    Trip
    Went on a trip to Whistler with my friends. We enjoyed our travel time in the bus. The bus boarding process was very smooth. The toilets were clean and well maintained. Also, the seats were spacious and pretty comfortable. The journey was relaxing from start to end. It was a well-organized, enjoyable journey that I would love to plan again with my friends. Highly recommended Skylynx for anyone looking to create lasting memories with friends on the road.

    Great service to whistler
    The bus trip to Whistler was amazing! The bus was clean, and the driver was really nice and friendly. We walked around the city and saw a lot of Skylynx buses, which seem to run regularly. It's a great company!

    Poor Customer Service
    Used skylynx before multiple times always had a great experience. This time our driver Michael didn’t let me off at the Creekside stop as the couple in front were taking too long and drove off, when we informed him he just said it’s too late even tho he had only moved a few metres up the road. Chose Skylynx over another company because of the ability to get off at creekside. Instead had to get the bus back. Very disappointed.

    Commute of choice!
    Skylynx is my commute of choice to travel from the airport to Whistler and return as well. Skylynx has always gotten me to my destination safely, effectively and affordably. I appreciate the offering of your services.

    Superb!
    What a great ride to Whistler with Skylynx. The bus picks up right on Melville Street conveniently located next to burrard skytrain station so its easy to get to via public transportation. Bus is immaculate, punctual and extremely comfortable. Wifi is fast and having a bathroom on board is such a great amenity to have as the ride up is 2.5 hours. Our driver, David, was superb and professional. I have already bought my return tickets and will be looking to ride with these guys again in the future.

    Very punctual and perfect service!
    The best bus trip we've ever taken. The drivers were amazing, super kind and attentive. Their main code seems to be the punctuality, so you must be 10 minutes before to settle in your seat and pack your bags. If it says you're leaving 8:00 am, it's going to leave 8:00 am, not a single minute more. Amazing service! We will certainly hire them next time.

    Good option for transfers between Vancouver and Whistler
    Courteous, on-time, efficient and value for money. However the pick up point adjacent to Hyatt hotel in Vancouver has no signage at all, which left us uncertain we would be on the bus at all. Please fix this, as everyone who turned up was equally nervous.

    The best way to travel to Whistler
    I took the Skylynx bus service to and from downtown Vancouver to Whistler to attend an art exhibition at the Audain Gallery. It was a seamless and very comfortable way to travel, with clean and luxurious coaches and friendly drivers. I was so glad I chose this mode of travel over driving my own car, as I alighted in the heart of Whistler village just a few steps from the gallery! Consider sitting on the left side of the bus on the way to Whistler and the right side on your return to optimize your view of the spectacular scenery enroute

    Clean, efficient, comfy trip
    Choosing between companies to get me to Squamish for a day trip I settled on Skylynx because of the variety of times available - I like to set my own timetable rather than taking a tour company and I didn’t want to try and cram Whistler and Squamish into one day as some tours seem to. I was impressed with the comfort and relieved to have bathroom facilities. Another coach that pulled in just before mine had ads on all the windows so I was also pleased that Skylynx has lovely big clear windows. Each seat has a tray table and there are seat belts. Aim to sit on the coast side of the bus. Or better still sit, as I did, right up the front behind the driver and you’ll get a fabulous view. Our driver on the way up to Squamish gave some great commentary. Just be warned that once you get to Squamish the local transport is sparse. You will need to get a taxi to the Sea to Sky gondola. The taxis in Squamish are good but busy.

    Reliable
    Quick and easy shuttle that connects Squamish and Whistler. It is really helpful for us Squamish residents that do not have a car and rely on Skylynx to get to and from work. Just wanted to leave my 2 cents as I have been using Skylynx for the past year and it is a really reliable bus service. Also, our driver Cliff is always on time and tries his absolute best as a professional driver!

