Another Vancouver airport ? - Need some opinions

Jump to last reply

More Vancouver airport related? REALLY need some opinions.

On the way back from our trip to Hawaii, we are stopping for a couple of days in Vancouver and I need some advice on the best way to get from and to the airport.
I know there are taxis, limos and the Skytrain available - I am just not sure what will be best for our circumstances.

Us - 3 middle-aged adults (one with M.S. but she moves pretty well - but can get VERY tired).
Arrival - approx 7AM on a Monday
Going from airport to Robson and Denman area.
Would a taxi be likely to be caught in bad rush hour traffic? I assume that we will probably be out of the airport by 8AM. The estimated taxi cost (metered) (as per the airport website is around $32 - is this too optimistic for that time of day?
The best limo price (flat rate) I have found is $55 before taxes and tip. Would it be better to go with that flat rate rather than chance the metered rate? Your opinions please?

Taking the Skytrain (8.75 each) and then a taxi from the Skytrain station is another possibility . Given that our friend has one giant suitcase (we have much smaller ones) - is this at all practical? It 's probably the cheapest (and maybe the fastest). If someone thinks it's a good idea - which Skytrain station should we get off at (given that we are going to Denman and Robson)?

Return to airport to get to Toronto:
Flight out at noon. Planning to arrive at airport by 10AM
How early should we leave the hotel - I am thinking that 9AM should give us enough time - if we take a taxi. If we decide to try taxi + Skytrain - how much time should I allocate?
Any idea what a taxi from the hotel (Denman and Robson) to the airport should cost?

Sorry to overthink this - but I always want everything to be reasonably planned out and smooth when we travel with our friend. Your advice and experiences would be very much appreciated.
