Greyhound Canada has confirmed that their Pemberton to Whistler schedule will be reduced.

As of November 5th one schedule in each direction between Pemberton and Whistler will be cancelled due to low ridership.

Peter Hamel, Regional Vice-President, Western Canada, Greyhound Canada says that currently each trip only sees an average of 5.7 passengers, and that the decision to reduce route frequency was due to direct competition from BC Transit.

According to Greyhound, BC Transit is running a subsidized route from Pemberton to Whistler with a fare of $2.50 that feeds into Greyhound’s service. A service which is due to increase by one schedule on November 1st for Whistler, Squamish and Vancouver destinations.

As of November 5th there will be just three daily schedules to Pemberton from Vancouver, departing Whistler Village  at 11:15, 13:45 and 17:15. Currently only one route is being serviced to Mount Currie, however the company plans to discontinue that route pending approval by the BC Passenger Transportation Board.
