Take transit to the World Juniors

The Vancouver games are being played at Rogers Arena, conveniently located steps away from the Stadium–Chinatown Station, a stop on the SkyTrain’s Expo Line. Use our Trip Planner to find your transit route!

Watching games in Victoria? Take the SkyTrain’s Canada Line to Bridgeport Station and the 620 Tsawwassen Ferry bus will connect you to the terminal where you’ll catch the Tsawwassen-Swartz Bay ferry to Victoria. At Swartz Bay, you’ll want to take the 72 Downtown bus to Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre. Note: separate fares apply for the ferry and the 72 bus.
