Whistler - Vancouver

Whistler- Vancouver without my car
Last week I needed to get from Whistler down to the city & decided that I did not want to take my car. I booked a seat on Pacific Coach Lines for the 12:30 bus. The bus was delux with very comfortable seats & the driver was most pleasant. I was down town in 1 hour 40 minutes!!! Faster than I could have driven with the bottle neck on the Lions Gate bridge ( busses have access to the express lane & bypass any road blocks) As I neared my drop off point I checked out the car to go app on my i'phone & there was a car available 1 block from my bus drop off point so I reserved it. ( you have 15 minutes that they will hold a car for you) I waltzed off the bus stretched my legs with a 2 minute walk to Burrard & Smithe & picked up my car to go. What a great way to get around. Much more relaxing than the drive down the Sea to Sky Highway.
