Professional and nice drivers. Safe trip! I asked for switching the departure time ahead, and the driver easily did it by clicking his iPad with no extra charge. The schedule platform they are using is awesome! But I realized the bus was only 50% occupied, hopefully the bus company is not suffering a loss.

I had a very nice experience with Skylynx. Vancouver airport route to Whistler. And I highly recommend it. They send a reminder the night before the trip, prompt response for all inquiries from the customer service. Very courteous staff

Great bus service from Whistler to Vancouver. Driver was polite and helpful , the coach was clean, with wifi, phone chargers and a toilet. 3hours and we were at Vancouver Airport from the centre of Whistler Would most definitely recommend!
Skylynx, is a fantastic option for YVR-Van-Squamish-Whistler! I appreciated their timely and friendly service. Sherry is a fantastic driver who also gave lots of facts and info for tourism on route. Thank you Sherry for the safe trip.

Always great service. They have the latest bus back to Whistler which is great for me when I just want to spend a day in the city
17 June 2019
Very nice busses! Drivers are great. I love that they offer multiple stops and pick up locations.
13 June 2019
I booked this bus service to Whistler and I am so glad I did. They were on time and the check in was efficient. The drivers were the best. They do a brief safety talk which I have never experienced with other companies. I highly recommend this company to anyone who visits Whistler from Vancouver.
04 June 2019
The riding is smooth and graceful. When I emailed to change my booing for future use, I soon got their reply and good service. For a new visitor like me, they win my trust.
03 June 2019
Clean bus and great drivers. The departure and drop off were on time. The wifi could have been a bit faster, but anyways it was a really good experience
29 May 2019
Took the Skylynx from Vancouver airport to Whistler. Was lucky enough to sit right in front and the views absolutely awed me! The driver was awesome too, he pointed out things that were coming up so I could get my camera ready :) The return trip to the airport was just as amazing. Comfortable, very clean and on time. The price is very reasonable too! I would definitely travel with YVR Skylynx again.

Easy to book online, pick up was straight forward at the downtown stop and the drivers checked us in easily on their iPads. Both of our drivers were polite, courteous and helpful. Good price for a return trip, with WiFi and a bathroom. Journey was smooth and of course there was stunning scenery! Would definitely use Skylynx again.
The bus was punctual and we had a pleasant ride all the way from Whistler to the Vancouver Airport, Thank you for a job well done!
28 May 2019
I've taken Skylynx from Vancouver to Squamish and back a few times now and have always enjoyed the ride. The drivers have always been professional, friendly and courteous, the busses have power outlets and wifi, they're always on time too. Very much recommend if you're taking the bus!
27 May 2019
I took a round trip with YVR Skylynx from downtown Vancouver to Whistler this past Saturday and it was excellent.The ride was especially convenient for me because the downtown stop is located right out the door of the hotel I was staying at, the Regency Hyatt on Burrard St.I took the 7 am departure from Van to Whistler. The bus was nearly empty, so it was quiet, peaceful and I was able to get a sleep on the way up.The bus arrives at the bus loop at the base of Whistler village. The drop location provides excellent access to most of Whistler's sites including restaurants, hotels and the ski hill itself.After a muddy day of mountain biking, I returned to Vancouver on the 2 pm departure from Whistler. The driver was extra accommodating considering I wasn't extraordinarily clean. He allowed me on the bus early to change in the bus' lavatory.The bus itself was quite nice. Everything was spotlessly clean and comfortable. The onboard amenities are limited to the lavatory and wifi. The wifi was ok to send messages and check email but not fast enough to do other things that require more speed.In the end, the rides were comfortable, quiet, and on time... all very good things.I highly recommend YVR Skylynx for your travels between Vancouver and Whistler.
17 May 2019
Great service. I got the 6:30pm back to Whistler. This company is the only one to provide buses at the time. Most stop at 4:30pm
very easy website to book travel, clear information re pickup etc received upon booking. Bus arrived forpickup on time, bus clean, WiFi available, seats comfortable. Driver friendly, competent. Arrived on time.Return trip the same, very good service, would use again
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.
15 May 2019
Bus was on time, driver very kind. It was just little bit colder in the inside because of air-condition.
14 May 2019
Super comfy ride and very convenient!
Bus was comfortable, and the trip was quite enjoyable. Drivers were professional and courteous. Will definitely utilize their services again!
11 May 2019
Totally awesome experience. Would recommend it to anyone. Both drivers were excellent and the coaches were very comfortable.
09 May 2019
Sent Grandparents/Kids to Squamish to meet us for camping trip - a bit of a challenge as grandparents don't speak English, kids need directions at destination. Brilliant service, clean/modern & fully-equipped buses, courteous/attentive drivers in both directions. The only thing I would wish for is - a bit of license-flexibility for these guys (would be great if they could drop at S2S Gondola or Porteau Cove as well).
04 May 2019
We travelled from YVR to Squamish BC our bus driver Joe was fantastic and a lot of fun. He explainedwhere we were and the sites to look out for on the way. He was very engaging with all!! Thanks for acomfortable, fun and informative trip.
27 April 2019
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.
19 April 2019
WiFi worked, bus was comfortable and the driver was personable. A good way to get up to Whistlerwithout the hassle of driving.
31 March 2019
I like the more comfortable seating than other bus companies and it's good value for $30
28 March 2019
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.
26 March 2019
The service is superb.
25 March 2019
Efficient, convenient schedule and pickup locations (esp at YVR), reasonable pricing, courteous employees. Five stars!
22 March 2019
Driver was excellent journey very smooth
21 March 2019
Skylynx has very convenient times and pickup locations with amazing customer service! Oh, and the best buses for the best price.
18 March 2019
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.
16 March 2019
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.
Thank you, we had a great trip, and I particularly want to commend our driver - onthe 11 o'clock from Whistler to YVR. He was so friendly, charming and helpful, and he really made the trip great!
All thanks to our driver Joe who was very friendly and had a great sense of humor. We hit snow alongthe way, the conditions deteriorated but Joe kept a safe speed. My husband is a truck driver andmarvelled at Joe’s driving. Thanks again for the wonderful ride and great personality!
15 March 2019
Very nice bus driver, he made my day :-)
It was perfect! I will definitely recommend to my friends. Thank you and Good job!!!
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.
14 March 2019
Perfect and seamless. Great service.
12 March 2019
I took a risk booking as it was a new service, but I was very pleased. Great service - on time, friendlydrivers, WiFi that works, comfy seats.

