1. By Bus:
#50 False Creek
The #50 False Creek bus comes from Gastown in the downtown area, along Granville St., and stops just off Granville Island, at the intersection of Anderson St. and West 2nd Ave. It will let you off on the southeast side of West 2nd Ave. Look for the large Granville Island sign and the yellow and rainbow-ed Kids Market along Anderson St. northward.
The Granville & 5th Ave at the south end of the Granville Bridge, is also an interchange for many of the urban and suburban routes. Hop off your bus at 5th Ave and walk 5-10 minutes northward under the bridge to get to Granville Island.
Other Bus Routes,

2. By Boat:
The rainbow-coloured Aquabus travels around False Creek with stops at the foot of Hornby St., Stamp's Landing, Yaletown (foot of Davie St.), and Science World. The Aquabus dock on Granville Island is located between the Public Market and the Arts Club Theatre.

False Creek Ferry,
The False Creek Ferries also travel around the Inlet and stop at the Maritime Museum (west of Granville Island), the Aquatic Centre (under the Burrard St. Bridge, on the downtown side (north) of the Inlet), Stamp's Landing, and Science World (the easternmost point of False Creek). The False Creek Ferry dock on Granville Island is located near the entrance to Bridges Restaurant.

3. By Car:
Travel towards the intersection of West 4th Avenue and Fir Street. Then head north on Fir Street, and take either the first right at West 3rd Avenue (which turns into Anderson St. to the left (north), or take the second right at West 2nd Ave. You will then find yourself at the intersection of West 2nd Avenue and Anderson St., and should be able to see the Granville Island sign under the bridge looking northward on Anderson St. Follow Anderson St. onto Granville Island. As soon as you turn the corner onto Cartwright St., (where the Kids Market is located) you'll notice that all of the streets on the Island are now one-way.

*Parking on Granville Island is limited. Here is more information on parking.

4. By Bike:
Bicycle routes to Granville Island follow the main car routes, but there's also a pleasant, scenic bicycle path (shared with pedestrians) that runs east-to-west past the Island along the south shore of False Creek Inlet. Aquabus also has a bike-friendly boat - the Cyquabus - that allows bicyclers to hop aboard from the dock at the foot of Hornby St.

5. By Foot:
Walking from the East or West
The south shore walk, which passes right by Granville Island, begins at its easternmost point just under the Cambie Street Bridge, and heads all the way west to some of Vancouver's most popular beaches.

Walking from the North

Walk from anywhere in the downtown area to one of the False Creek Ferry or Aquabus docks at the Aquatic Centre, Yaletown, Science World, the foot of Hornby St., or the foot of Davie St. Hop on the boat for a quick jaunt over to Granville Island.

Walking from the South

You'll be following the underside of the Granville Street Bridge for some of your journey if you head to Granville Island from the south. Many roads culminate at the intersection of Anderson St. and West 2nd Ave.
