About West Coast Shuttle

Our bus service operates from April 15th to October 15th, Monday to Sunday.

If you need to be picked up at any time that is not listed in our itinerary/schedule, please contact us and we can examine the request.

April 15th to October 15th is typically when most of the trails and parks are open here on Vancouver Island. The trails generally close for the winter in late October early November, with the exception of a few trails.

Our bus service takes you right to the beginning of the trail where you begin, and we also pick you up right where you finish, plain and simple. Our service is reliable and dependable. We take the trouble and hassle out of finding the trail so you do not have to worry.

Our bus is always clean and in good working order, It is government inspected every 6 months to make sure it is safe and in good running order. The bus has heat for those cold rainy days, and it also has air conditioning for those uncomfortable hot days.

As you will see in our schedule, our bus operates every day of the week with the exception of Sundays. The service is occasionally late as we have to wait for some backpackers who may arrive late. Please do your best to arrive on time so that we can keep a prompt schedule.

We will never leave you behind.

Important: If you require transportation to any trail on Vancouver Island not listed in our itinerary, please contact us and we can examine the request. Additionally, if you have not made arrangements for your return trip, or you have missed your pick-up with another company, call us.

West Coast Shuttle is a small family run business, locally owned and operated. Our vans are comfortable, clean, air-conditioned, and are mechanically inspected regularly for safety. So, sit back and enjoy the ride knowing you are in good hands.
