Greyhound Canada has added two new daily round trip express buses from Vancouver to Whistler.
The company also added two express routes with three daily round trips starting in Vancouver and heading to Coquitlam, Abbotsford with one ending in Kelowna and the other in Kamloops.
“We are thrilled to offer this upgraded service at an everyday affordable fare, which is what our customers deserve,” said Stuart Kendrick, senior vice-president at Greyhound Canada in a press release. “Thanks to the demand for this type of service, Greyhound Express has become the largest premium bus transportation network in North America in just two years, and we thank our customers for their loyalty.”
In February, Greyhound reduced the Vancouver to Squamish route from seven to four daily round trips. The Vancouver to Whistler round trips were also reduced to four from eight. The company cited a $14.1 million loss as one of the reasons for the cuts when presenting the service reduction to the B.C. Passenger Transportation Board. The 3:15 p.m. bus to Pemberton was also cancelled, prompting regular commuters from that community to start a petition.
