How The Shuttle Works
We Monitor Your Flight
We don’t have a set schedule. We are constantly adjusting our Vancouver Airport shuttle departure schedule throughout the day to take into account flight delays and cancellations.
Land & Collect Your Luggage
Grab your bags and head for international arrivals.
Meet a Friendly Airport Rep
Friendly reps are waiting to answer your questions and help you find your ride.
Minimal Wait Time
Waiting around at the airport is no fun. Our entire service is designed to get you moving quickly. In fact, we’ve got a wait time guarantee. If you wait too long… your ride to Whistler is free!
Hit The Road
You’re on your way! Sit back, relax, and enjoy the view. You’ll be in Whistler in approximately 2.5 hours (depending on traffic and weather).
Arrive in Whistler
We can drop you at Creekside, Whistler Village, your hotel, your condo, or even a private address!
Get To Whistler Faster
Minimal Airport Wait! We customize our departures every day around the inbound flights of our guests. Then we modify the schedule throughout the day to adapt to inevitable flight delays and cancellations. You get to Whistler faster!
Never Miss Your Shuttle
Your flight is tracked by our team, so if it’s late you will not miss your shuttle from YVR to Whistler. Flights get delayed and cancelled all the time. Delays at customs & immigration are frequent. We react accordingly and will get you on the next available shuttle. If your flight is delayed outside of our operating hours, we will provide service on the next available shuttle or bus to Whistler on the following day.
The Whistler Shuttle is super convenient and hassle-free. Our shuttles and buses board at Vancouver International Airport (YVR) just outside the international arrivals greeting area. No need to haul your luggage, bikes, or winter gear on public transit to meet your shuttle to Whistler!
Locally Owned & Operated
The Whistler Shuttle is owned and operated by Whistler locals. We live & play in Whistler. We’ve been driving the Sea-to-Sky highway for decades. We are the experts when it comes to shuttle transfers from YVR airport to Whistler.
The Best Hours of Operation
The Whistler Shuttle is the best option for early and late flights arriving at YVR Airport!

Outstanding service. Departed airport within 30 mins of meeting the Shuttle staff.
Efficient and friendly as always. I arrived at the airport ahead of time and they were able to get me onto the earlier transfer without any bother.
Excellent Service! Very easy to reach when you arrive Vancouver. We had unexpected delays due to air traffic but that was no problem with our reservation. Very easy to coordinate return from Whistler to VA airport. Very friendly staff and quick response to doubts or assistance.
Whistler shuttle was a nice and easy experience. They base your trip off your flight times. It seems this was the fastest way to get out to Whistler from Vancouver while being financially reasonable. Driver was super nice and courteous. I would use this again and definitely recommend to anyone who needs a shuttle to and from Whistler.
Drivers were friendly, coaches comfortable and ran on time. Would definitely use this service again.
Super easy shuttle from Vancouver airport to Whistler Blackcomb. We picked this service because they track your flight and adjust if your flight is delayed. They charge a little more for their service, but it was worth the peace of mind for us. Nice shuttles and friendly drivers made our experience great!
They provide a good service. Drivers and staff are friendly and helpful. Best way to get to the slopes from Vancouver.

Vancouver Airport to Whistler FAQ
Do I need to book in advance?
Tickets must be purchased in advance. You cannot purchase a ticket on the bus. We highly recommend booking at least 72 hours in advance so that you will be guaranteed seating availability, and in order to qualify for our wait time guarantee. Any booking made inside of 72 hours is subject to availability and does not qualify for the wait time guarantee.
Can I purchase a Whistler Shuttle ticket at Vancouver Airport?
Yes. You can book a bus from anywhere (including YVR airport) by phone or online. If you are at Vancouver Airport, the staff at the airport information desk can call through for you if you find that your cell phone doesn’t work in Canada.
What kind of vehicle will I ride in?
The Whistler Shuttle operates a fleet of vans, mini-buses, and full size buses (motor coaches). The vehicle that you ride in will depend on the day, time of day, and volume of flights and passengers. We can’t guarantee the type of vehicle, but you will be comfortable and safe!
What happens if my flight is delayed?
Your flight status is tracked by our airport dispatch team. If your flight number is changed, please let us know. We will provide shuttle service on the next available shuttle departure time, unless your flight is delayed later than our hours of operation, listed above. In the case of a late arrival, we will provide service on the next available shuttle to Whistler on the following day.
