    Here for a trip to the U.S.? Bolt Bus / Amtrak (Bus/Train) / Greyhound are your best bets. Book online for better prices (Ahead of schedule).

    Des trains pour Toronto, Calgary, Kamloops et Seattle. Pour l'entrée aux USA (Amtrak Cascades), venez au moins 1h30 avant le départ du train.

    Bring pen for customs forms and be prepared to fill them out in line. If wanting to sit on specific side of the train, tell the agent at the end of that line as you're handing over your passport/forms

    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 :(

    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)

    No more luggage lockers here - they just removed them! Chalk up another practicality lost to "security".

    The Boltbus is a great form of transportation to go to and from Seattle/Portland. Plus, there's wifi on the bus.

    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

    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

    Ditch the car and take Greyhound Canada from Pacific Central Station to Whistler on the Sea-to-Sky Highway. Eight daily coach bus trips serve transit to Whistler Village on a 2.5 hour scenic drive. Read more

    If you're on the AM train heading south and sitting on the left side, expect sun the entire way down. Gorgeous views though!

    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.

    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...
