A new service is launching this July that takes carpooling to a whole new level. Pacific Commuter is a motor coach program that will drive members to and from locations in Langley and Surrey to three destinations in Vancouver.

Available Monday to Friday, Pacific Commuter will do pick-ups at 7:25am and 7:35am, and return from Vancouver at 5:05pm, 5:15pm, and 5:25pm. Locations include 68 Ave at Fraser Hwy, 21277 56 Avenue, 550 West Cordova, 1088 Burrard, and 1500 West Georgia.

The buses are equipped with free WIFI, reclining chairs, a luggage compartment, a kitchen area and a bathroom. Commuters could toast a bagel and get an hour’s worth of work completed all before getting to the office.

Monthly membership is available starting at $495 a month and an annual membership is $395 a month. Imagine what you’ll save on gas, parking, and time spent on the road. All new memberships include a one week, risk-free trial.

    Wow this would be perfect for me!! I spend $400-$500 in parking + gas commuting to my job every month in DT Van from Surrey!

    It sounds pretty good. Are there other pickup locations?

  6. Darian says:

    Reuben,

    Thanks for all the great comments.

    @Reuben As we get more members that will influence where we do picks up and drop offs. When you register you submit your home address and work address and we will do our best to accomodate.

  7. Chris says:

    And if you don’t win the one-month pass. Don’t worry, you can still try it free for one week!

  8. Stephanie says:

    AMAZING! Ive been waiting for something like this forever. Surrey to Vancouver is painful. They should also offer a discount for a few months so people can try it out before going into the year membership!

    It’s a bit steep in price but such a cool idea. I commute over three hours everyday by bus and it’s terrible!
