Waterfront Station, Vancouver Reviews

  • First the bad: Where are the friggin' washrooms?! I couldn't find any! Now the good: Everything else. From the outside, it looks like I'm getting into a train station from the 1700s in London. But the inside is completely modern. The sign boards are clear and visible from a good distance guiding people to the right place. The station also has some places to eat (quick snacks though, not restaurants). The bridge that takes you from the main train station to the waterfront SeaBus station is EPIC! You get the best view from there. The water, the mountains, the downtown building, the sea harbor, everything. I think this is one the best design train stations I have ever seen in the world. Yes, including LA Union station and NY Grand Central.

  • Good station. Business start-up office. Read up on your ideas and how to market them. A Starbucks, A & W, Subway and numerous other shops. Some are pop-ups and are not always there. Royal Bank ATMs. Benches. You could go anywhere from here. Mission, North or West Van, Burnaby, Surrey, Richmond. Lots of connections. One of the major hubs of the Greater Vancouver transit/bus system

  • Everything is well informed and clean. Nice and friendly staff.

  • Always crowded at 4:30 pm My complaint is when skytrain breaks down at or near this stop during the evening rush. February 5th was not a good timing.

  • That's a really nice building. I like the place as there are also nice restaurants either in the station or just nearby...
