Canada Line transit to Vancouver

If you're taking the Canada Line from the airport to the city, you will notice that the price of a 1-zone and up ride listed on the ticket machine charges an extra $5. You can save yourself this $5 by buying a faresaver ticket. Remember to have an extra ticket with you for your arrival the next time you leave the city.

When buying a ticket through the machine, remember that a 1-zone ticket will get you anywhere around Richmond. If you're traveling more than 2-zones, just add fare to your 1-zone ticket.

Discount fare periods (1-zone fare will you travel multiple zones): Weekdays after 6:30 pm and all day Saturday, Sunday & statutory holidays.

Traveling to Manhattan through Newark airport

A few tips for those traveling to the Big Apple through Newark airport.
  • An easy and cost effective way to get to Manhattan from Newark airport is the NJ Transit line. Take an AirTrain from the airport to the first NJ Transit stop and from there, hop on a train to New York Penn Station. Cost should be around $12 one-way. 
  • Arriving in Newark airport affords you a free ride on the AirTrain.
  • NJ Transit line does not run between 2am - 5am. This is what's stated on the website, but there may be trains that start at 4am.
Going back to Newark airport from Manhattan is pretty much the same. Take a NJ Transit train from New York Penn station to Newark airport. Remember to keep your train ticket as it allows you to take the AirTrain to the airport for free.
