A visit to Richmond will be made much simpler thanks to the new Hop-on, Hop-off attraction tour that runs through mid-September.

The first bus leaves Radisson Hotel Vancouver Airport (No. 3 Road and Cambie) at 9:25 a.m., with service every hour until the last bus leaves the hotel at 4:25 p.m. and finishes its tour of Richmond around 6 p.m. at River Rock Casino Resort after visiting popular local spots including Steveston and the Richmond Olympic Oval.



One-Day tickets start at $29 for adults, $25 for seniors and youth, and $20 for children ages six to 12. A family pass (two adults and two children) costs $85.

The tour service runs from Wednesday to Sunday each week, as well as on holiday Mondays, through Sept. 17.

Extra service will be made available on July 1 for Canada Day, Aug. 7 for B.C. Day, and Sept. 4 for Labour Day.

The attraction tour is a partnership between Tourism Richmond, Vancouver Trolley Company, Richmond Olympic Oval, Richmond Hotel Association, McArthurGlen Designer Outlet, River Rock Casino Resort and Pacific Gateway Hotel.

Bruce Okabe, the new CEO of Tourism Richmond, said this service fulfills a pressing need for quick and direct routes to the city’s attractions.

“This service will provide a richer visitor experience for overnight and day trippers to Richmond, as well as an opportunity to expose more local businesses to tourists, and grow the overall visitor economy,” Okabe said.TIMETABLE
