Powell River YVRCLIPPER Bus & Ferry.


Expediting efforts are being made in January to connect Powell River to the Lower Mainland.

A subject Cat 1 Vessel has been located in Ready to Go condition for the proposed Saltery Bay - Earls Cove Route. Negotiations are ongoing - fingers crossed for March / April.

Our principle focus is to first close the gap for the foot passenger travelling between Powell River and Vancouver. Therefore we must get the YVRCLIPPER BUS operating between Earls Cove & Langdale.

To be cost effective - the CLIPPER BUS will not sail on the Ferries.

The Translink Horseshoe Bay Express (257) connects all of Vancouver, including the Airport - in close to the same time as if we where to put the Clipper Bus on the ferry ($$$).

Locals will initially still be at the process & mercy’ of Translink (Route 12) to get to Saltery Bay - but at least the connection to Vancouver is restored.

Therefore the first order of
expanding the YVRCLIPPER BUS is to negotiate with Translink and BC Ferries to provide a consistent service between Powell River & Saltery Bay - or for YVRCLIPPER to provide the service - per local (shuttle) bus.

EST. FARE:

$10 - Translink Powell River to Saltery Bay (Est.)
$15 - BC Ferries; Saltery Bay - Earls Cove
$40 - YVRCLIPPER BUS; Earls Cove - Langdale
$15 - BC Ferries; Langdale - Horseshoe Bay
$10 - Translink Bus / Routes for Vancouver

$90 - RETURN between P. River & Vancouver.



Summary:

First.
Establish the YVRCLIPPER BUS between Earls Cove & Langdale. Stops at Pender Harbour, Sechelt (under review), Gibsons - and into Langdale.

Negotiate with Translink for a consistent schedule (i.e. not having to book in advance) to serve Saltery Bay for at least 3 sailings (Morning, Afternoon, Evening). BC Ferries will also be contacted.

Second.
Establish or Expand the YVRCLIPPER BUS between LUND - POWELL RIVER - SALTERY BAY to connect with the BC FERRIES SAILINGS.

Third.
Introduce the YVRCLIPPER FERRY Service between Saltery Bay - Earls Cove to connect with the Gibsons - Horseshoe Bay or Vancouver runs. Thus combining both the YVRCLIPPER BUS & FERRIES, permitting more flexible, improved and additional sailings.
