Waterfront Station access to Vancouver Heliport

Waterfront Station access to Vancouver Heliport via Seabus Skywalk – UPDATED October, 2019

Helijet passengers who use Waterfront Station access to Vancouver Harbour Heliport will encounter Fare Gates to complete their walking journey.

A Compass Card, Compass Tickets or a contactless Visa, MasterCard or American Express credit card is required to access the *Waterfront Station Skywalk, (overhead walkway), to/from Helijet.

On a normal transit trip, the Fare Gates will acknowledge that you have a valid payment on your card when you tap in, and when you tap out it will charge the appropriate fare based on the distance of Fare Zones travelled. However, if guests tap in + tap out of the same station within 20 minutes you will see a tap in and refund.

Single-Use Compass Tickets purchased from ticket vending machines may also be used to walk through the station and/or as part of longer transit journey (20 minute refund does not apply)

Remember you must TAP IN AND OUT of the station, even if a door or gate is open, failure to do so will result in your card being charged the maximum Translink 3-Zone fare.
