square, TD Tower, Scotia Tower and the HSBC Canada Building.

Services[edit]

The station is located within short walking distance of bus stops for bus services throughout Vancouver (especially the trolleybus services on Granville Mall) and to the North Shore. There are underground connections between Vancouver City Centre Station and both Pacific Centre and Vancouver Centre. Passengers are able to transfer between the Canada Line and the Expo and Millennium Lines (the latter two serving Granville Station) by walking through Pacific Centre or Vancouver Centre and The Bay department store, although the only direct transfer point is at Waterfront Station.
