Travel Information

By Air

There are direct flights to Vancouver International Airport (YVR) from more than 40 international airports. [Note though that travelers from the USA may find it more economical to fly in to Seattle/Tacoma International Airport (SEA) and rent a car for the 3-hour drive.]

Those attending the International Cyclotrons Conference beforehand should consult the CYC’13 Travel page for information on getting to the Conference hotel.


Getting to TRIUMF House

TRIUMF House is located on the UBC campus about 2 km north of TRIUMF at the intersection of Wesbrook Mall with Thunderbird Blvd.

From the Airport the simplest way to reach it is by taxi (about $35).

An alternative using the Vancouver Area Transit System (Translink)  is to take the Canada Line (light rapid transit) to the Oakridge-41st Avenue station and transfer to the #41 bus, getting off at the Thunderbird Blvd stop.  A single ticket will take you right through and costs $9 (including a $5 surcharge for travelling from the Airport). The surcharge may be avoided by using a Faresaver ticket, obtainable in books of 10 at $21from the Pharmasave or 7-11 stores on Level 1 (basement) of the Domestic Terminal.

Faresaver tickets will also be useful for commuting between TRIUMF House and TRIUMF (the regular one-zone transit fare is $2.75, and exact change is required). In the UBC Village they can be obtained from the University Pharmacy or Shoppers’ Drug Mart (at 5754 and 5950 University Boulevard respectively).
