From Pike Place eats to The Flora Bakehouse, to every new restaurant in between, a trip to Seattle is always a good idea if you’re hungry. Fortunately for Vancouverites, FlixBus just announced the launch of their new route between Vancouver and Seattle.
Best of all? Tickets start at $11.99 one-way! Yup, you read that right. A round-trip to Seattle costs less than a tank of gas.
FlixBus first entered the Canadian market in April of this year, offering express routes from Toronto to Ottawa, as well as elsewhere in Ontario. Since Greyhound Canada scrapped nearly all of its remaining routes and operations last year, there was definitely a need for a new cross-border bus service here in western Canada.
In addition to the Vancouver-Seattle route are connections to Everett and Bellingham, so the Washington State adventure continues.

As you can probably guess, spots are already filling up pretty quickly. The earliest available departure date from Vancouver is Thursday, June 2nd, so be sure to snag your tickets ASAP.
FlixBus offers free Wi-Fi, extra legroom, low-cost snacks and drinks, plug sockets, and plenty of room for your luggage on all of their buses. Oh, and a washroom – so no need to deprive yourself of water on your trip.
Service will run between Thursdays and Mondays, and boarding will be at Richards Street outside of Waterfront Station.
Keep an eye out on FlixBus’ socials for further updates regarding service and future routes.
Catch ya on the next bus to Seattle, Vancouver!
