How to Get from Capilano Suspension Bridge to Grouse Mountain

Combining two of Vancouver’s most important tourist attractions in the same trip is tidy business, but how exactly do you get from Capilano Suspension Bridge Park to Grouse Mountain and vice versa?

I’m going to help you do just that, whether you’ve got your own car or are taking transport.

I’ll even be listing a way you can see both without lifting a finger – let’s take a look!

Traveling Between Capilano Suspension Bridge and Grouse Mountain

By Car

The fastest way to get to Grouse Mountain from Capilano Suspension Bridge is by car – the 4.3 kilometer trip should take about 8 minutes in typical traffic conditions.

This is the most flexible route, allowing you to hit some of the best places to eat near Capilano Suspension Bridge.

First, turn left out of the Capilano Suspension Bridge parking lot onto Capilano Road.

Then, follow it for 2.1 kilometers until it turns into Nancy Greene Way, and take a right at the Grouse Mountain sign.

By Bus

As seen above, to grab the bus you’ll have to walk 350 meters up Capilano Road to bus stop 54365.

Here, you can grab the 232 bus (Grouse Mountain) which will take you 10 stops north. Get off at the Grouse Mountain @ Skyride stop, and from here it’s just a 200 meter walk to the gondola.

The ride is in Zone 1 of the Vancouver public transportation system and costs $3.05.

It is true that you can get shuttles for both of these top Vancouver attractions from downtown Vancouver. That said, there is no shuttle service between Capilano Suspension Bridge and Grouse Mountain.

If you’re doing a proper Vancouver itinerary I strongly suggest doing both – and this is a great way to do it.
