The Perimeter Bus to Whistler Is No More

While on holidays a friend of the family tried to book a Perimeter bus trip to Whistler to visit her son. This is a trip she makes a couple of times a year. She was shocked to find out Perimeter had ceased operations, effective late November. Now that I’m back, I checked it out myself, […]
