Birch Bay Square management, Bob’s Burger and Brew and the 2010 World Games Souvenirs and Museum have joined to offer shuttle service from the Square to the SkyTrain King George station, said Mike Harward, general manager of the Party Shuttle at the Square.

Vans take U.S. passengers to the border at the truck crossing, where they disembark for customs and immigration processing. They walk across the border to vans waiting on the B.C. side that drop passengers off at the King George station for SkyTrain with service to Vancouver. The trip from the Square to Vancouver takes a little over an hour, Harward said.

Currently, vans depart hourly from Birch Bay Square from 6 a.m. to 11 a.m., then every 2-3 hours or on request. Return runs depart from the SkyTrain station at 10 p.m., 12 a.m., 2 a.m., and 3:30 a.m.This schedule may expand if demand increases. Make reservations online at www.BirchBaySquare.com.

“Over the last three days, 45-50 passengers rode the shuttle,” said Harward on February 15.

The fare is $50 per person for the round trip, including secured parking in a lot west of the Jack in a Box restaurant. This space is outside the paved parking area of the Square.
