The bus gets to go through a special border crossing and can avoid up to a two hour wait at the border.

OTOH we had a great time renting a car in Vancouver and driving south, going on to the Chukanut Trail and stopping at an Oyster House for lunch. But AIRC we had a late flight when we did that.
US Direct is for people flying from Vancouver to the US . It doesn't do a x border transfer 2:45PM is way to early to fly from Seattle..
