Bus To Vancouver
Taking a bus to Vancouver is a common way to arrive in the city.
Usually, people who are traveling on a budget like backpackers tend to take the Greyhound bus or the Amtrak train from Seattle and other places as well.
Located at the intersection of Main & Terminal, the bus station in Vancouver is also the Vancouver train station. The building was refurbished after years of neglect and now is home to both Via Rail train station and the Greyhound bus depot.
The surrounding area is very close to the old site where Vancouver hosted Expo 86 and as the city gets ready once again to step onto the world stage in Winter 2010.
This part of town was once a bustling area and you can still see all the old boarding room buildings that would lodge travelers who would take the train and bus to Vancouver in a time when airline flights to Vancouver (or even the Vancouver airport) were only a futuristic dream at best!
Bus from Seattle to Vancouver
There is usually a bus from Seattle that arrives every few hours at the station as well as the daily Amtrak train that arrives from Seattle and departs soon after on its return trip from Vancouver to Seattle and further south down the coast which is a nice leisurely way to travel if you have the time.
A lot of people also take year round advantage of the scenic train to Banff and the train to Jasper as well as part of their Vancouver vacation as longer daytrips after they have visited all the "must see" sights that Vancouver has to offer and they include just naming a few:
People donít just take buses from Seattle to Vancouver , they travel to Vancouver and from Vancouver from all over North America.
Bus from Vancouver to Whistler
If you are going to Whistler there is also a bus from Vancouver as well that runs year round.
Of course if you arenít used to driving mountainous road, youíre better off taking the bus from Vancouver to Whistler instead of even considering a car rental and driving yourself up.
The Sea to Sky Highway is worth it and you'll want to take a look around you at the spectacular scenery.