    They double charged my credit card and would not refund me.
    Check your credit card statements, they double charged me and it was tough to catch . They also make it hard to dispute and you need to go through the credit card company to get your money back. Sketchy at best. I use the bus all the time and prefer Epic Rides, I've never been scammed by them.

    Thank you Manda!
    Our driver Manda was excellent. She was very patient with the passengers and made sure everyone was checked in and the baggage was safely stowed in the bus compartments. She also made safety announcements and informed us the time it would take to get to each destination on the way to Whistler. The bus was on time, super clean and had free wifi. I highly recommend Skylynx and will be looking to ride with them for all my trips to Whistler from now on.

    Affordable comfort
    Great trip. Highly efficient. Very pleasant driver. Weather was rainy and overcast - but I would imagine the views would have been amazing if clear! Very comfortable trip for reasonable cost.

I booked this shuttle service from the Vancouver Airport to Creekside Whistler, for round trip service in December 2019. For our return shuttle service, we were at the pick-up spot along with two other parties waiting for our 10:10 a.m. shuttle. I confirmed the pick-up spot by phone call at 9:55 a.m. Our shuttle never arrived. At 10:20 a.m. I called Skylynx because the shuttle had not arrived. I was told that the driver skipped our stop and was not going to come back for us and to find our own transportation. What? Not coming back? Why did the driver skip us? They never said.

We had to scramble to get a car service, and it was incredibly stressful and the cost was over $300 but we had the two other girls that were also on the "no show" Creekside Shuttle share the car service. We were packed into the uncomfortable car ride and had to make a stop in the city for one of the girls and if our flight had not been delayed we would have missed it. All because the shuttle didn't show and we were not even contacted to let us know, I had to find out by calling. So unprofessional. The other two girls, one of which barely spoke English, would have had a very hard time accomplishing what I was able to accomplish fast enough to get to our necessary points for flights/connections. And, the expense to Skylynx would have been much greater had we taken separate cars ($900+ rather than $300+). You would think they would jump at the chance to reimburse our share of the fare, which was only $114.99.

I requested a refund of the shuttle pre-paid amount and also reimbursement of our share of the cab fare for our trouble. Skylynx refunded the shuttle but refused to cover the $144.99 cab fare.

Terrible customer service all the way around. Very unprofessional, unreliable, and the general manager took 3 weeks to respond to my request for the coverage of the cab fare. Do not take Skylynx.

Hi, We certainly accept that the incident was stressful and of our making. That's why we freely apologized at the time and said we would cover the cost of your taxi. Your credit card was refunded the following day (on December 17) for the entire $207.90 you paid us for transportation. This covers the $114.99 taxi and gives you a bonus of $92.91 which we offer as a further apology for the inconvenience. We hope you might also accept our sincere apology for the error. We expect to do better in future. Thank you - YVR Skylynx

Do yourself a favor and just pay a bit more to rent a car. I was going from Vancouver airport 2 Whistler. We were already an hour behind schedule just leaving the airport. We then went in to the city to pick up MORE passengers for another 30-45 minutes. Over 1.5 hours just sitting in Vancouver. Whistler is still 2 hrs away and there's all these people to drop off at their respective destinations. Never again!

Hi! Sorry for all the inconvenience we may have caused! However we will definitely look into what happened that day because in general we don't have much issues regarding delays unless it's due to unforseeable circumstances. Could i please have your confirmation # to review the situation that day? Nevertheless, we still hope you had a pleasant experience in Whistler :) - YVR Skylynx

The bus driver Michael was scamming passengers for $20 USD to drop them 250m to their accommodation from the bus terminal, even being hesitant to allow our luggage onto the bus until we had paid the $20. And offering to drop other passengers to their accommodation for cash - doesn’t sklylynx have a direct to accomodation service?? He was also a very aggressive driver, tooting and swerving through traffic, as well as using his phone whilst driving. Finally, once we arrived he was throwing everyone’s luggage out onto the road with no care. Not very professional, also we were strongly encouraged to write a review - to which I’ve obliged.

