Outstanding service. Departed airport within 30 mins of meeting the Shuttle staff.
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.
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.
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.
Drivers were friendly, coaches comfortable and ran on time. Would definitely use this service again.

Vancouver Airport to Whistler Shuttle FAQ
Which Airport Shuttle Departure Time Should I Choose?
We highly recommend leaving Whistler a minimum of 5 hours before your flight departure time at Vancouver International Airport (YVR). The typical driving time from Whistler to Vancouver Airport is approximately 2.5 hours. We know that you want to stay in Whistler for as long as possible, but here’s why 5 hours makes sense:
- Weather – Whistler gets a lot of snow in the winter, which is great for skiing, but can make for slower winter driving conditions for our bus drivers on the Sea-to-Sky highway.
- Vancouver Traffic: 2.5 million people call Vancouver home. Congested traffic is a fact of life. The route from Whistler to Vancouver airport takes us across two bridges and through downtown. This route is subject to congestion during rush hour or bad weather.
- Unforeseen circumstances: There is only one road from Whistler to Vancouver and it is subject to occasional construction or delays/closures due to accidents.
- Airline and YVR check-in policies: You need to be at the airport well in advance of your flight to ensure smooth check-in and time to clear security.
- International Departures: Recommended time is a minimum of 2 hours before your departure time. Check-in cutoff is 1 hour.
- Domestic Departures: Recommended time is a minimum 1.5 hours before your departure time. Check-in cutoff is 45 minutes.
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!
How will I know where to meet my shuttle?
Your pick-up location is provided in your confirmation email. Please read it carefully and contact us if you have any questions.

Can you guarantee that I will make my flight at YVR airport?
No, we do not offer this guarantee. We recommend leaving Whistler at least 5 hours before your flight is scheduled for take-off. The typical travel time is 2.5 hours… but our shuttle buses are occasionally experience delays for a wide range of reasons that are beyond our control. For all travel, we recommend a comprehensive travel insurance policy to cover you in the event of missed flights and other issues.
