A working station that is the main transit terminal for reaching Downtown, the Waterfront Station was built in the early 20th century and is loved or its architecture and historical significance. The red building stands out from the other buildings in the neighbourhood while the interiors with arched columns and beautifully embellished ceiling- all make a pit stop here, well worth it . The shops inside sell small souvenirs while the view of the Burrard inlet another perk!

  • Built in 1985, this station has a beautiful architecture. Has a small food court down the hall near the Canada Line entrance, and easy access to Expo Line, Canada Line, SeaBus, Helijet, and West Coast Express. One of the great train stations of downtown Vancouver, almost has an architecture in the entrance as beautiful as Pacific Central Station, located near Main Street - Science World station.

  • What a gorgeous building at Waterfront Station, clean, efficient, handling incredible human traffic, whether to go on the water buses, trains, etc. On a rather rainy day, we visited to 'do something' and crossed on the water bus, highly recommend

  • I've sat there mesmerized but the abundance of panoramic canvas that The Waterfront affords everyone who take the time to enjoy the moment.

  • Vancouver's main train station done in the clean neoclassical style. Light-filled main hall. Feels small compared to other Union stations but good enough. Hard to find public washrooms though. Needs more retail and shops. Canada Line from YVR terminates here and it's walking distance to the port and several hotels in the area.

  • Conveniently Located in the heart of downtown Vancouver. It is the last stop and a starting point to get trains and sea bus to any destination within greater Vancouver area. Lots of eatery within and outside the station. Nearby attractions are gastown, ocean view, shopping malls and lots of restaurants and food truck places.
