YVR–Airport station is the outbound terminus station of the Airport branch of the SkyTrain's Canada Line in Richmond, British Columbia, Canada. The metro station serves both the domestic and international terminals of Vancouver International Airport (YVR), located on Sea Island, and provides the only direct, transfer-free public transit connection between Downtown Vancouver and the airport. The Canada Line's other outbound terminus station is Richmond–Brighouse.

Trains depart every 6–7 minutes during midday and weekday peak service, every 12 minutes in the early morning and evening, and every 20 minutes in late evening.[2] The first train leaves for Waterfront at 5:10 AM; the last, at 12:57 AM.[2]

Like Richmond–Brighouse station, YVR–Airport only has a single track. However, this is sufficient for a terminus station with YVR–Airport's frequency of service.

Ticket Concourse


The Vancouver International Airport Authority (YVR) contributed up to $300 million toward the airport branch of the Canada Line, which includes YVR–Airport station.[3]
