getting to Bellingham

What is the best way to get to Bellingham port to pick up the ferry. We will fly to Vancouver initially and then make our way to Bellingham for the ferry.

We do not have a car although could hire one.

Does the train/bus terminal meet the ferry. It is not clear from what I have read so far.

Any help would be appreciated

Thanks Eileen

The train station is close to the ferry terminal--I'm assuming you're talking about the Alaska State Ferry. At this time there is one train per day from Vancouver to Bellingham in the evening, so you may have to arrive the night before your ferry (not sure what time the ferry leaves).

An additional early morning train from Vancouver is supposed to be added soon but the start date hasn't yet been set officially (but I've heard August 17).

the train stops right there. Quckshuttle does serve the Bellingham airport from Vancouver but the distance is a little far. You can also try Greyhound for transport to Bham as from downtown to ferry is not very far and taxis are available.
