The Bowen Island vanpool has been running for over twenty years.

Originally part of the Jack Bell Rideshare Association, it is now run by a private group of individuals. Our goal is to maintain a commute that is affordable, convenient and environmentally aware.



  • The van goes from Bowen to UBC every weekday morning on the 6:20 sailing, returning on the 5:45 sailing. We arrive at UBC at approximately 7:30.

  • In the morning, riders can find the van on the ferry or in our assured loading parking spot in front of the General Store.

  • Departure from UBC is 4:20. The common pick up spot is in front of the Alumni Centre, but other arrangements are possible.

  • Pick up time downtown is 4:45pm in front of Pacific Centre (Georgia and Howe).

  • We have a WhatsApp message group used for communication. This is the most efficient way for us to communicate amongst the group and riders are encouraged to join.
