Downtown to Airport Taxi: approx $35
Transit: $3.75 two-zone fare, approx 30 min on the Canada Line sky train. Board at either the Waterfront station (Granville & Hastings) or Vancouver City Centre (Granville & Georgia). You do *not* want the Expo/Millenium sky train.

The UBC Village is a great place to find lunch on Sunday before heading off to SIGGRAPH.
