What is the Whistler Way?
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 - Moving in the Right Direction
- 58% of Whistler residents travel to work by carpool, transit, walking, or biking in the summer.
- 96% of seasonal residents get around using these modes of transportation in the winter.
According to the 2009 Resort Municipality of Whistler Community Life Survey, Whistler residents value and want to see funding allocated to the Valley Trail, transit, road maintenance, snowclearing, and access to nature and parks.
We care about the community we live in.
The Whistler Way — What Moves You?
The Whistler Way is intended to provide Whistler residents and visitors with information and options for transportation and active mobility.
Of all the changes you can make to reduce your carbon footprint, changing your mode of personal transportation offers the biggest payback in reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
Take time to explore your options for walking, cycling, ride-sharing, parking, and taking transit toget to Whistler and to get around Whistler.

The Whistler Way was developed by Whistler’s inter-partner Transportation Advisory Group as part of a marketing campaign in 2000, to raise awareness about preferred transportation options (carpooling, cycling, walking, taking transit) and to counter a perception that one needed a car to live, work, and play in Whistler. The campaign focused on community pride and “cool” Whistler culture.
The Whistler Way encourages residents, second home owners, and guests to consider their transportation options, get informed, and do their part to reduce our carbon footprint. Together we can make a difference-- It might start with a bike ride to work or a charter bus trip to Whistler.
