Vancouver’s international airport (YVR) is just 35 minutes by car. Rapid transit between the airport and downtown Vancouver, the Canada Line, is only one block from the Centre for Dialogue. Nearly all of Vancouver’s major hotels are within a short walking distance, along with shopping districts, art galleries and restaurants.


Driving from Vancouver International Airport (YVR)

After crossing the Granville Street Bridge, take the Seymour Street exit and continue north on Seymour. Turn right into the Centre for Dialogue, just before reaching Hastings Street.

Public parking is available at many locations near the Centre for Dialogue. Street parking is free after 10 p.m. The closest parking lot is across the courtyard; enter via Seymour Street.

Public Transit
Major public transit lines, the SeaBus, SkyTrain, Canada Line and West Coast Express, terminate at Waterfront Station, located in the historic Canadian Pacific Railway Station on Cordova Street, opposite Simon Fraser University at Harbour Centre. Transit schedules can be found at www.translink.ca. The Centre for Dialogue is also within easy walking distance of most buses coming into the downtown core.
