The Annual Ride Share Blog, 2016 Edition

Like our annual room share blog, this one's all about the comments. Looking for someone to share a ride or a cab from the airport or the ferry terminal? Post in the comments. Want to carpool from other parts of YVR, the Island, or Seattle? Post that, too. Happy to drive, but looking for someone to ride with you and share gas and parking charges? Ask away.

It's helpful to say whether you are looking to share a cab, be a carpool driver or be a carpool passenger as well as where you'll be coming from (airport, ferry, or elsewhere) and what day(s) and approximate time(s) you're planning on coming and going. Please be smart about your safety. Don't post your address or flight number or other specifics here publicly. We provide this comment trail for your convenience by popular request, but we don't know many of the people who post and we do not get involved in this process. Carpool arrangements are made at your own risk. 

Don't forget to check back in case someone responds to your post. We suggest taking the details to email once you've made a connection.

See you soon!


Howdy. I'm coming from Seattle. I have a car available to me but I'd much rather ride in a carpool. I can leave any time on Thursday, but I need to be back in Seattle by about 5pm on Sunday. I live close to I5, just north of downtown. Let's see... I don't smoke, I'll contribute gas money, I tend to travel fairly light, my passport is current, and I'd be happy to drive (even if it's a manual)... I just don't want to drive my car by myself if I can avoid it. 

Hi! Jane Decker and I land in Vancouver at 6 PM on Wednesday. Is there anyone who wants to share a taxi to the hotel at that time?

Very interested in the shuttle ride. My flight arrives Thursday at 5:50 pm. How much?

We are arriving at the Abbotsford International Airport (YXX) at 1:20 on Thursday. Anyone interested in ride- or cab-sharing to Surrey and the conference?
