    Hello fellow Greyhound bus travelers:
    I just spoke to Rick, the Regional Manager for Greyhound on Vancouver Island and he confirmed the following details for Nanaimo Greyhound passengers (since the recent relocation of the Greyhound terminal).
    DEPARTURE BAY FERRY TERMINAL - East/West/North bound
    680 Trans-Canada Hwy, Nanaimo  BC  V9S 5R1
    • This is the official Greyhound terminal in Nanaimo now, and the ticket office is inside the BC Ferries terminal on the left hand side.  Tickets are issued for both Greyhound and Tofino bus from this office.
    • Ticket office hours are 8am-6pm Mon-Fri, 365 days of the year.
    • All North/East/West bound passengers embark here, including passengers that have purchased tickets online.   
    DOWNTOWN STOP - South bound only
    Port Place Mall, 650 Terminal Ave, Nanaimo, BC V9R 5E2
    • No ticket sales are offered at this stop.
    • For passengers that have purchased a ticket online and are travelling Southbound, they can embark at this location.  Please have your e-ticket or printed confirmation to board the bus.  
    • Passengers that purchase tickets online receive a confirmation that currently states that they must pick up tickets from the Greyhound terminal on McGarrigle Road prior to boarding.  THIS IS NOT THE CASE!  
    • Passengers can take their printed confirmation email or e-ticket without going to McGarrigle Road and embark at either Departure Bay or Port Place Mall.  
    • Greyhound is in the process of updating this information on the confirmations for tickets purchased online. 


    Happy travels!

      Angie Barnard Ok everyone. I found out one more important thing about the DOWNTOWN STOP today. The 12:30pm departure is on the TOFINO BUS and it does NOT stop downtown Nananaimo. Only GREYHOUND BUS stops downtown. For those that purchased tickets on www.greyhound.c...  more
