Whistler Transit Services - Bus and Taxi

You don't need a vehicle when you stay in Whistler. Explore the neighbourhoods by bus, free shuttle, bike or on foot via the paved Valley Trail or use the 24-hour taxi service. With additional services during peak season, express buses to popular destinations, a family travel program, and the ability to take your bike or skis along, getting around Whistler is simple.
