Getting from Butchart Gardens to Victoria

I'm visiting the Butchart Gardens in August and I'm planning on getting a taxi from the ferry terminal to the gardens to save time over transit. I'm then a little confused as to what my options are for getting to Victoria where I'm staying the night. I believe there is a CVS bus but I'm unsure whether you can use that if you're not part of the tour originating in Victoria, and if so where you get these from? I'm keen to avoid another taxi because of the expense, so if there is another option that would be good. Many thanks.

it might be a good idea to contact CVS directly http://www.cvstours.com/contact-us/ for a specific answer to your question.

I phoned CVS. They say customers have to pick up their tix in downtown Victoria, so they could not do a one way ticket.

You can take public transit from Butchart to downtown. On a weekday afternoon, you would take the #75 Downtown Bus to the Inner Harbour. 50 minutes. $2.50 exact change in coins.
