    We were staying in Surrey, and also visiting Richmond and Steveston that day, so going by car was the best option for us. Traffic wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, and the entire drive, took less than 20 minutes. We parked near the Irving House, where there were no meters, and set off on foot.
    Most tourists just come here by sky train, but since we were visiting Richmond, and Steveston on the same day, we had to take a car. I am glad we did, because the Quay was a bit difficult to get to on foot, so we had to drive. Having your own car in New Westminster, is really great.
    If you're visiting Quay, you have no choice but to park at a paid parking, but if you're visiting the city, there are a few streets that don’t have meters, so you can park for free.

    take the skytrain!

    by rwlittle Written Jan 22, 2005

    The Skytrain is the most efficient way of getting from New West to downtown Vancouver. There are five different Skytrain stations (I'm quoting from their website here):

    22nd Street Station
    On 7th Avenue at 22nd Street in New Westminster. Close to Marine Way and Queensborough.

    New Westminster
    At Columbia and 8th Street in New Westminster. Opposite the New Westminster Quay.

    Columbia Station
    On Columbia at 4th Street in New Westminster.

    At the foot of Keary Street in New Westminster.

    Located near Braid Street and Brunette Avenue.

    New West is easily accessable from downtown Vancouver, Burnaby and Surrey. You can get there by taking the skytrain eastbound and getting off at the New Westminster or Columbia skytrain stations. It takes approximately 20 minutes to go to New Westminster from downtown Vancouver by skytrain.

    The skytrain is a light rail transit system (ie: monorail) - owned and run by Translink. I believe $2.50 buys you a pass onto the skytrain which also allows you access onto the bus anywhere in Greater Vancouver. More information, including the skytrain map, is available on the Translink website.
