DC ALL-NIGHTER GREASEBUS SERVICE BEGINS THIS WEEKEND
The Boardroom W4th and Lonsdale locations will act as main pick up and drop off locations
February 9, 2010 – Vancouver, BC – The DC All-Nighter Greasebus will offer local snowboarders transportation to Grouse Mountain at no charge beginning this weekend. The free shuttle service will begin at Friday, February 12th and run until Sunday, February 28th.
Boardroom W4th – departures every 2 hours from 8PM – 6AM
Grouse Mountain – hourly departures on the half hour from 8:30PM – 5:30AM
Lonsdale Quay – departures every 2 hours from 9:15PM – 5:15AM
What makes this service unique is the bus will not be running off of traditional gasoline. The DC All-Nighter Greasebus will run solely on soybean oil recycled from the Grouse Mountain kitchen. Named “Greasebus”, it is the first waste vegetable oil powered bus to provide riders with shuttle services to and from mountain resorts in North America. It outputs zero sulfur dioxide emissions, which is a major cause of acid rain.
There will be limited space on the bus and seating will be based on a first come, first serve basis. Riders of the DC All-Nighter Greasebus will have a chance to win a 2010-2011 season’s pass to Grouse Mountain, snowboards from DC and Boardroom gift certificates.
