History and purpose

Airport Station facing northeast, towards Lulu Island.

It was built around 2000, mainly for the 98 B-Line, a bus rapid transit line from Richmond to Vancouver. Located at the foot of the Airport Connector Bridge near the intersection of Russ Baker Way and Miller Road, it is the transfer point to the 424 Airport/Airport Station bus, the only daytime/evening route to the Vancouver International Airport main terminal. The N10 route provides service between Airport Station and the main terminal late night and early morning when the 424 is not in service.

Airport Station also served community shuttles going to the nearby community of Burkeville and the south terminal of the airport, which serves local and smaller airlines. IKEA also sent a shuttle bus to Airport Station to pick up customers.

Airport Station was closed September 7, 2009, after the opening of the Canada Line SkyTrain. Bus routes serving Airport Station were discontinued or rerouted to Bridgeport Station or Marpole Loop .[1]
