SiWC Ride Share


Need a ride? Want to share ferry costs or gas expenses to SiWC? Like the idea of cutting your carbon footprint by carpooling? You've come to the right place.


Use the comments section below to post your ride share needs. As with the room share blog, we offer this space to post ride share requests as a convenience, but have no involvement in the process at all, so please do your homework and ask all the questions you need to ask to feel comfortable sharing a trip with someone. Have fun; be safe!



I'm driving up from Seattle area on Thursday, coming back on Sunday afternoon. if anyone needs a ride, please contact me.

Ron--Would you be passing the airport around noon ?

I'm flying into Vancouver Thursday (11a.m. arrival) and leaving Monday (depart 6:45 a.m.)- anyone interested in sharing a cab to and/or from the airport?

Interested in sharing a taxi to Surrey for conference.
I am flying on Westjet (WS443) from Ottawa; Thursday, October 21; arrive Vancouver 12:56
Also return share if possible. I am leaving Monday on 10:30 flight, but could go earlier and hang about the airport.

My United flight arrives Thursday at 1:30. If you don't mind waiting, we can share a cab ride.
I leave Sunday night.

I'd love to car pool with someone from Victoria, share your ferry cost, help the environment... I'm going over on Thursday and returning Sunday. Thanks :-)

Hi Kathy,
Were you saying sure to me or someone else?
I'd love to share your car and the expenses, but my master class is at 5:30 on Thursday, so I have to head over mid-day. Want to share a ride back to Victoria on Sunday?

I am going to be volunteering at th conference Friday night, all day sat, sun. If you need a ride to or from the conference to a place between the conference or Tsawwassen, I have room in my car.

please email me so we can make arrangements.


Hi Clifford,
Are you heading back to Victoria on Sunday? I'd love to join you.
Look forward to hearing back.

I'm arriving Thursday morning at 7:40 if anyone wants to share a cab to the hotel.

Hello, I am going from Crofton, near Duncan, about Wed afternoon, and then to the conference Thurs and leaving either Sunday or Monday after the conference.

It's still flexible as I hope to hook up with my kids for a coffee or meal, but nothing is set yet.

Happy to share my car/space with a fellow writer!


Hi Gail, I too am going to the conference, but I am taking my car and staying with my daughter. I was just interested to hear from someone nearby with the same interest. Have we met? Your name seems familiar. OI could drive you if you want, but I will be leaving to catch the 12:30 ferry. It would be great to get together and talk. I'd love to hear what you are working on. If you are on that ferry, I am mid-fifties, blonde, grey felt jacket and blue scarf. Actually my photo is on my website,
except I have glasses and my hair is longer.
Hope we can connect, if not this weekend then maybe after.

Hi Gail, did you get the email I just sent? I'm not sure how to get this to actually send. Judy Hudson

Due to last minute change in plans, I am hoping someone is willing to share a ride and a room from Victoria, arriving Thursday night and leaving Sunday afternoon. My car or yours.

My e-mail address is



I am taking my car over on the 7am ferry, Friday, from Victoria to Tsswassen and returning Sunday.
I am happy to give somebody a ride.

I require a ride from 70th/Granville to the Conference - anyone available today or Sunday? I would love to go today, it seems like the best workshops.
