Excellent service. We got on the bus on Melville street, one of the Hyatt Regency entrances. Very friendly driver from Rumania. We had a good chat. The bus was very confortable, a and had lavatory facilities. We were dropped at whistler information centre., were the bus stop is. We took the bus back to Vancouver after 5 days. Very convenient way of travelling if you do not want to drive or you do not have a car.

Very efficient service.
Buses are comfortable with wifi access and good seats.
This morning our driver was a lovely gentleman called Singh, he was pleasant, informative and very helpful. The YVR kiosk was able to move me to an earlier departure time as I arrived ahead of schedule. This was done instantly with no hassles.
Definitely recommended this service.

I’ve taken Skylynx twice now & both times had a wonderful experience. I caught the bus from downtown Vancouver. I liked that the driver announced right away that we would be stopping in Squamish briefly and that there was free wifi onboard and a washroom at the back. Seats were comfortable & driver was in control. I would definitely recommend this company to anyone travelling to Whistler.

After getting our luggage quicker than we expected, we ran to the Skylynx counter and they were able to put us on an earlier shuttle to Whistler. This saved us sitting around the YVR airport for 2.5 hours. Our driver was Joe. He was fun, full of local knowledge and trivia. All along the 2.5 drive, he was pointing things out to us. He was even able to direct us to our AirBnB unit from the bus station.

All in all, I highly recommend them. There is no need for a car in Whistler during the winter.

All thanks to our driver Joe who was very friendly and had a great sense of humor. We hit snow along
the way, the conditions deteriorated but Joe kept a safe speed. My husband is a truck driver and
marvelled at Joe’s driving. Thanks again for the wonderful ride and great personality!

Our ride from Whistler to Vancouver was awesome. Our bus driver Joe was extremely entertaining and had a lot of great history about where we were in Whistler and also our journey between Whistler and Vancouver. The ride was extremely smooth and Joe is also an amazing driver. I would highly recommend Skylinx if you need an affordable quick safe ride between YVR/Downtown Vancouver and Whistler.

Skylynx took us from Van. a/p to Whistler and back. Great service. On-time. Drivers were competent, helpful, and enjoyable (running highlights). Busses were state-of-the-art (free WiFi) and clean. We've been riding Whistler busses for about 16yrs. and Skylynx is doing a far better job than their predecessors, whose names I won't mention.

I had no idea that YVR Skylynx only launched in December because it was so well run. The website is easy to use for bookings, the price competitive to other vendors and the actual PU/DO well run. They also have lots of time slots available to suit your calendar.

One point of constructive feedback would be to let customers know if the bus isn't going to be a Skylynx branded one. On the way back from Whistler we booked a late night one and it wasn't branded like the first one, so I only knew it was the right bus because I thought to ask. Including that information in an email would be helpful :)

This service was fantastic - especially if you can get to Burrard metro. If you’re staying at the Hyatt In Vancouver or/ and the Westin in Whistler, it’s effectively a door to door service at an amazing price.

It cost us just CAD $30 pp to include 23kg suitcase, hand luggage and ski bags.
They also have a mini bus service for about $7pp which takes you to other hotels after the coach terminates at Gateway Loop but as the Westin was on their regular stops, there was no extra charge.

We got to know this by booking our transfer using Whistler.com which allowed us to speak to their offices using a UK telephone number which was really useful and the price is the same as booking online. Also, when I changed the time, they did so very quickly, refunding items etc.with no fuss and resending my tickets via email. Very good service.

We were origanilly going with the Shuttle (part of ridebookers) which was door to door at $69pp (+tax) and also have a Uk number to call on but their customer service was not nearly as friendly and quite pressurised as she emphasised it was non refundable, it was a very busy time and they’d already put on a bigger coach. This also meant the transfer would have taken longer by the time they’d picked everyone up and dropped them all off so I‘m glad I went with Skylynx.

The Skylynx coach was modern, had WiFi, toilet and foot rests and our outbound driver was particularly amusing, throwing a few jokes into his normal banter. The drivers did all the heavy lifting of luggage and the two hour drive was very comfortable with stunning scenery.

I should mention that by boarding in Downtown many of the seats had been taken by those coming from the airport but we still got four seats together (make sure one in your party sorts our seats while another sorts out luggage).

