Vancouver Airport Authority Parking & Ground Transportation

There’s one aspect of air travel that often gets overlooked, mostly because it takes place on solid ground and involves four wheels. But the Vancouver Airport Authority Parking & Ground Transportation service knows that efficient, full-service airport parking is just as central to a smooth trip as getting your window or aisle seat preference.YVR, Canada’s second largest international airport, welcomed 16.2 million people in 2009, facilitated more than 258,000 aircraft take-offs and landings on its runways and handled 198,400 tonnes of cargo. But it has also taken an award-winning lead in ensuring that your parking experience is trouble-free, leaving you able to take to the air without a care.

To this end, the Vancouver Airport Authority Parking & Ground Transportation offers four distinct parking services designed to meet the individual needs of every traveller, whether you are a long-haul corporate traveller or weekend getaway artist.

Its premium Gateway Valet & Concierge Service, awarded Most Innovative Concession by the Airports Council International, offers a seamless travel experience, delivering curbside vehicle pick-up and drop-off at the front door of the terminal, and going well beyond parking, with a full-service concierge. The concierge service includes dry-cleaning, taking your pets to a kennel, automotive care – or any other needs you may have, such as booking a hotel or making reservations at the city’s hottest restaurants.

The Gateway Valet & Concierge Service now offers a parking rewards program called Prefera Rewards, which allows you to receive reward points every time you park with Gateway Valet. Customers receive a point for every net dollar spent on parking or auto detailing through its services at YVR. Redeeming points is as easy as earning them – just show your card when you pay and, for every 300 points accumulated, you’ll receive a $30 credit on parking or auto detailing.

The Prefera Rewards program is just one of the ways you can get premium service at non-premium prices. Via Aeroplan points and ongoing discount coupon programs, the Vancouver Airport Authority Parking & Ground Transportation service has a range of customer loyalty rewards as varied as its services.

If you’re heading off into the wild blue yonder, the Vancouver Airport Authority Parking & Ground Transportation service offers a highly affordable option with its Long-Term Parking Lot. Located just minutes away from the terminal, this convenient facility is available at any time of day or night via 24-hour complimentary shuttle buses. The Long-Term Parking Lot is security patrolled for your peace of mind while in the air.

As well, the YVR Economy Parking Lot, adjacent to the parkade, is just a quick walk from the terminal building via covered walkways. This lot, perfect for weekend breaks or quick jaunts, is also security patrolled. Committed to providing safe, reliable and convenient parking options for all of YVR’s customers from business executives to families heading out on a fun-filled vacation, the Vancouver Airport Authority Parking & Ground Transportation service delivers parking options that will make sure that the all-important first and last parts of your journey are as trouble-free as possible.
