FROM THE ALDERGROVE BORDER CROSSING
Aldergrove Border (Lynden Crossing) to Canada: The Aldergrove border is accessed to Canada by Guide Meridian coming from Lynden Washington. When entering Canada you will end up on 264 Street (the #13 Aldergrove-Bellingham Hwy merges into 264th). If you carry on 264th it will take you to Hwy 1, head west to Vancouver-proper. When you see exit signs to Vancouver-proper (there will be several, some might read "city centre") take any of the westbound exits off of highway 1 into Vancouver-proper (follow signs, Hastings St. exit is the last of the exits before you've gone too far). It's about 45 minutes to downtown from the border. Click here for a map of the downtown area with the conference venue and hotels indicated.
