For $40 you can purchase a return trip ticket on a special IKEA Richmond bus that leaves from downtown Victoria on select Saturdays. Included in your IKEA trip package is a $40 coupon off purchases of $250 or more as well as a 15% discount at the IKEA restaurant. The bus can accommodate most cash and carry purchases with the exception of mattresses, sofas/sofabeds, wicker chairs and non-flat boxed chairs, large and/or awkward sized desk tops, assembled furniture, and large plants (delivery can be arranged for these items at regular delivery costs).
Considering that regular Victoria to Vancouver service on board Pacific Coach is $29.95 per adult each way not including the BC Ferries fare of $14.85, this package deal represents some real savings...especially if you spend your $250 minimum and make back the $40 you spent on your bus fare!
Buses depart Victoria at 7:30AM and return at 7:30PM. For complete schedule information visit PacificCoach.com.
