Vancouver Airport is located quite far from anywhere of interest and therefore walking is not recommended.

 YVR Vancouver Airport by Bike

Vancouver International Airport Bike

Cycling is a excellent alternative from the Vancouver Airport. Several bike lanes exist from the Vancouver Airport into both Richmond and Vancouver. Richmond is very flat, so cycling is quite easy. Additional routes exist into Vancouver and beyond.

Bikes are also welcome on public buses (maximum 2 per bus) at no additional charge.
