    Good Transportation Alternative
    Good alternative between Whistler, Squamish, and YVR if you don't have a car. I took Skylynx between Squamish and YVR. Quick and easy. The driver, Mo, was great. I was originally going to travel from Whistler, but had to change my itinerary. The extra for a flexible ticket was worth it!!

    Mountain to sea bus travel is a breeze with Skylynx
    Professional, safe and clean sums up the Whistler to Vancouver Skylynx charter. Micheal our driver is a rock star. He is so friendly and entertaining. He really made us feel like we were in good hands the entire trip. Be sure to arrive early to ensure a good seat for amazing views.

    Great shuttle experience from Whistler to Vancouver
    After a long trip skiing, Michael made the experience of a long drive back to Vancouver exceptional. He helped with my luggage, and he was a great driver! Given there’s a lot of options for a shuttle, I would highly recommend taking the SkyLynx and ask for Michael as your driver. You’ll be in great hands!

    Best Bus Service to Whistler!
    I chose to fly into YVR Airport for a 3 day snowboarding Whistler trip with a couple buddies of mine. If you are looking for a cost effective and efficient bus service to Whistler, look no further! I went with the flexible RT ticket, which was $75 ($37.50 each way) compared to the non refundable ticket of $70.00 ($35 each way). For such a minimal difference, I didn’t want to take my chances. For these prices, it’s almost a no brainer to take this bus. Also, since these prices are in CAD, with the US conversion rates, it made it even cheaper! (~ $50 USD). I ain’t complaining! 2 pieces of luggage were included; which was ample for us as 1 piece was our boards and the other, a small hand carry. Anyways, once we arrived, we walked out to Bay 9 (take a left) and were greeted by Mo. He was super friendly, professional and an exceptional driver! The whole overall ride was smooth and comfortable. The bus was exceptionally clean and seats were comfy. It took roughly about 2.5 hours to get to the Whistler Village. I would recommend YVR Skylynx to anyone looking for a efficient and cost effective solution to Whistler! I had such a great experience that I will only take them when I go to Whistler again! I also found out that they make stops in Downtown Vancouver as well! Y’all have a customer for life! Thanks YVR Skylynx and Mo (great driving skills!)

    Michael to the rescue
    I had an amazing experience with Skylynx, specifically Michael the bus driver. I was waiting in the wrong area for the bus and Michael took the time to text me, call me, and found where I was incorrectly waiting and ensured I made it on the bus. Without Michael I would not have made it on the bus and would have never made it to Whistler. I can’t recommend Skylynx, especially Michael’s service, enough. 10/10.

    Skylynx is easy, quick , punctual
    Travelling with Skylynx is easy and fast. The website is easy and quick to use. Mike the bus driver was punctual, friendly, knowledgeable and extremely helpful . Mike arrived at Burrard sky train station 20 minutes early to ensure that everyone had an opportunity to put their bags away and choose their seats. We departed on time (just like the website says). Mike was an awesome and obviously a professional driver, he encouraged everyone to wear their seatbelts (not many people followed his advice). We arrived in whistler early, which was awesome. One note that was beyond Mike’s control and concerning was that Mike received a cell phone call from the head office while he was driving (I was seated behind Mike & could hear the conversation). Highly inappropriate, unsafe, illegal and concerning. Mike was polite and professionally reminded the caller that he was driving. Apparently, someone arrived late and had missed the bus and made allegations that the bus had left early. In my opinion, head office should NOT be calling a driver while he was driving. To make this worse, the head office called Mike three times.

    Comfortable, on time, free wifi
    They were on time, the drivers were informative and courteous (particularly the French one I think on Friday 7th April) he told us about some sights of interest as we passed through Squamish and showed us pictures on his iPad as it was too misty to see properly. Comfortable seats with charger points and free wifi! 👍

    Alex our driver - you legend !
    Today 4/29 we were booked on the 1230 Burrard station Vancouver - Whistler service.Prior to boarding Alex our driver advised there would be significant delays in getting to Whistler due to the 99 being closed in both directions due to MVA.We had a couple of stops enroute to avoid sitting in stopped traffic and Alex was presented with some significant challenges and he consistently demonstrated a calm,relaxed demeanour and kept his pax well informed of what was going on.Alex got us to our destination safely and he was well appreciated. Myself ,coming from airline operations, Alex is the kind of person I would want in my team everyday of the week. Thanks again Alex, Luke - Australia.

    The bus was clean and comfortable, and the driver Michael was fantastic. Approachable and knowledgeable, and a top class driver!

Decided to use YVR Skylynx to go to Whistler as we saw many of their buses in the DT area of Vancouver and it was the perfect choice! This is such a well-ran service and the tickets were insanely cheap. Just 35 dollar to get to Whistler from DT is a steal. Buses were on time, clean and very new. The charge points are also such a bonus as my little ones were able to use their ipad and catch up on their favorite shows during the entire trip. The adults (husband and I) were able to enjoy the spectacular views on the way up while our children's attention was focused on their devices!

Thank you Skylynx and highly recommend!

Absolutely love the Skylynx Whistler Bus service! It makes going to Whistler so easy and simple. I flew in with my friend into Vancouver Airport, checked in right at the arrivals area and then headed over to bus bay 9 and got picked-up and chauffeured directly to Whistler.

We chose the express service which skipped all the downtown stops and took us directly to the Fairmont Hotel which was such a bonus!

Highly recommend Skylynx!

My husband and I wanted to go to Whistler for the weekend and because we were visiting from Calgary and had no car we decided to ask concierge at the Hyatt what was the best option. So glad Mark, our concierge, recommended YVR Skylynx! The bus picked up directly at the hotel so it was super convenient and easy to find and board. The tickets were very easy to book over their website and the service was exceptional.

5 stars and highly recommend this Whistler bus service to all travelers that want a quick, professional and reasonably priced bus to Whistler!

The outbound leg was perfect, very friendly driver, on time.
Inbound the driver didn't say a word, he was slow checking people onto the bus , leaving 20mins late.
We all felt in necessary to put sear belts on due to his erratic driving
Eventually we arrived in Vancouver, but the driver couldn't find the railway station, driving around in circles.
45 mins late we arrived at the Airport.
Therefore be careful with your timings for flights. If possible go for the express Service.

I didn't catch his name but our driver today was fantastic. Politely checked everyone in, helped my mom and I with our bags and drove all of us safely to our destination early. I will definitely look to ride with Skylynx again the next time I visit Whistler.

Simply the best Whistler bus service with numerous departure times, excellent pricing and fantastic customer service. Skylynx knows what the customer wants and delivers the product to perfection. I take the 7:00 am up and 4:00 pm bus service back down almost every weekend during the winter season to enjoy my season pass at the mountain and this makes it so much easier than driving especially after factoring the hassle and fuel costs.

If you need to travel to Whistler and back for any reason, Skylynx should be your #1 choice every time.
