My wife and I are getting real excited about our first trip to Whistler. We arrive (from the states) at YVR on Saturday, Feb. 16th at 1:00 p.m. We are staying at the Aava.
Based on information gathered from this great forum site, we decided to take a shuttle/bus to and from Whistler. It looks like we have three, reasonably priced options....PCL, Ridebooker or Perimeter. I have been on all three websites, but would like some input from people who are familiar with these companies and mode of transportation. Do all of these stop in Vancouver on the way to Whistler? Do any go direct to Vancouver?
The PCL and Perimeter websites indicate departures at 2 and 4 p.m. from YVR. I do not think we can make it through customs for the 2 p.m. departure, so we are looking at 4 P.M. for those two. Ridebooker does not have set schedules, but has a maximum 1-hour guarantee if booked in advance, so we may be looking at a 3 p.m. departure. Can someone please elaborate on the differences in transportation mode for those three options (big bus, little bus, van, rickshaw)?
Which would you choose?
