Get in
Maple Ridge lies along Highway 7 and can be accessed from the west via Pitt Meadows or from the east via Mission. From Highway 1, you can take the 176th, 192nd, or 200th street exits in Surrey and Langley and cross the Golden Ears Bridge into Maple Ridge, but be warned: it is a toll bridge (costing $2.80 one way).
From Vancouver or YVR, expect a one-hour commute by car, or over two hours by bus.
 Get around
Translink's bus services in Maple Ridge are slim but sufficient. The 701 and 791 buses run along Dewdney Trunk Road and will take you to the main spots in town. From there community shuttles can take you the rest of the way, but they run infrequently.
There are also a few cab companies based out of Maple Ridge.

There isn't much to see in Maple Ridge. Probably the biggest attraction is a large clock with a steel horse monument on top, located outside City Hall on Dewdney Trunk Road. In the past, its limbs would move every fifteen minutes to make the horse stand up on its hind legs, but apparently it doesn't even do that anymore.

If you're looking for high retail, Maple Ridge is definitely not the place to be.
