Hi CHIMO ~

You would walk off the ferry and out the front door to the curb. The bus stop is right in front of you. Take the #257 Vancouver Express into town. Don't take the #250 which is the milk run. Either $2.50 or $3.75 exact change in coins, depending on the day and time of day. Once in town you have a couple of options.

1. You can get off the bus at Burrard St and walk north on Burrard to Burrard Station. Go down the esclator to take the skytrain to Main Station. From Main Station walk across the grass boulevard to Pacific Central Station. This map shows you this option.

2. Take the #257 to the "end of the line" at Dunsmuir and Cambie. Walk 150 metres to Stadium Station to take the skytrain 1 stop to Main Station. Walk to PCS as above. This map shows the walk from the bus stop at Dunsmuir and Cambie to Stadium Station. The driver will be helpful.

The #257 is scheduled for the ferries. It's used often and can be busy. Most people will have luggage. Your ticket is good for 90 minutes on all public transit.
