What's New at Islandlink
VICTORIA EXPRESS BUS - Islandlink's twice daily express service to Victoria is now a regular fixture and has become really popular with our customers travelling to and from the Provincial capital. The current schedule will continue until Summer 2013 when, thanks to increasing demand, it will increase significantly in frequency to five times daily!
UPDATE: These services now stop in Duncan, Mill Bay and at Spencer Road in Langford.
ISLAND EXPRESS BUS
- Islandlink bus services from Campbell River, Oyster River, Black Creek, Merville, Courtenay, Cumberland, Buckley Bay (Denman & Hornby Islands), Fanny Bay, Qualicum Beach, French Creek and Parksville have become essential transportation links over the past fifteen years for thousands of Islanders and their visitors. In Summer 2012 we offered four round-trip services daily, this winter (2012/2013) it is three round-trips daily, and commencing next summer 2013, it will be FIVE round-trips daily to and from the Departure Bay ferry terminal in Nanaimo. Demand for these services increases every year as it becomes less and less affordable to drive your car, particularly when a ferry sailing is involved in your journey.
- In Summer 2013 Islandlink will operate ‘every other day’ to and from Port Hardy, Northern Vancouver Island. This new service will commence on May 19th and continue until September 29th . It will be ideal for foot passengers on the BC Ferries Inside Passage Day Cruise between Port Hardy and Prince Rupert who require connecting bus transportation on Vancouver Island.
Islandlink specialises in providing bus services for ferry foot passengers at the Departure Bay Ferry Terminal in Nanaimo – we have been doing it for FIFTEEN years and we thank everybody who has supported us since 1998!
- AIRPORT LINK BUS - Islandlink service on the Mainland is now finished. As previously reported, the more than cost-competitive Skytrain service to YVR together with improved transit ‘Blue Bus' service at Horseshoe Bay into downtown Vancouver has made it impossible to continue with a viable Islandlink operation to downtown and beyond to Richmond/YVR. We sincerely thank everybody who has used this service over the past 10 years, but regret we cannot continue it.
Our services on Vancouver Island are completely unaffected by this decision.
