Pacific Central's grand Neoclassical building serves as a major stop for Amtrak Cascades service to and from Seattle and transportation hub for Vancouver. Skytrain access to downtown runs all day.
Do not eat mcdonald's before any long travel. It's never worth it.
Catch the Greyhound bus here to get non-stop service to Whistler!
The color photobooth is great! A wonderful way to remember last moments with a friend before a journey.
For train 6:40am, Foreigner to USA must be here atound 5:30am
If you're on the AM train heading south and sitting on the left side, expect sun the entire way down. Gorgeous views though!
For encounters with extremely unpleasant Greyhound staff, come here!
A solid place to people watch!
No more luggage lockers here - they just removed them! Chalk up another practicality lost to "security".
When taking the Greyhound ALWAYS arrive 30mins early to buy your ticket and clear security check. No sharp or dangerous items in your carry-on and have your ticket and ID ready to show security.
Reminds me of Hugo. Best thing about this place is most definitely the McDonalds ;)
Definitely a traffic hub. Trains, buses, etc. You'll always find tourists here
Stay away from the bathrooms. Last resort only!
The bus to whistler is actually a gray hound, not an Amtrak bus behind the station. When you make an online reservation, it doesn't mention that...
They don't have a ticket machine... so you have to wait in line...
Vancouver to seattle for the views - double check the schedule to make sure you get the train not the bus - schedule info is very confusing :(
McDonalds is gone :(
Don't buy the muffins from the little coffee shop. So stale.
If you're taking the southbound train: Try to get a seat on the eastern side. (seats A/B)
The Boltbus is a great form of transportation to go to and from Seattle/Portland. Plus, there's wifi on the bus.
Maybe no big gluten free selection but at least there is cold beers Canadian too!
Ah, McDonald's- we hardly knew ye. Here's hoping something better replaces it.
Dining car options are slim and without Gluten Free options (aside from coffee and bananas.)
If you are taking the train to the US it's better to have some American money to use at the on board cafe, because they don't give you a fair exchange for Canadian money.
Automatically fining parking meters - what an intense level of asshattery
The 516 never arrives here on time, so make sure you're prepared to wait
Really nice attendant working for via rail who knew just about everything you needed to know!
Amtrak bus from Seattle arrives at the front of the station.
Yay, finally made it home
