If you have questions that are specific to this city or venue, please ask them in here and other forum members will do their best to help. This is a great place to share information about places to stay or eat, as well as how different venues are handling the GA lineup -- things like that.

If you have general tour-related questions, please use the main TOURS board. If you're looking to buy/sell/trade tickets at face value, please use the Tickets Buy/Sell/Trade board.

Anyone have suggestions on how to get from Vancouver to Seattle without having to rent a car?  Looks like the only other true options are bus ride or train.

I think some friends used the bus when they did this a few years ago, and had a good experience with it. Alaska Airlines also flies between those two cities, but probably more hassle and $$ than it's worth.

A friend and I took the bus several years ago (Popmart, I believe), and it was no hassle. I think a 3hr-ish trip?

I have been leaning towards the train so that looks like the route I will take.  Everything I read makes it sound like the border crossing can be a real pain, especially when on a bus since everyone has to get off.  Some people have said it can take up to 2 hours.

Bolt bus is pretty good apparently. It only stops in Portland, Seattle, Bellingham, the border, and Vancouver.

You will need to take a bus then SkyTrain. This link has a trip planner so it will tell you exactly what bus/train to take.

I am taking the Amtrak Cascades from Vancouver to Tukwila on Saturday after the show. It is an early departure(6:30am), but the views along the way look great and it will be nice to just relax. The Station in Vancouver is also very close to BC Place.
