Bus Trips

Bus Trip Advice Arrive 15 minutes prior to departure. Pay attention to when and where the bus will pick you up for the trip home. The bus will not wait for any late-comers. Trip leaders will make every effort to locate you but the bus will leave as scheduled. If you are not returning with the bus, please sign off with the trip leader. Return times are approximate. Please make travel arrangements for returning home with this in mind. Dress appropriately for the weather and trip. We do not assign seats. Trip leaders will assist those with mobility concerns. When you register, inform the front desk if you need to bring a wheelchair or a walker. We require a minimum two week notification to arrange wheelchair transportation. We do our best to make the trip accessible and accommodate participation. For trips to the USA, bring your valid travel documentation (passport, enhanced drivers licence). It is your responsibility to buy extra medical insurance. Be aware that laws prohibit some merchandise from being brought back across the border. BC Ferries offers a discount to seniors over 65. If you are under 65, you must pay the full ferry fare. On Dine Out! trips, the main focus is the restaurant. Opting out of the meal for the secondary trip feature is NOT permissible. Substitutions made on your own are not permitted. If you are unable to make the trip, please notify the front desk to confirm alternate arrangements.

Please take note of Glen Pine Extended Parking requirements. You may obtain a parking pass in advance of your trip or if you leave your License Plate # at time of registration, a parking pass will be made up in advance as long as the trip leaves during regular front desk hours. NOTE: Bus trip pick up spots are at Dogwood and Glen Pine (Spirit Square on Burlington Drive across from City Hall, meet in the Hub when Glen Pine is open). These are the only designated stops or pick ups. Depending on the destination, the bus will pick up at Dogwood or Glen Pine first. Prices include school bus transportation unless otherwise stated. REFUND POLICY: Full refund shall be issued if the request is made 5 days in advance of the bus trip. No refund under 5 days. As many trips are prepaid, we need ample time to find a replacement for last minute cancellations. If a bus trip is full, place your name on the wait list. There is a strong possibility that another bus can be booked or another day planned. For theatre performances, we try our best to have you sit with whom you wish but there is no guarantee. If you need seating assistance, please speak to your designated trip leaders before boarding the bus. They can be identified by their name tags.
