its actually quite a ways as the airport is north of Bellis Fair mall and Amtrak is at the Fairhaven area south of downtown. Not knowing B'ham taxi rates but perhaps $20-25? I don't know of any other options. Why not just take the train from Vanc? Its only $13 or so to Bham?

I'm taking Quick shuttle to BLI but when we come back & land at BLI, it's at 6am. Winter hours for Quick shuttle has the first departure from BLI at noon! I don't want to wait that long. The train goes at 10am which is doable, I suppose...The cab fare probably will justify the 2 hours cut off of waiting. Thanks David.

did you ask Quick shuttle if they could drop at the train? Its the same stop as the Alaska Ferry Terminal so I'd think they'd be a little flexible, especially if they are slow.

I must have you confused! I'm flying out of BLI, so Quick Shuttle from Vancouver is dropping us off there at a fine time for us to catch our flight.

When we fly back to BLI, we land at 6 am. I need to get back to Vancouver, but Quickshuttle's first pick up at BLI is noon! Amtrak has a departure at 10 am.

Why not just drive and park at the BLI Airport. We are in the same boat as you are arriving BLI at 6:05am from Honolulu on Alaska #898. If it is forcast for snow, then we will just leave a day early and stay in one of the local motels for one night and get free parking for a week and a free transfer to BLI and back.
