Buses Vancouver to Whistler

We will be busing to and from Down town Vancouver/Whistler in January 2013. I know there are various bus lines that do this run but is there one that can offer us a more comfortable journey than the others?

Thanks for your help.

Hi perthtravelbugs ~

Greyhound is the blue collar coach, extending almost all the way across the country. Think public transit but at a highway, intercity level.

www.greyhound.ca

Pacific Coach Lines is a local coach line with a focus on providing a higher end service to two destinations: a) to Whistler and b) to Victoria.

www.pacificcoach.com

Both take the same time to get between Vancouver and Whistler. Greyhound leaves from the bus depot. PCL does hotel pickups/drop offs with their "Whistler Express" service. It also transfers between the airport and Whistler with their "Skylinx" service. PCL's fares are higher than Greyhound.

Snowbus is another but geared for skiers. It leaves from a station just down the Canada Line from the airport, picks up at a couple of curbside locations in downtown Vancouver and heads off to Whistler. 2 departures a day.

I think it would be fair to say that Greyhound and Snowbus will attract high school and uni students and anyone who wants the cheaper fare, PCL, as I mentioned has the higher fare.
