Jump to: navigation, search

The Whistler Transit System and Pemberton Valley Transit System, formerly known as Whistler and Valley Express (WAVE), serves Whistler and Pemberton Valley in British Columbia. Funding is provided by the Resort Municipality of Whistler and the Squamish-Lillooet Regional District. Planning and administrative services are provided by BC Transit. Service is operated by Pacific Western Transportation.[1]

Before 2009, all units were painted in WAVE's unique paint scheme. WAVE was the only system in the BC Transit network to have its own livery.
