Hi Gail,

There is no train from Vancouver to Vernon.

The Greyhound bus covers that route.

Also, you may want to contact Moose Travel Network and find out if they would take you to Vernon at the time of your trip. Their winter ski shuttle bus goes from Vancouver to Kelowna (not that far from Vernon) and to the ski resorts of Big White and Silver Star.

The greyhound may be offer some enjoyable scenery for a couple tourists, but I'd really advise against it - minimum 6 1/2 hours to Vernon, annoying people on the bus, etc.

I'd really recommend renting a car if you can afford it. Especially since there is practically no public transport in Vernon, and no neighbourhood you could stay in that you won't want / need to get out of once in a while.

Another option would be to fly from Vancouver to Kelowna, the airport is only a 25 minute drive / shuttle ride to Vernon, flights can be had cheap if you book in advance. Incidentally, I would strongly recommend against flying air canada on this route, if you can avoid it.
