Luckily, for those without a car in Vancouver, it’s fairly easy to access some amazing nature trails with transit. However, if you want to get out of the city to experience a whole new level of nature, it gets a bit trickier.

Enter: Parkbus, a genius idea to transport passengers to areas that are typically not accessible unless you have a car. It’s “Canada’s bus to the great outdoors!”

Now operating in cities across Canada, the Vancouver Parkbus offers return trips to four of the best parks in our province. They also offer group hike activities (which are especially good if you’re afraid of bears) and a new “Yoga in the Wild” class!

When it comes to close proximity to nature, Vancouver shines as one of the best cities in the world that offers hiking opportunities that are accessible without needing a car. From Grouse Mountain to Deep Cove’s Quarry Rock and a few other options in between, it’s easy to escape into nature with just the price of a bus ticket.

However, despite being so close to Vancouver, most provincial parks in the Sea-to-Sky Corridor have no transit options available. If you want to access the jaw-dropping beauty of Garibaldi, you’re going to have to rely on a car to get you there – until now!

Parkbus Vancouver will be piloting a new direct connection to Gaibaldi, Alice Lake, Shannon Falls, and Stawamus Chief Provincial Parks from Vancouver for two days only on August 20 and September 10. This is your chance to escape to the wild for a day of adventure, just a short bus ride from Vancouver!
