Free Shuttle To Cypress Provincial Park
Parkbus operates bus services to National and Provincial Parks from major cities across Canada.
The shuttle service will return this summer to operate free transportation between Vancouver and Cypress Provincial Park.
Buses will depart from MEC Vancouver Store (130 West Broadway) at 9:40 a.m., as well as at the Bank of China (near the Burrard SkyTrain station) in the morning at 10:00 a.m. . Likewise, the buses will return in the late afternoon to the same spots at 4:20 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. respectively.
While these shuttle services are free, you must reserve your seat in advance with a valid credit card. Reservations for this year’s free shuttle service can be made beginning mid-June.
If you need to cancel your reservation, you must do so within 48 hours to not be charged a fee. Furthermore, a $45 refundable deposit is required and passengers should know that this is NOT a guided tour.
Parkbus will take you to some of Canada’s most beautiful parks and trails, but it’s up to you to stay safe. For safety tips, visit their website here.
