Kamloops leading transportation provider commences service to/from Vancouver International Airport
TasteFull Excursions Inc., the Thompson Valley’s premier shuttle provider for Sun Peaks Resort has responded to the demise of Greyhound Bus Line by increasing their services to include both shared seating and private charter rates with daily/weekly schedules to a myriad of locations including the most requested route: to/from Vancouver International Airport.
Gordon Stamp-Vincent, Director of Shuttle Services began to feel the impact of Greyhound’s demise early this summer. “The bulk of our business is moving people to/from Sun Peaks Resort from the Kamloops Airport. Many of these guests arrive via Vancouver or Calgary from as far away as Europe, Australia, US and eastern Canada. With the challenge of winter travel, we have historically assisted the airlines with ensuring stranded winter travellers make their vital flight connections by transporting them to Vancouver or Kelowna. Basically, we are simply expanding this level of service to become an integral part of our schedule – and identifying it as TasteFull Transportation.” The company has hired additional professional drivers who are trained with the Super Host program and are familiar with the challenges of winter driving.
“This year already, we have confirmed bookings on behalf of international travel agencies with visitors arriving in Vancouver who prefer driving into the Kamloops area for both the convenience and the peace of mind of having all of their luggage remaining with them,” he continues. Their fleet of vehicles are equipped with secure rear luggage compartments, multi-zone temperature controls, complimentary WIFI, charging outlets for both Apple and Android devices, plus blankets and pillows for the longer trips.
Most importantly, TasteFull Transportation has all of the required licensing as regulated by the National Safety Board and the Passenger Transportation Authority of British Columbia. “These past few years the transportation industry has been inundated with newcomers who have not always educated themselves with all of the requirements to operate under the high standards that have been set by the government.”
Stamp-Vincent states. “It is imperative for anyone climbing onboard a shuttle or other modes of transportation ensure that both the driver and the vehicle are safety-certified. Not only does your personal safety depend on it, but insurance coverage could be affected if there are any unfortunate incidents on the road.”
Focusing on safety, service and convenience – TasteFull Transportation is positioned to be the first-choice in transportation after the demise of Greyhound Bus Lines. Sun Peaks Resort already recognizes the company as their official shuttle service provider, travel agencies have increased their bookings, and now everyday travellers can enjoy the expertise the company and their team provide.
