    Professional service. Will definitely use again
    The bus was clean and comfortable, and the driver Michael was fantastic. Approachable and knowledgeable, and a top class driver! I rode from Whistler to downtown Vancouver, and we arrived ahead of schedule. Thanks for the professional drive Michael, and for getting me to my appointment ahead of time!

    Trip to Squamish
    I needed to go to Squamish and the Skylynx bus to Whistler stopped here. I bought my ticket online and checked out the bus stop in Downtown. This can be a challenge as many tours and other long distance buses start from here. There can be a line of 10. My journey was safe and uneventful. The seats were comfortable, too. The stop in Squamish was at the Adventure Centre where there is a cafe, connecting bus stop (municipal buses), and plenty of tourist info.

    Going was great, return was a headache
    Easy way to get from YVR airport to Whistler. there were 4 other stops and it took 3hrs. Going there was great , coming back was a bit scary , at some point he was going 120km/hr ,turning and de-passing cars. If you have motion sickness take precautions.

    Michael & Harry - thanks!
    Had an excellent experience with Skylynx bus shuttle! Michael, our driver on Tuesday (21/11) from YVR to Whistler at 12:15, was friendly and made the journey enjoyable. On Thursday (23/11), our driver Harry at 13:30 was not only as handsome as Michael but also drove so smoothly that I was asleep the entire trip back to Vancouver. Both drivers provided top-notch service & deserve golf holiday trips. Kudos to Michael and Harry for making our travel comfortable and enjoyable. Highly recommend Skylynx for a smooth ride and great drivers! Five stars! 🌟

    Best option from Vancouver to Whistler if you don’t want to rent a car!
    I researched options and skylynx seemed the best based on reviews, particularly the normal bus route from the Vancouver airport to Whistler because they use the large coach line type busses with the bathroom in the back. Although the extra stops were not convenient and added time to the trip, we do not regret this decision. Guessing the trip could have been made in under two hours but the timetable (and they were punctual) had us departing/arriving each time in 3 hours with all the stops. We also had to wait at the airport on the way in and on the way out for a couple of extra hours each time due to our flight schedule and the bus schedule. For the price and service, this really was the best option for our family. We did not feel comfortable renting a car and driving as we are not familiar with the area and driving in snowy mountain conditions. We also didn’t want to end up in a smaller sprinter type van (based on some unfavorable reviews of these being a bit cramped, etc.) so we did not select the ‘express’ routes. The bus was clean and large and comfortable and on time. Drivers were courteous and drove safely. And it allowed us all to admire the scenery on the way. Sit on the left going to Whistler as others mentioned, for the best views! Drop off/pickup at Whistler Village was at the gateway loop near the visitor centre and was just around the corner from the Summit Lodge hotel where we were staying. From there, we walked with 4 rolling luggage, backpacks, and two children (8 and 10). No problems. On the return, it was a little more challenging because it had snowed and we departed early so it seemed the snow plows were just getting started. We managed with the luggage although some kind of drop off/pickup at the hotel would have been more convenient, it seemed like there were no better options unless you either had a rental car (not for us as we did not want to drive) or chose a private car (pricey).

    Excellent service
    Excellent on time collection at the hotel. Very pleasant driver and arrived in Vancouver airport right on time. Perfect service. It would be helpful if they ran a later service from Vancouver to whistler that connected with the late international flights

    Good experience
    Booked our oneway trip 3 months ago. Used a local (Uber) called Whistle to take us to the pickup point (Gateway Loop, Whistler) as we had lots of luggage. Highly recommend this company. All went to plan 😁

    Sit back and relax
    I chose the Express bus. Plenty of room and a bathroom. I did roundtrip and both took 2-2.5 hours. I was dropped off and picked up at the Westin hotel. Both drivers were professional. Special thanks to our return driver Michael for a great ride.

    Exceptional service
    Exceptional service. Picked up right on melville st there right at the hyatt hotel which is quite convenient. Driver was friendly and impeccable driving. Appreciated the safety announcement at the beginning of the trip and the very friendly priced fares, which makes up for how expensive everything is in Whistler. Highly recommend!

What a great bus service that takes you directly to Whistler from Downtown Vancouver. The pick-up location is super convenient right next to the skytrain station on burrard street. I forgot our drivers name, but he was courteous and professional. A far cry from the public transit bus drivers who seem to dislike their jobs. The bus was clean, modern and punctual. We even arrived at Whistler 15 mins early!

For the price, this service is fantastic and can't be beat. Just the price to fuel a full tank to drive up and down whistler would be more expensive than the $32 dollar ticket ride!

Highly recommend Skylynx!

What an outstanding bus service that links between Vancouver and Whistler. Buses are gorgeous, clean and has free wifi on board. The drivers are super friendly and really care about the passengers. Bus was very punctual and we left right on time. We arrived around 15 mins early to Whistler which was fantastic. Oh and the tickets are cheap for the distance travelled and the level of customer service they provide!

10/10!!!

Best and most comfortable shuttle bus to Squamish in town. I commute between Squamish and Vancouver for work and Skylynx is the only reason that I am able to go to work. They have a lot of departure times and the bus is always punctual so I am able to get to and from work on time. The tickets are so well-priced as well. I did the math and am saving a lot of money by taking their bus and not actually driving between the two cities.
