Frequently Asked Questions

General FAQ

Is there commentary in my language?
Full commentary in English, French, Spanish, German, Japanese, Korean & Mandarin on the clear top convertible Hop-On, Hop-Off busses. Enjoy live commentary in English onboard the San Francisco-style Trolleys. Both bus types (clear top and trolley) will be travelling on all routes.
What do you mean by convertible clear-top buses?
We have installed clear roofs on our open-top buses to allow for stunning views when it’s raining. When the weather is sunny, the roofs come off! In the summer, there is no better way to see the city and park – looking up at the skyscrapers and giant cedars. We promise, you won’t forget it!
What do you mean by San Francisco-style Trolleys?
We have a fleet of trolley-style vehicles that travel the Hop-On, Hop-Off routes along with the convertible clear-top buses. Trolleys are also knows as Streetcars or tram. However in our case, our Trolleys have wheels and a gasoline engine instead of travelling on an electric rail system.
What is the bus frequency at each stop?
In the summer season, our scheduled frequency is every 20 minutes. In the winter season, our scheduled frequency is every 60 minutes. Schedule is subject to change without notice. For the latest information, please contact us at 604-451-1600.
Can I bring a baby stroller on the bus?
Space is limited and we are only able to accommodate collapsible strollers or wheelchairs. We ask that you collapse the equipment and secure it between the seats or at the back of the bus. Please hold your child safely on your lap while on the bus. Guests with collapsible wheelchairs will need to board the bus independently as we do not have a wheelchair lift on the bus.
How long do we spend at each stop?
We spend about 30 minutes at Shannon Falls and about 1.5 hours at the Sea to Sky Gondola. You will have approximately three hours of free time in the Whistler Village.
What can I do during my free time in Whistler Village?
Explore! The Whistler Village is home to many shops, restaurants, museums, and activities. Try an exhilarating sightseeing experience like the Spectacular Glacier Tour. Ask your Guide for recommendations to help you create your perfect day in Whistler.
