Getting to Buntzen Lake
(8 - user rating)

Getting to Buntzen Lake from downtown Vancouver would be a breeze if it were not for the infrequency of the service. From downtown give yourself at least an hour and a half. Board the 160 Port Coquitlam Station bus at Bay 5 on Thurlow Street at Pender in the vicinity of Burrard SkyTrain Station. You'll be on the bus for the better part of 45 minutes. Transfer to the C26 Belcarra via Anmore on St. Johns Street at Moray Street in Port Moody. The C26 runs hourly from approximately 6 AM to 8 PM weekdays with a slightly reduced schedule on the weekends. Get off the bus at Anmore Grocery at the gate to Buntzen Lake Park.

From July through September the bus continues into the park, operating as the C26 Buntzen Lake Special. Otherwise you'll have to trudge the final 2 km to South Beach. This routing is bike-friendly.

Be sure to use the planning tools at the TransLink website to create the most efficient schedule for your needs.

For a somewhat faster route, take SkyTrain to Lougheed Town Centre Station and transfer to the 97 B-line. Pickup C26 Belcarra as above in Port Moody.
