Tofino Bus Island Express is a locally owned Vancouver Island bus company that offers daily scheduled passenger service as well as charter bus services. Based in beautiful Tofino, B.C., they provide daily transportation to Tofino, Ucluelet and Port Alberni from Parksville, Nanaimo, Vancouver and Victoria. Tofino Bus has helped Markus in his dream to not own a vehicle until they can fly and run on a sustainable energy source. Being car-free certainly has not restricted him from traveling and in fact has enabled him to save more money in order to travel. Get on the Bus! or even better, the bike!
