1- From where can I take the bus?
150 Station St, Vancouver, BC V6A 4C7
2- What should I expect during the ride?
Riding with Greyhound means you are using commercial ground transportation. You could be sitting next to someone you don’t know and the seats are not assigned but they are in first come first serve basis unless you pay an extra fee (See counter agent for prices). In every Greyhound bus, you will have the following amenities; wi-fi, lavatory, power outlets and overhead bins to store your hand luggage.
Keep in mind that since you are using these types of service the drive will not be making stops on the way to your destination, you will have to use the onboard lavatory.

Depending on where you are heading you will be dropped either at the local bus terminal or at greyhound service drop-off point. If you are arriving in Vancouver you will be dropped at the following address; 150 Station St, Vancouver, BC V6A 4C7.
4- Which hotel do you recommend?
If you want to go with something more classic and a brand that already made its mark in the hotel business you can go with the magnificent Fairmont Pacific Rim which is located right in front of the Port Authority Cruises terminal.

Pretty much any hotel in Vancouver has a view to offering and will be around 200-300$ on average per night.
5- Best ways to get around Vancouver.
The bus system runs 24h so that being said you can get pretty much anywhere at any time. I would suggest using the Skytrain if you are looking at spending less time in transit. If you are looking to go up to North Vancouver you can use the Seabus that runs from the port authority.

7- The Tourika 72 hour itinerary
– After your arrival in “VanCity”, you should head to Stanley Park for a nice walk with a freshly brewed coffee from one of the millions of coffee shops around. Then I suggest you rent a bike from one of the nearby bike rental agency and go ride around. Then I suggest you end the day with a nice supper at the nearby resto/pub called Chewies Steam & Oyster Bar in Coal Harbour
– Head to Granville Island where all the fun is located. You should visit the beer brewery and then enjoy a nice variety of beer samples. Next, head back downtown and visit the iconic Gastown.
– You will go for a once in a lifetime adventure at Capilano Suspension Bridge. After this amazing experience you could go to the Vancouver Aquarium and if you want to step up your game you could also buy a sunset flight with the Harbour Air located near Canada Place.