Side note, I have travelled with skylynx before and my experience was vastly different. The driver was helpful and appeared to take pride in their job.

First time going to vancouver/whistler so booked for a trip from the airport to my hotel (door to door service) at the upper village since I didnt know my way around whistler.

The boot is easy to find as it is next to the mechanical staircase just as you exit the baggage claim area.

On my way back I had to reschedule my trip back to vancouver due to COVID-19. I just emailed them and in less than an hour I had a new booked trip.

While going from vancouver to whistler, the driver made an smalled guided tour about the city and the road to whistler, which was very nice.

For some reason wifi onboard never worked for me.

Nice overall service, would definitely use again.

I had a great experience as I met Mohammed (Mo) who was super helpful and kind and even dropped me in front of my hotel Fairmont Chateau Whistler as there was only one couple and I left on board. I didn’t even have cash to him as I tipped last person all I had and asked him if I could Venmo or Zelle him but he refused and just wished me a great trip. Honestly, if you’re thinking about transport from Vancouver International Airport to Whistler this couldn’t be any easier and only $47 vs car service at airport was charging $400 Canadian. Plus if you have Mo driving he explains like a tour guide as get to the destination. First class all the way! Thanks again Mo! Until next time.

As we were getting into Vancouver airport from Brisbane at 6am, we booked the 9am bus as we didn't know how long customs was going to take us and also the chore of finding the YVR SKylinx stop at the airport.
After getting in 30 minutes early on the flight and breezing through customs / immigration, we followed the signs to the Skylinx counter and it hadn't opened yet.
When the attendant arrived a few minutes later and opened up, we asked if we could get the 6am bus to Whistler instead. He put us on the waiting list and luckily two spots opened up so we could get the early bus which was nice.
As we got on the bus, my wife discovered she had lost her phone. The driver was kind enough to hold the bus a few minutes for her to get off and find it. Luckily she found it quickly, got back on the bus and we left a few minutes late from the airport.
The bus was very comfortable and had good legroom. The drivers are all locals and can drive accordingly to the conditions with a lot of experience. They give a good commentary as well.
We stopped briefly in Vancouver downtown and the bus was very full after that for the trip to Whistler. The scenery along the way was nice as you pass along the coastline and then up into the mountains. The snow always makes things look nice as well.
We had a quick stop at Squamish, then Creekside and then stopped at the Gateway loop bus stop, which is central Whistler.
The service is direct and relatively quick, about 3hrs. It is a really handy way to get up to the mountain from the airport or downtown Vancouver.
I highly recommend it as it takes the stress out of having to hire a car, navigate your way there and back and get parking wherever. Its also pretty cost effective which is great for a budget conscious traveler.
I'd recommend this if you need an easy way to get to the mountain.

Booking with Skylynx was quick, finding the bus was easy and the ride up was comfortable. Bus driver was courteous and made sure every passenger was taken care of during the loading process. Views from the road was beautiful and we got there with 5 minutes to spare.

Easily the best bus service I have taken since the pandemic. Good job YVR Skylynx! Highly recommend.

Apart from how smooth and convenient the driving and journey was, I would like to personally thank one of the drivers, MA, for his consideration and understanding in putting me on an earlier bus from the airport. I had purchased a 6 pm ticket and If he did not give me permission to be seated on the 3 pm bus, I would have had to wait an additional three hours to get the next bus. Apart from his kindness, he drove very well and it was a smooth and beautiful journey to Squamish. Additionally, he was very helpful in loading and unloading the luggage. MA, thank you so much once again, I will definitely be using this service again and will be recommending it to peers. 5 stars.

My family and I had the most amazing experience with Skylynx. They were punctual, bus was clean and new and we got to Whistler safely. The driver really went above and beyond to make sure all of our bags were loaded into the bus and gave us suggestions on where to eat in Whistler since we flew in from Australia.

My daughter even fell asleep most of the way. Prices were very reasonable and my daughter rode free. The views are splendid. I recommend Skylynx bus service.
