Getting around Whistler is simple - a popular multi-use trail runs through its neighbourhoods at a very manageable grade. Whistler Village is pedestrian only but cyclists are welcome just about everywhere else. Alternatively, residents and visitors can get around by driving.
The pedestrian Village and the Valley Trail set the tone for non-vehicle travel. Today, Whistler has the highest per capital use of public transit in the country, and a fleet of hydrogen-fueled buses that contribute to the overall sustainability of the resort.
Whistler also offers accessible routes and easy access, making it an accessible and inclusive resort community for all residents and visitors. Click here for more information on Whistler’s Accessibility Map.
Whistler residents care about the community they live in; and affordable, safe, reliable and sustainable transportation is of great importance to them.
Currently 58 per cent of Whistler residents travel to work by carpool, transit, walking or biking in the summer and 96 per cent of seasonal residents get around using these modes of transportation in the winter.
The Whistler Way is part of a transportation demand management plan aimed to promote active and healthy modes of transportation within Whistler by building awareness and support of programs, infrastructure, events, services, policies, and information that lead to positive and lasting behaviour change.
The Whistler Way is intended to provide Whistler residents and visitors with information and options for transportation and active mobility.
