The Greater Vancouver Zoo offers two options for groups of people with disabilities and/or senior groups.
ACCESSIBILITY TOUR BUS POLICY
This policy is for groups of people with disabilities or senior groups who experience difficulties walking long distances. Your group(s) will be picked up by our tour bus at the concession area and driven throughout the paved areas of the zoo. The bus tour will conclude at the concession area. The following times and conditions must be adhered to:
September - March:
Weekdays between 9:30 am and 4:00 pm.
SAFETY IS PARAMOUNT
As your Bus Tour will be within Zoo grounds, safety must come first. Over crowding during the busy season undermines the safety to you, and everyone else on zoo grounds. Wherever possible we will do our best to accommodate everyone in a safe and secure manner.
Drive-Thrus at the Greater Vancouver Zoo are available for special needs groups and/or senior groups who experience difficulties walking long distances. Group(s) will be permitted to drive their own bus, (no more than 33' long), or mini-van through the zoo, providing the following times and conditions are adhered to.
All Drive-Thrus are dependent upon availability.
