Check out the restaurant listings and filter the search based on your area.

Over 50 restaurants on this year’s Dine Out list are located in downtown Vancouver. Both the Expo Line and Canada Line SkyTrain offer fast and frequent travel to downtown.

The Expo Line and Millennium Line SkyTrain can also take you to Dine Out experiences in Burnaby, New Westminster, and Coquitlam.

To access restaurants in Richmond and West Vancouver, the Canada Line SkyTrain and buses are available.

If you plan on enjoying a few glasses of wine during your Dine Out experience, taking transit is a convenient alternative to driving back home or to your hotel.

Pay for your transit fare with your contactless credit card or Interact Debit card

It’s easy to pay for your transit fare with contactless Interact Debit and credit cards. Including American Express, Mastercard, Visa, and mobile wallets (Apple Pay, Google Pay, and Samsung Pay).

Just tap your card or device on our Compass Card readers to pay and enter the system.

There are no lines when purchasing your transit fare and no need to calculate the number of zones you are travelling.

If you don’t have a contactless credit or debit card, Compass Ticket (or an Adult Compass Card) is available for purchase from our Compass Vending Machines.

Compass Vending Machines are located at SkyTrain stations, SeaBus terminals, Tsawwassen and Horseshoe Bay ferry terminals, and select London Drugs stores. You can also pre-purchase a second Compass Ticket for your return trip to save time. Note that once Compass Tickets are activated (which is when you first tap it on the card reader), they are valid for 90 minutes.

If you are paying by cash on the bus, you will be given a paper transfer that can be used to transfer between buses, but not to the SkyTrain, SeaBus, or West Coast Express.

Park at our Park and Ride lots to save on parking

Our Park and Ride lots are located throughout Metro Vancouver near transit stations, including at six West Coast Express Stations. You can park your car for between $2 to $3 all day. Then hop on to transit and let us take you the rest of the way to your dining experience.