Coming back on the 5.40pm we each had a double seat to ourselves so we could crash out after the day's skiing. The concierge at the Westin told us about the 5.40 service. I didn’t see it offered on their website but I heard they’ve got together with another company.

The pain is getting to the Hyatt from the hotel you might be staying in if you have loads of luggage as taxis have a fixed fare (no Uber in Vancouver) and they therefore don’t want to take you short distances. I guess the trick is to take two taxis.

We were impressed by Yvr Skylynx. Their name suggests it’s just an airport run but their downtown service, their competitive price and personalised drop off made it a great choice over other options.

I used Skylynx three times in just over a week and was very pleased with service. I booked return travel from helpful assistant on desk just outside arrivals when I flew in from London for my holiday in Whistler. I also returned with Skylynx from a day trip to Vancouver with my son who is working the ski season. Good flexible schedule and polite helpful drivers in each journey. All three coaches were very clean and comfortable.

It is a little more expensive than some of the other Whistler shuttle buses. But the fact that the drop off/pick up is right at the airport is very convenient. Other services I used it was in downtown Vancouver, which adds an additional train ride into the travel itinerary.

For my shuttle to Whistler, I booked it the night before. I called and the person on the phone was very friendly and competent. He was able to get me scheduled on a shuttle that was the time I needed and wasn't showing up online because it was sold out. When my flight got delayed, it was also very easy to be moved onto a later shuttle on Standby (which was also not available online).

Also coming back from Whistler, I was able to be put on a bus on the spot at the Whistler gateway loop because another person was a no show (I'd missed my original bus by 5 minutes). The driver was very busy but took the time to help me get back to the airport on time. I booked a later shuttle online and he checked me into that and allowed me to ride on his bus. The flexibility/agility saved me on both occasions! Thanks!

Thank you to Skylynx Whistler for coming to our rescue last minute! The local taxi service is USELESS 😡 we prebooked a cab the night before our departure to ensure we were @ station in plenty of time to load & prepare for bus trip but they never showed up- telling us even when called they were on their way but without a big enough car to take all 4 passengers and luggage. Skylynx sent a shuttle and held bus for us! Thank you for helping out in a stressful situation! Can highly recommend. Warm comfortable buses and friendly drivers 😊

I am a new customer to Skylynx and I am extremely happy with the outstanding organisation, efficiency and reliability of your Vancouver to Whistler run. The coach was new, with excellent facilities and above expected comfort. The booking procedure was easy, efficient and accurate. "Good Job Bob" was my driver, his excellent customer communication skills and professionalism is of the highest level. It seems that all of Skylynx drivers are reliable and professional. I would recommend this service.

If this is a new service, then they are getting off to the right start. The ride was smooth and departed from Vancouver airport to Whistler on time as scheduled. I didn't know it would make a stop in Vancouver and then had three stops in the Whistler area. Bus driver was friendly, had a sense of humor in making scheduled announcements, went through safety briefings and loaded and unloaded bags like a pro. I'd highly recommend this service. The drive up to Whistler is so beautiful to see on this bus. The wifi was not working very well so just slept or enjoyed the view.

I rode Skylynx today for the first time from Whistler to Downtown Vancouver and the experience was positive from start to finish. The driver came early to load the bus, gave a good safety briefing, left on time, drove carefully on the road, and got everyone to Vancouver on time. I also had a positive experience when booking the ride online.

First-time user of YVR Skylynx and happy to say that I will do it again. I was meeting some friends in Whistler and flew-in to YVR and was directed by the airport help desk to their YVR Skylynx Whistler shuttle service. I will breakdown my review into a few key areas as I am an avid online reviewer: Location - The kiosk is right by the international arrivals area in the YVR airport and you cannot miss it. It's just tucked away to the right side by the pay phone section. You should see a sign and some service people there to help you out. Service - The agents at the concierge kiosk desk were well-mannered and helpful. I paid for the service on the spot with a credit card hassle-free. The kiosk agent was nice enough to walk me to the bus waiting area after I paid. I suspect this may not happen if the staff are busy with other customers. Bus was on-time and it was a large white motor coach bus with beautiful YVR Skylynx graphics on the side. The bus had nice seats that can recline and a bathroom at the back of the bus. Bus driver was nice and helped load luggage. Price - The price was on the pricier side, but the service was good and the coach was new. I would travel with them again and would recommend this service to others. Wendy
