Getting to Vancouver Venues

Metro Vancouver venues:

  • Access to public transit in Metro Vancouver (the TransLink system) on the day of your event is included in the purchase of your Paralympic event ticket. For transportation routes, schedule information and help with your Paralympic travel planning, visit http://www.travelsmart2010.ca.

  • There is no public parking directly at any Paralympic venue.  The Metro Vancouver public transit system is 100% accessible and is the quickest, most reliable way to go. Access to public transit is included in your Paralympic ticket for the day of the event. If you are coming from outside of Metro Vancouver, consider commercial motorcoach as an option to connect to the transit network or to rideshare/carpool to a suitable transit stop. Find ride matches at ride-share.com.
