Greyhound has daily service to Mount Vernon and Bellingham from Seattle and Vancouver. It also serves Stevens Pass, Leavenworth, Cashmere, and Wenatchee from Everett and Spokane. (Note, though, that you can't buy tickets at Cashmere and Stevens Pass.) Valley Shuttles vans provide access to Stehekin Valley Road. In mid-May there's service to the lower Stehekin Valley; come June you can get a lift to the upper valley. In July the shuttles serve Cascade Pass's east trailhead (near Marblehead) and other destinations within 20 mi of the Stehekin boat dock. Reservations are strongly recommended.
Many communities throughout the region have bus service. Island Transit buses on Whidbey Island are free. Link Transit buses in the Wenatchee area cost 50 to $1 (payable in cash), depending on how far you travel. Rates also vary in Whatcom County. To ride buses in Skagit County you have to buy a pass (available at local stores); four trips will cost you $2; $5 buys 10 trips.
