Summer Shuttle from Downtown

Throughout the summer, we are pleased to offer a free shuttle from downtown Vancouver with the purchase of a Mountain Admission ticket. The pickup/drop-off point is at Canada Place.

Public Transit

From Downtown Vancouver, ride the SeaBus to Lonsdale Quay, then take the #236 bus to Grouse Mountain (about a 25-minute ride). 

Coming from Phibbs Exchange, take bus #232. For more transit information, visit translink.ca or call 604.953.3333. 

TIP: If you’re coming by SkyTrain or SeaBus and buying single-trip Compass tickets, buy your return ticket in advance at the SeaBus or SkyTrain station to cover your entire transit trip here and back. Here’s why: On your return trip, if you pay with cash on the bus, that ticket is valid only for bus travel, and you’ll have to buy a separate SeaBus or SkyTrain ticket to complete your trip.

Driving Directions

Follow Georgia Street through Stanley Park and across the Lions Gate Bridge. Take the North Vancouver exit to Marine Drive, then left up Capilano Road for 5 km (3.1 miles). 

OR, from the Ironworkers' Memorial Second Narrows Bridge, follow Highway #1 westbound and take Exit 14 for Capilano Road.

Visiting from the USA

Bring the experience home, America. Americans returning home via land and sea from any international destination need to show a passport or other secure travel document.
