Enjoy a carefree mini-vacation with the Vancouver-Seattle shuttle

There’s a NFL football game in Seattle that you really want to see. Or a concert by your favourite band. Perhaps the rain in Vancouver is getting you down and you need a little retail therapy at Seattle’s Premium Outlet Mall. Then again, maybe what you really need is a cheap flight to a sunny destination out of the Bellingham or SeaTac airport.

Why not turn it into a carefree — and car-free — mini-holiday almost from the moment you leave home?

Quick Shuttle makes that easy. From the moment you settle into your plush and spacious seat, you don’t need to worry about a thing. Not only does Quick Shuttle offer numerous departures every day from conveniently located pick-up spots, but buses have their own lane at the border crossing, taking the stress out of choosing which lane will be fastest.

All you need to do is sit back and relax, plug your phone into the seat, hook up to the free Wifi and let your cares disappear until you arrive at your destination. Better still, ask some friends to join you.

In the Lower Mainland there are multiple daily departures from:

• the downtown Vancouver Holiday Inn

• Richmond River Rock Casino and

• Campbell River Store in South Surrey.

The destinations are:

• Bellingham Airport

• Seattle Premium Outlet Mall

• downtown Seattle (by the Washington State Convention Centre) and

• SeaTac airport

Although traffic conditions vary, affecting travel times, it usually takes four hours to get from Vancouver to Seattle Downtown and two hours from Vancouver to the Bellingham airport, including your time at the border. Imagine how enjoyable it will be to spend that time talking with friends or catching up with your reading. You leave the stress of traffic to the experienced and specially trained bus driver.

A trip with Quick Shuttle is also very affordable, especially when you factor in wear and tear on your car. A round trip from Vancouver to Seattle at the commuter rate (departure and return in less than seven days) is only $51 US while the round trip to Bellingham airport is $49 US ($39 US for commuter adult rate). There are also senior and student rates.
