A report on the Sun Peaks website indicated that operations ceased effective January 20, 2020 - very disappointing news. They will continue to operate the daytime In-Resort Shuttle service and provide Airport Transfers, Inter Resort Transfers and private transfers with their 24 passenger bus and 14 Passenger Ford Transit and will continue to fulfill all their pre-booked transfers with their taxi for the rest of the ski season. We wish them well as it took a lot of time, effort, and money to try and make a go of the taxi service.
A Sun Peaks Taxi service started operating in October 2018, long overdue according to many guests and locals alike!
While Sun Peaks offers a free shuttle bus service that loops around the resort during the day in winter season, and shuttle buses are available for trips to/from Kamloops, Big White, Revelstoke, Whistler, Vancouver, etc., there has not been an official taxi service operating year-round in Sun Peaks until now.
Owners Brianna and Kurtis Wyllie moved to Sun Peaks from the lower mainland in 2017, and while heading to a restaurant in the village with their aunt one night, realized how crazy it was that there was no easy way to get there. Many months and mounds of paperwork later, the locals are now up and running with their full-service Sun Peaks taxi business.
They have a 4 passenger all-wheel drive SUV taxi that will be operating year-round, and a 6 passenger all-wheel drive van that will be operating October 1 to April 30 each year – each equipped with a roof rack for skis, boards and gear.
Their operating license is somewhat unique, in that they are allowed to pick-up and/or drop-off anywhere in British Columbia. So they will be operating in and around Sun Peaks Resort on a regular basis, but can also be hired to pick passengers up at YVR/Vancouver Airport, take passengers to/from Whistler or another ski resort, or just take you down to Kamloops for re-stocking your shelves. Of course there is always Sun Peaks Cargo for very affordable grocery and package pick-up and delivery services, but it is nice to now have options.
Deposits are required to book a Sun Peaks taxi service that originates or ends outside of the Sun Peaks area, and given the very limited number of taxis, pre-booking any trip is highly recommended.
Rides around the village will range from around $8-$15, trips to Kamloops around $165 each way, and trips to or from YVR/Vancouver will be around $1,000 + gratuity(taxes included).
They will be operating 24/7, 365 days of the year. And given the work and effort involved, we encourage you to use them whenever possible for your safety and convenience while getting out and about in Sun Peaks.