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 :)
09 March 2019
They were lovely! Would ride again
08 March 2019
Comfortable ride. Punctual. Good service. Fair price.
04 March 2019
Prompt excellent serviceArrived exactly on time to pick up. We arrived early to airport. Clean coach.Nice driver.Would recommend.
03 March 2019
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.
27 February 2019
Polite & courteous driver. Smooth ride. Very happy customer 🙂👍
24 February 2019
Used the service a few times now - every time above expectation... Thank you to the Skylynx team!
We took the Skylynx from downtown Vancouver to Whistler and return to the airport. The ride was beautiful and easy. The driver was very professional and scheduled ran on time.
22 February 2019
I live part time in Whistler with my husband. We share a vehicle and are back and forth to the city. Discovered this service and was impressed with the buses and customer service . Will definitely ride with them again.
21 February 2019
Amazing driver and very nice bus. Driver made an extra stop for me which was very nice. Everything in time and smooth ride
20 February 2019
Very comfortable sits, enough place, nice Wi-Fi.
17 February 2019
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!
15 February 2019
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 😊
11 February 2019
Had a very pleasant round trip transfer with YVR skylynx to Whistler. The drivers were friendly, and followed the speedlimit the whole way. Thank you.
07 February 2019
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.
06 February 2019
Travelled to and from Whistler. Service was punctual, coach was comfortable and driver was helpful. Enjoyed the trip!
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.
04 February 2019
Great service! Pick up was on time, comfortable and friendly. Will ride every time from whistler to YVR
Great service, pick up from Whistler to Vancouver airport.
28 January 2019
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.
22 January 2019
Skylynx provided us with value for money, reliable transport to whistler and the airport. I'd travel with them anytime.
10 January 2019
Very prompt pick up and drop off. Friendly & chatty drivers. Big clean & safe buses with wifi & washroom
09 January 2019
Had a very pleasant experience going to Whistler on Sunday. Clean bus, on time, and excellent/very friendly driver. I would definitely be taking the YVR Skylynx bus to Whistler again.
01 January 2019
Great service despite all the craziness in the holiday season. Would definitely use them again in the future. Staff was helpful and polite.
23 December 2018
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
