VENUE ACCESS & TRAVEL INFORMATION
ANVIL CENTRE is conveniently located in the historic cultural district of the City of New Westminster, BC.
By rapid transit (TransLink)
The Anvil Centre is across the street from New Westminster SkyTrain station.
It takes less than 30-minutes from downtown Vancouver to New Westminster by both the Expo and Millennium Lines.
Visitors arriving from Vancouver International Airport can connect to SkyTrain via the Canada Line at the airport and transfer at Waterfront Station.
The scenic 26-km BC Parkway is a multi-use path that roughly parallels the Expo SkyTrain Line, connecting Surrey City Centre, New Westminster, South Burnaby, and Vancouver. The BC Parkway passes within a block of Anvil Centre.
We have partnered with The Bicycle Valet (Better Environmentally Sound Transportation) and TransLink to provide safe and secure bike parking outside the Anvil Centre for those riding to the Summit.
New Westminster is connected to Metro Vancouver’s major highways and roads via three bridges: the Queensborough Bridge (connecting Highway 91 and the East-West Connector), the Patullo Bridge (connecting Surrey’s King George Boulevard), and the new Port Mann Bridge (connecting Highway 1).
Underground Parking at the Anvil Centre is available. There are 7 accessible parking stalls. The size of the accessible parking stall is approximately 13ft x 16ft or 4m x 5.1m.
