History

  • Pacific Coach Lines (1984) Ltd. was established on April 1, 1984, by 3 partners: Gordon Levett, Wally Watson & Bjorn Bjornson when the Government of BC privatized Pacific Coach Lines (1979) Ltd.
  • Sold to John Horning in 1989, then to Dewey Go Dee & Partners in 1999.
  • In June 2002 inaugurated service from Nanaimo to Vancouver via Duke Point BC Ferry route. This service was cancelled in April 2003 due to lack of passengers. In July 2008 this service was resumed, but was discontinued again in 2009 due to low ridership.
  • On October 1, 2007, Pacific Coach Lines assumed operation of the Vancouver Airport to Whistler service, which was branded "Whistler SkyLynx". Operated in conjunction with Perimeter Transportation's existing YVR-Whistler Express until Perimeter ceased operations in November 2008.
  • BC Ferries Connector service to Victoria ended on January 31, 2016; contract awarded to Wilson's Transportation.
  • Vancouver Airport - Whistler SkyLynx service ended on December 31, 2018; contract awarded to Universal Coach Line.
  • Pacific Coach ceased all operations on March 31, 2019.
