Shuttles & Buses

Free Seasonal Shuttle

Leave your vehicle and get on the bus!  This free summer shuttle runs between Tofino’s Village core and the Cox Bay Visitor Centre. Riders can hop on and off at any stop along the route – and surfboards are welcome too. 


The shuttle is supported through a blend of Resort Municipality Initiative and Federal Gas Tax Agreement funding. Since 2006 the District of Tofino has contracted Tofino Bus to operate the service.


The 2019 Free Summer Shuttle service has concluded. Thank you for jumping on the bus this summer!
